Everybody is always talking about making award winning beer from extract so its entirely possible. Although I'm sure the vast majority are AG based.

Here's a turnkey setup http://www.addabrewpub.com/procedure.html
I don't know. They are in it to sell their extract and at 30 cents a pint, that's almost TWICE what it costs me to make a pint of Bavarian Hefeweizen and my bulk purchasing power is limited to finding folks to go in on a pallet.

This is kind of funny but I was visiting with the guy that owns the local grocery store, he told me that one of the bigger towns in our area has a brew pub, I had no idea. Anyway ends up they use a similar system like the one I linked to, its all prepackaged extract, mix with water in the tanks ferment and serve. You can bet I'm gonna check that out and report back here!

Whats a brew pub get for a pint $2.50? $3.50? thats a pretty good profit margin.

I only have one local brewpub and it is small and dinky, but I know for a fact they brew AG and onsite. I love the way it smells when they are brewing. like the smell of homebrewing magnified by 1000. they had their spent grains outside in a wheelbarrow one time and swmbo jokingly tried to convince me to steal them not realizing they were pretty much worthless lol.

Not all the restraunts brew on site, but they do get their beer from other restraunts. The closest BJ's to me, Cerritos CA, does not brew on site. They get kegs from another one. I have been to the one in Covina CA and they do brew. The Cerritos location just isn't big enough to brew.

When I was in Ca, almost 6 years ago, BJ's food was great, but their beer sucked ass. I made better beer than them back then and y'all should be buying from me now!!!

I think in BC if a brewpub opened up that was extract all the other brewpubs would rally together and kill the demon spawn. Swords though the dark heart, burning the body and pissing on the ashes type of thing.

Pacific Coast Brewing Company in Oakland, CA is an extract brewpub. I believe they chose extract because they had a great location for a restaurant, but not enough space for an all-grain operation. The brewing network has an interview with one of the brewers, it was rather amusing, not because of the extract but for the brewers views on styles.

They just celebrated their 17th anniversary, extract is possible, just not common.
