Default First Beer related purchase upon winning the lottery

I play the powerball when it gets large strictly for the entertainment of thinking about what I would buy, winning would just be a bonus...

So, before any equipment I think I would hire an employee whose sole purpose would be to clean my brewery and equipment for me.

I'd prolly let him(or her) drink on the job.

What would yours be?

Maybe open a homebrew store. And a brewery in back. My whole goal would be to make good beer, and then help others recreate it if they wanted.

Buy a local brewpub and start putting better beer on tap.

Although someone to clean up is a good choice, I'm thinking a guy that can carry 50 lbs. sacks of malt on each shoulder all day would come in handy. With a few hundred million in winnings, I would start to measure in barrels instead of gallons.

My first beer related purchase would be a lot of beer because it would be party time if I won the lottery.

Seeing that the Powerball is over $500,000,000, I think I'd go ahead and purchase a profitable, functioning microbrewery.......and a Sabco Brewmagic system for home

I'd buy one of those fancy digital thermometers and may be a bench capper. Man that would be sweet, I'm going to buy two tickets right now

Brewpub/BBQ joint. Those two just seem to go together really well.

Then I would hire someone who could run that place so I don't run it into the ground.
