Honestly, this is all you'd need to get things going in a small brewpub.
I'd upgrade to 10bbl though.



5bbl system

I love the copper....I want it!

4 years until I can actually start venturing into something like this...4 years. Can you imagine?

$48000, AND I pay the shipping?!? Screw that! Besides, I thought you were coming up here to be a rig-pig in four years?

Ouch.

It only took 5 minutes and 1 post for someone to TRY to squelch your dream.

ETA: Added the words, "TRY to". Dude is made from stronger stuff.

Cheyco's in a pissy mood today, don't know what's up with him...

Dude, live the dream, bro! You go to sleep dreaming about a brewpub rather than running a micro, I take it?

Wow, I feel terrible.

Sorry Dude, let me make it up to you by being the first to sponsor you in the 'Dude's Skatin' for the 5bbl - Skate-a-thon'

How's $0.05 per lap sound?

Definitely. and well, I'm also going by things I've heard. Vinnie Cilurzo said the restaurant fuels his beer production. If I made good enough beer to be worthy--then future expansion would be possible.

I love food as much as I love beer though--I'd love to be able to do this. And I'd keep that brewery behind all glass so everyone could see the process. Take the loyal customers back there for a sip of the newest beers....make them empty the mashtun...you know, stuff like that.

That sounds more attracive to me (as long as we're dreaming)

The main nightmare, as I understand it, for micros is distribution. Brewpub avoids that issue. Plus, I love food and cooking and wouldn't mind being involved in that part of the operation as well.

Have you thought about taking some courses in brewing (not that you don't know how to brew... ). Like, that school up in Vermont that's really well-regarded, or the program that Chimone's doing?

How much longer until your government obligations are over?

A brewpub! Cool!

I'm going to be your first customer! I'm going to be the prick who walks in and orders a Bud Light and a grilled cheese sammich!
