Great post. I think I read a post from Brian Hunt at Moonlight that said many of the points, especially size. He said he wouldn't even think about trying anything smaller than 7bbl, it's just not cost/time effective.

Thanks for the post! I am in the planning stages right now to open my own nanobrewery, and this just gives me hope.

i wish i made good enough beer. there is a bar near me that is known in the area for having beers that no one else has and if i could make something that could really wow the owner he would be all about selling it. that alone could get me started. but i just bought a house to i have just enough money for about a can of extract right now. looks like this will have to wait for me

Gordie is my new hero!!! Now, all I need is a personal picture and I'll send it to FatHead for a nice wall poster in my bedroom, sorry Incredible Hulk. I am talking to a guy that wants to open a brewery but doesn't want to shell out the bucks for a large equipment setup. This is the shizzle fo' rizzle!!!

The winery has been open for almost couple years now. The main things that are stopping me from doing it is lack of brewing experience, and the fact that the winery is on the east coast, and me+wife+kids are on the west coast. I figure I've got about three years to get all the ducks in a row if I want to move back to MD and take a swing at it. They also have a small vineyard and I think I'm going to try to see if I can get them to plant some hops next spring.

Best of luck and hang in there on those "nothing is going right, another thing to fix" days.

Great post!

Thanx for letting us live vicariously through your venture, and giving hope to those on the cusp of moving in the same direction.

Gordie thanks for the post.

California looks like a state very friendly towards small brewers.
The bad thing about Texas, we have a 3 tier system, no self distributing.
Without the county approval no state brewers license will be issued.
I read our 290 page document a few times looking for loopholes.

I wish you a great brewing future.
