Chimone,

Wow! Sounds very familiar in what I am doing too. I am in the process of searching for a location. I am also in the making of a BrewPub. Where I live there is but one in the area and it is within driving distance of about 12 miles. I am planning on locating property in my town. We have several unique opportunities that will place us well ahead of any competition in the area. I have lived in my town for over 33 years and know almost all small business owners. My brother-in-law is an excellent brewer and has won many awards including national titles. I too love to brew and have brewed many awesome beers. I recently received my masters in business and plan to forge ahead with this life long dream (at least as far as I can remember). I am also a history buff - no expert but love the fact that beer has been the staple of life since its discovery. My motivation is to contribute something to the history of beer.

I hope to read about yours someday and likewise you mine. Good luck!!

- WW

Right on wilson, good luck to you as well!

I just scored a job with the brewery one town over. Tonight is my first night, and its bottling night.....Yippee, bottling!!! Heh, it has to be better than doing it in my kitchen and washing all of the bottles by hand though. He told me to be prepared to get wet.

Damn, I havent been this excited about a new job....ever.

It is Dave's Electric Brewery in Bisbee AZ. Its not a very big place, but he is living his dream through it, and said he would be more than happy to let me learn as much as possible there.

So what's the update?

I'd be excited to hear what you have so far. Experience and lessons alike.

I'm going to cross ref threads here but read through my post @ "Business Idea Question" if you get a chance. How far off was I? How much of that have you seen so far? What is different? What can you add for Rono that would be more relevant or the biggest help?

I hope everything has been going great for you and wish you and your family the best of luck! I hope someday to ask for a brewery tour and swap stories with you over a couple of your own beers!

Cheers!

Well lots have changed since the first post. School is going great though, its a bit harder than I first thought but I just cant seem to get enough brewing theory. I love this stuff. There is quite a bit of contradicting info between the pros and homebrewers. Ive since stopped even getting into discussions on the differences here on the board. And the instructors....well they want you to stop considering yourself a homebrewer immediately. Like its a degrading title or something.

Ive volunteered many hours at local brewpubs, and well I come to the realization that brewing professionally isn't even close to being as relaxing or fun as homebrewing. Its well.......a crappy job. Rewarding yes, but still really crappy. Loads of hard work, and well Im currently a lazy gov't contractor. Work is a 4 letter word


New avenues have opened up. Ive also decided not to go into business with my family. That would be a very, very bad thing to do. I have a local bar owner ready to start discussing plans for adding on to an allready existing establishment and depending how much I want to bring to the table, he'll make me a partner on the endeavor.


I dont know......Right now, Im just happy homebrewing. It just seems everyone around me wants me to make the jump asap. If it happens, it happens....we'll see

Can you give us a top 10 contradictions list or something similar? I know that I'd be interested in reading it.
