That is a good point. A larger production brewery is basically the same as working in any factory.....it's just a little bit cooler since they making beer vs. widgets. Bottomline though it is still a factory. A nanobrewery though doesn't have to be that way and that is the beauty of it. Of course you will still have the long days and hard work....can't get away from that. Somebody operating a 1-3bbl nano has MUCH more flexibility in changing up beer styles, especially if they sell most of their beer via a tap room. There isn't a huge difference in producing 93 gallons of beer vs. 10 gallons. We aren't talking bottling lines, canning lines, hundreds of kegs, etc..
