Breweries are quite popular with a large selection of customers, whether they are a casual drinker of beer, an IPA enthusiast, or simply looking for somewhere to spend their weekend. As the demand and popularity of beer keeps on rising, so will the interest in new breweries. If you are considering opening up a brewery of your own, we have put together a list of tips and steps to help guide you through the long process and successfully open your own business. Read on to learn more!

Write Down Your Brewery Business Plan

A business plan is one of the top steps for beginning any business. Not only will it act like a roadmap that guides you through the entire process of opening up your business, but it is essential for securing funding from all investors. A solid business plan includes detailed information on your market, business structure, concept, and financial situation.

Decide on a Brewery Concept

Your concept is what actually defines your brewery. It influences everything from how customers identify you as a business to the messaging you target in advertisements to the kind of employees you will hire. To help identify your brewery concept, you will need to pick a name, identify your brand, and figure out which kind of brewery you wish to operate. You could go with a nano brewery, microbrewery, brewpub, taproom brewery, or regional brewery.

Figure Out the Cost of Starting Your Brewery

Since there are so many different kinds of breweries, the cost of opening your own can vary a bit. Multiple factors, including how much beer you plan on making, the possibility of serving food along with maintaining a dining room, and the size of the property you will be operating in, could influence the cost of your brewery. The brewery and bar equipment will depend on the size of your brewery and whether you purchase it used or new. Brewery furniture can range from a few thousand dollars to even more, depending on the quality. If you need restaurant supplies like tablecloths, utensils, glasses, or other bar equipment, H.C.
