About a Career as a Brewery Owner
If you have been brewing at home, you probably have one or more favorite beer recipes that you’ve shared with friends. Imagine having your own profitable microbrewery business sharing your specialty craft beer with thousands of people.
When you start a microbrewery, you will join an industry that has seen amazing growth in recent years, with craft beer sales in the U.S. now a multi-billion dollar business.
Beer lovers are willing to pay higher prices for beer that is of superior quality and better taste than the cheap brews produced by the mega-breweries that dominated the beer market in years gone by.
In fact, craft beer sales are growing as imported beer sales decline, and the number of small, independent brewers has grown from fewer than 400 less than a decade ago to more than 1,500 today.
With beer from small brewers more in demand than ever before, you have many options for starting your own microbrewery. You might choose to:
Start a craft brewery to make your own high quality beer
Use the facilities of an existing brewery to save money while brewing your beer
Open a brew pub to sell your beer
Your microbrewery might even specialize in organic beers. Or you might enjoy offering beer tastings or brewery tours to market your craft brewery and increase your profits.
