We have been brewing for many years (I would say decades but that makes me feel old). Over the years we have introduced many people to the joys of homebrewing, we started our own brewing webcast and have enjoyed every minute of it. Just like every other homebrewer we dreamt of opening our own brewery. Unlike most homebrewers we decided to do more than just dream, we decided to act.
We spent a few years talking with professional brewers and beer distributors. We spent long nights reading other brewers success stories and analyzing failures. We studied processes and equipment, we examined our own processes for improvement, and then we spent 2 years putting it all together in a business plan.
In the summer or 2016 after several years of preparation we incorporated and started to sell stock in our dream. Our goal is to have our pilot brewhouse open by Summer 2020.
We’ve come along way from an old leaky door-less horse barn with no water, outdated and nonfunctional electrical, that was used to store old junk. We are almost there and are very excited.
