Hmm. Very interested in this. If anyone has more info please share. Not that I would be trying to do this any time soon or anything.

Also, how are they able to sell it? I thought you had to get a decent place and licenses and health inspections and all that stuff - as in not easy.

I think it's very well done, somebody must have a SWMBO that's a graphic artist.

Ditto, I think there website is very cool. I'm so bored with your standard website. It's nice to see someone make one interesting.

That is a lot of work for very little product going out the door!

It reminds me of a guy who wanted to use our pilot equipment to make a 1 bbl batch of beer. "How long will it take?" he asked. "About 6 hours" we replied. "But how long does it take you to brew your full 28 bbls?" "About 6 hours."

He figured a small batch would only take a couple hours. In reality (the moral here) it takes about the same time to produce a large batch as it does a small one.

But I guess I am missing the nano point - it is about the beer and not the nano money.

You want to make a small fortune brewing? Start with a large fortune.

Fresh and friendly website with a playful and open character. It also does not read like a storage shed brewery. Very nice job.

How does brewing like that reflect from a legal standpoint. I mean, aren't their taxes you have to pay for selling alcohol? If they are selling directly to the public they need a liquor license... how about for selling to bars/resturants?

I think that would be really cool actually to get a keg a month on sale somewhere. Just to make your favorite restaurant that much cooler.

If it is possible to get licensing to do this, I think its a great way to fulfill the pro-brewer bug that we all get, while keeping your day job. I would love to do a ~1bbl batch on Saturdays, bottle, and sell to local bars/beer stores. As long as I could turn enough profit to buy what I want for my nano-brewery, I'd be happy.

As for Gilligan's Brewery in Seattle... it's for sale. They've been kicked out of the storage unit by their landlord.
