I recently got offered to take over a brewery. The last brewer walked out. The owner wants to rent to us and purchase the kegs for the pub. We have been going back and fourth with the lawyers about everything from the partners agreement to setting up the LLC. We will pay rent ($200 a month) and have full contol over the brewery as owners. We have the option to buy the current equipment, but for now we can use it as long as we wish, as along as we keep producing beer for the pub. When our liscense comes back from the TTB and the Farmers brew license for the state (MA), everything with change over to us and our name. Looks like I will be brewing 10 bbls a week, starting this wen. I have a friend who owns a local brewery who has been awesome to us. He has offered to help us clean the equipment (the last brewery cleaned nothing....mash, kettle, tanks....). We have enough gain to brew about 4 batches, so atlest we can get caught up there. I realize that the money is going to take some time to start coming in, but i think we will be alright. Our expenses are rent, utilites and materials. We also are paying for all the paperwork, not as expensive as I thought it might me. So, tues we will clean and wen we will brew our first 10 bbl batch...going to be a pale (keep it simple for the first one). Whish me luck.
