Shizmo Brewing Co.
That's what I figured. Anyways, best of luck. You'd be hard to find too many homebrewers who haven't had the same dream. Hopefully it pans out for you.

Great luck! Keep us Yay Area peoples posted, so we can start drinking the Shizmo when it hits!

As to Shizmo - Its a take on my last name, since most people cant pronounce it on its own.

Sounds like you have done your homework and I wish you well! That would be pretty much my dream job....

FYI...I have a friend that has a brewpub and he only does ales due to the time it takes to produce a lager. He has very limited space so he is turning his inventory very quickly. He also only kegs and sells to hotels, local ballbpark, etc. He's done very well.

Best of Luck!

Congrats and Good Luck.



But does this mean I should grab up your recipes before you copyright them?

Get the largest system you can. It's roughly the same amount of work to brew a 10 bbl as it is a 40 bbl. You need to sell a lot of beer to cover overhead.

Plan for the time in between getting the Brewery set up and waiting for the licensing. This can take quite awhile. One of the big issues that hurts Breweries is they get set up and fall short on capital.

Talk to some local Breweries. The craft brewing community is real supportive.

I wish you luck and hope this works out.

Edit: Here's a link to ProBrewer if you haven't found it already.
