I have to write a paper for my business communications class. So I figured why not do it about beer/home brewing and that is were I'm stuck.
I have never done a research paper and have nothing more then a idea any help.
Would be great if there are any more students who have hopefully already done papers about brewing more the better.

Best option (I would think) would be the history behind the existence of beer since there's loads of resources on that particular topic. Does your school have an EBSCO or ProQuest server?
Primary: nada
Secondary: emptyness
Bottled/Fridge: Sierra Nevada Celebration
Bombers/Growlers/Aging: The Abyss, Firestone 19th Anniversary Ale
Kegerator: sanitizer!
Coming Up: something spiffy, most likely

Watch "How Beer Saved the World" by Discovery. It's an hour long and should give you tons of ideas.

You need to ask yourself, what, in terms of a business, is the message that you can put together a convincing argument for?.
You might consider the topic of why customers should patronize your brewers/vintners supply ... or the quality and message your brewery wants to express ... or why your brew pub is the best evenings' entertainment ... or how beer you are producing is the very best in its class (see websites from existing breweries etc), or how your retail hops sales business is important to the brewery business in your area .. blah blah. All these require some idea as to how those businesses operate, however with a bit of research you could put together a basic understanding of any of them. The importance is the message and how it expresses to your customer the high points of your business and why they should consider it.
