People who have known me as a homebrewer for a long time often ask me what I think of professional brewing.
I knew distributing beer would be hard work and I wanted to sign up with distributors as soon as possible.
Most brewers will tell you that attending the Great American Beer Festival is one of the highlights of the year for them. It is a big spectacle of beer, brewers, and beer lovers. It is something for every beer
geek’s bucket list.
I received an email from a homebrewer dreaming of becoming a commercial brewer and he asked, “How late is too late for a determined fool to chase an old dream?”
I think most brewers would agree, a beer’s life begins the moment the yeast are finished with fermentation.
It all seems so simple on paper. You brew the beer, stick it in some packaging, then sell it to the thirsty hoards. How hard could it be? It isn’t rocket science, right?
