Some of the things listed, you may or may not need depending on how things are setup and what type of equipment you use. Were you looking at direct fire/gas, or steam, or electric elements for heat source? Most breweries use steam due to its efficiency. Then you may have issues with power due to a lot of boilers using 480v. A lot of this also depends on barrel capacity as well. probrewer.com is a great resource.

A 2006 study found that the average American walks about 900 miles a year.

Another recent study found that Americans drink an average of 22 gallons of beer a year.

That means, on average, Americans get about 41 miles per gallon.

Not bad.
