3. When woiuld you like to start producing bottled beer? I'm under the assumption that this is the best way to get your brewery's name out there.
1. Im 35.

2. Startup capital is a mix of my own money, loans, and investments.

3. Bottled beer introduces the need to have labels and a somewhat expensive bottling line setup. Initially I only want to get it out to a bars in kegs, then after a while I'd like to start bottle distribution. Comes down to money money money!

a half dozen labeled, empty bottles sitting on a table is, in my opinion, great brand-building for the consumer. Kegged beer puts a lot of trust in bar staff to promote your beer over the established, better sellers. And - if it does sell (and I hope it does!) - will people remember the BRAND...or just what was on promotion tasted great?

just something to think about

Best of luck to you! As someone who sits in a cubicle all day dreaming of doing exactly what you're doing, it's nice to see someone actually make the leap.

Also, I think you should stick with "brewering" company, it's unique.

i sit in a cubicle all day as well. I just dont think I want to do that for too long. I'd rather sit in a dingy brewery all day AND ALL NIGHT, but know its mine. Same headaches, except you own them all! Is that really that much better.
