Title: Blog post on going pro
Post by: Jimmy K on August 13, 2012, 05:05:54 PM
A friend of mine wrote this blog post about his journey to go pro.  He's working on opening Burlington Beer Company (http://www.burlingtonbeercompany.com/) in Vermont.

I'm learning that this post is pretty true.  Thankfully a monastic brewery is not quite as volume oriented.  Still, due to the nature of the process, brewing days and cleaning days are pretty long.  I think someone else said somewhere "you have to remember, a brewery is a factory.  It's a factory that makes pretty cool stuff, but still it is a factory."

But at our inauguration, seeing people enjoying the beer just made all the work worth it.  8)
