Nice story man and its cool to see that you've been brewing for 20 years. You guys have the perfect attitude for this biz and starting super small like that is key-good luck and let us know where your beer will be - Publik house? I'm going in to Boston soon and will swing by - hopefully it's that saison on tap.

This is all very interesting to read. Really gets the juices flowing and makes me wonder what it would take to get a small startup brewery going here in Manhattan Kansas. Tallgrass brewery is really knocking it out of the park and to be able to be as successful as you are right now makes me want to start a brewery also!

Maybe somebody asked this already and I didn't read the whole thread but why go through all of that work to do a nano brewery where you said you knew you would barely break even?
