A Few Things to Keep in Mind When Starting a Brewery

Starting microbrewery can be rewarding experience if you are passionate about lagers and beers. Also, if you are willing to experiment with your local market and different styles of beers, this may be a good small business option for you. Here are a few things to consider as you are getting your business off the ground.

You need to be familiar with the basic fundamentals behind the process of brewing beer and the equipment that is needed, like a beer centrifuge. If you have experience brewing beer as a hobby, you are more likely to have success starting at microbrewery. While the process that is used to brew beer on a large scale is pretty much the same as brewing it on a small scale, you will be required to make a significant investment to produce more beer, including purchasing a beer centrifuge.

It is wise to have a thorough understanding of the distribution process. Making a beer that tastes delicious is one thing. Getting others to buy it is a completely different matter. You need to figure out how you will get the beer you brew into bars, liquor stores, and pubs. It is common for smaller breweries to focus on a local market, even providing tours of the brewery so that visitors can see the brewing process and look at the beer centrifuge and the other equipment used to make their favorite beers.

You will also want to fully understand your craft and market. For example, starting a microbrewery in an area that will face competition from established breweries may prove to be a challenge you do not want to deal with.
