One Entrepreneur Wanted.
Hello all. First time post on homebrewtaok, long time reader.

I'm 24 years old and I've been out of school for about a year and a half now. After appying for jobs in all levels of every related industry to beer, wine, and other distribution companies, heck I even got turned down from a sake plant, I have come up with nothing. Currently I'm working full time, with a pricey college degree in food and beverage management, as a painter. Go figure.

Over the past year I've really spent alot of time deciding what I want to do with my life. I had dreams since I started grain brewing when I was 18 to go to school, get my degree, and then work my way through the brewing industry from the bottom up...reasonable idea, yes? but since large companies such as Dogfish only have about 150 employees, why would they even look at a recent college grad who's only brewing experience is in bootlegging and illegal underage brewing..so with no "experience" to put on my resume, I can say I've had my fair share of disappointment. I applied at budweiser for a tour guide job, not glamorous but hey, I thought it would be real great contact with the brewers and I can even stay late and help clean for free just for the experience! Not. I show up to the interview and they inform me that the position had been filled (clearly by someone less qualified than myself haha) and that I was more than welcome to apply for "gift shop cashier"...I'm definitely just a little overqualified fir that position at this point in my life...

...long story short, I won't be applying for a job working with people providing a sure sign of a good time...instead of BEER!!!! I was pissed at the way human resources handled that whole situation.

Sorry for the ramble, back to my point.

I've taken out a loan. I'm shopping now and eventually buying brewery equipment.

After crunching all the numbers and finalizing my business plan, I realize that this is something I can't do alone. There's just too much work for one man.

I'm posting here to ask if there is anyone in Massachusetts interested in a partnership for starting up a microbrewery. The hard work you read about is already done. I have all the MA licenses and permits needed. I am extremely business minded and I am seeking a hardworking individual who wants to be successful. And I am going to be successful, I just need to be given the chance that I have not yet been given. I feel sorry for every brewery I applied for. I really have no other option in this economy...well I can paint the rest of my life, but no.

so anyways, I'm not quite sure if I've reached my point...

Contact me if you are in Massachusetts and you are interested in brewing beer for a living. Or contact me if you are in the same boat as me...college degree, no experience, no job.

There's beers to be had,

Best of luck to you!

Groove_Rock 04-27-2012 09:20 PM

So 42 people have read, and no one cares to brew beer?

No offense, but with only two posts and misspelling Homebrew Talk in your first sentence of the first post it's smells like spam in here. If your offer is legit then we wish you the best of luck. You may want to check out probrewer.com and see if the folks there can help you out.

Cheers and good luck,

This is awesome. Best of luck to you. I may be banging on your door for a job when I decide to retire and hang up The Big Hat!

Groove_Rock 04-27-2012 09:53 PM

I had typed something out but it's not worth posting.

I'm just looking for good people who want to brew beer for a living or at least get some experience in the industry. Sorry if you overlooked me because you thought it was spam, that's ignorant.

And good luck with your home brews

Groove_Rock 04-27-2012 09:55 PM

Thanks poorboy, I'll be here

I'm always looking to help people out

barneygumble 04-27-2012 10:54 PM

I too first thought this was spam. I was gonna post a wiseass remark.

But if you are legit and are bankrolling this thing, like it reads, and are looking for help, or a minority partner trading labor for your investment, then I am suprised no one showed any interest either. So you say you have your licenses? Where is the home of this future brewery?

Groove_Rock 04-28-2012 04:07 PM

Nope, not spam

Legit and bankrolling. Lol

Yup, all licenses and permits.

And this will be in Chelmsford MA to start. Future plans are for a brewpub once a market has been established. Again, I went to a culinary school so good food is just as close to my heart as the brews....so the beers will be aimed towards pairing with food rather than most other breweries lately who have been brewing these "extreme" beers that most people just buy one six pack of and then say yea that's good, but I think I'll go with something else next time.

All that's left to do is finalizing the logo and labels, and tweaking the recipes I've created over the years to work with the new equipment.

As far as any other details we can discuss it through ?"pm"?
