Many Nano breweries are happy to stay put with their existing brewing system, but see opportunities to sell their beer well beyond their taprooms. Besides expanding your own physical brewery, there are several options to consider that other small craft breweries are using to increase their brewing volumes while not investing in a larger brewhouse. One avenue is contract brewing your recipes with a larger brewery that has existing capacity. The other is an alternating proprietorship so that you share the resources of a larger brewhouse with other craft brewers.
