Craft Brewery Start-Up Boot Camp
With Steve Parkes, Audra Gaiziunas, and Matthew McLaughlin
Opening a commercial craft brewery is a far cry from just ramping up the amount of beer you brew. Steve Parkes, who has trained hundreds of pro brewers as lead instructor and owner of the American Brewers Guild, will walk you through the steps, planning decisions, and keys you need to know if you want to launch a commercial craft brewery. He’ll be joined by two experts to round out the interactive, live online workshop on Friday, May 21: Audra Gaiziunas will discuss business plans and the key financial numbers you need to know starting up a brewery and Matthew McLaughlin will teach you the legal checklist any start-up brewery should have in hand. Learn from their decades of expertise and experience to help you achieve your dream of opening up a brewery. This online workshop will be recorded so you can keep learning after the event with full access to video replays.
