A friend of mine wrote this blog post about his journey to go pro.  He's working on opening Burlington Beer Company 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)
