Excellent! And good call making sure you get your props on the bottle. I always respect a restaraunt that will willingly tell or post who makes their beer. Besides, it's not like you made a custom recipe exclusive to them right? That's an extra 20%.

Bottling the Belgian: A Photo Odyssey

Beer is the mind-killer. Beer is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my beer. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see it's path. When the beer has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

Let me start by saying I'm not complaining nor am I boasting it's just that sales have exceeded production. I just spent 11 hours brewing back to back 10 gallon batches and it's not enough. I need to adjust my timing because it's way off. Ran out of labels, ran out of beer in 2 kegs for the tasters at the shop, and getting low on bottles to sell. This is happening much faster than expected and it's not even tourist season yet.
Help Mr. Wizard!!

I told ya Scott to bring out your bigger brewing system and get it up to speed. Sounds like your on a roll and time for larger brewing batches now. This sounds a lot better than no sales, congrats plus warmer weathers just around the corner, got suds?

It is nice to hear you got a good commercial order. You are now a private label!
I really wish you the best of luck.
Anything worth doing is never really easy so hang in there. You may need to bust out the bigger brewing systems soon, but keep a close eye on the cost. The death of a thousand cuts come from the small stuff and tax's.

Whew! Just read all 50 pages and I have to say that you are an inspiration. I've been wanting to go pro since I started some 20 years ago, but the military dictates where I'll be. But with retirement around the corner I figured I might go with brewing in my spare time and selling to local restaurants. I've even got the wife drawing up business plans for me should I be tempted to open up a real brewery.

You have helped convince me that it would be a good move to make. Also, that you can start small, which is what I wanted. Gives me hope. I wish you all the best.

And to offer some help for the above quoted text - have you thought about having a "guest" brewer every now and then? It would help with your lower-than-expected stockpile, and would possibly help another brewer who was thinking of going this route get his name out there. Plus would add a little variety to your arsenal.

Subscribed to see how big you get.
