When people taste my beer and say you should open a brewery, I laugh. I know how to make beer. I do not know the first thing about running a brewery for profit.
So is that to say if you had an angel investor and all the startup capital you needed, you wouldn't love to brew for a living?
If I could be in front of a screen clicking icons, sure. Have seen that done.
If it is all manual, no thanks. I have done that twice on an archaic system. You realize at some point that you can do it one day, but not every day. Brewing is a young man's game. I am an old fart.
If I had a brewery, I know there is paperwork, inventory, cellar work, loading dock work, ordering, etc. Then there are the sales, marketing, website, e-mails from customers, acounting, beer fests, etc.
Brewing would be fun, but only a fraction of the job. The owners often are behind a desk, a youngster is brewing.
