Default Can you tell a brewer lives here?

This is a photo of my fridge...in the kitchen...you know, the one that's supposed to contain food.

It must suck to be you.

On the flip side. Ive been talking to a realtor about a micro up here who went out of buisness. I have a bad feeling they are going to ask about 1.5mil for a small setup with 1200sq ft dining room.

The original owners (about 8) could not agree and ran the place into the ground. It was always packed even when it was ****ty. Avg income to the place was estimated at 3 mil. I cant get any more info until its out of court.


What should I look for? What do you think?

I don't get it, how did it go out of business if it was always packed? Something was fundamentally wrong with the business if that's the case.

From what ive heard- too many employees. Too many people wanting profits and really really bad book keeping

HAHA- nice fridge, 'Topia.

We're out at the cottage this weekend. We have the little dorm fridge with a small keg in it, so we only have three six packs in the regular fridge. I can't take a picture of it out here, but here's a list of what's in the fridge:

Stone APA
Steamworks APA
Capital Brewery APA
Crabapple wine

Condiments

3 containers of night crawlers
1 small container of leeches

onions
coffee creamer
Leftover potato salad

Tonight, we're having fish fry (that's why we have the night crawlers), cornbread, and some potato salad. Since I drink more than I eat, I can't waste precious refrigerator space on things like perishable food.
