Hello everyone, my wonderful wife got me a membership here for Christmas. I have been brewing for a while now and really, really enjoy it. I enjoy it so much so, that it has inundated our pantry and the fridge is generally full of some home brew or room is being made to store some. I have read several books on getting into the brew business and I feel my calling. However...I will finish out my career in the military first. With that, I am still looking at another 10 or so years until I can grow up and even consider this (NOTE: I am aware I cant walk out of this job and open a Nano or anything like that there are milestones in my brain I wont bore you with right now). My burning thought is what is your (the brewing community) thoughts on business over the next 10 years? We have seen an explosion over the last five or so, but what does it look like in the medium term? Has this been looked into yet or is it too soon?
I reassure myself that it will turn out well and there will still be a demand for good beer (a longshot?), but there is a reality to it and as I prepare my medium and long term goals I want to do it with some educated guessing. Thanks and happy brewing!
PS: First post here, looking forward to more discussions!
