People always say,"good beer! You should open a brewery!"
I can cook but I don't want to be a chef.
I love my garden but I don't want to be a farmer.
I can drive but I don't want to be a bus driver.
Why ruin a perfectly good hobby?

The article didn't mention anything about the groupies or blow. You get 45 year old pot bellied groupies and the job blows.

Awesome! It now sounds even more enticing. Becoming a professional brewer is on my bucket list right after Alaskan Gold Miner, sword boat skipper like George cluney, and astronaut

Hey, to some of us, 45 is young!

Dude you rock!  Just gotta add rodeo clown, skyscraper window washer, and the guy paid to clean the inside of campground in-ground toilets (assuming he exists). At least there is a payoff in brewing.

There are some seriously cool perks involved with owning your own brewery, especially if you ignore you initial investment (which you hope to get paid back, eventually, right?): free beer, free brewing ingredients, lots and lots of free brewing gadgets. Beer trips are tax deductible. And probably the coolest part, you get to meet a lot of very cool people and have a back stage pass to just about any brewery in the country. It's kinda like getting to sit with the cool kids at lunch in your high school cafeteria.

Man, I hate finding out I'm a stereotype.  I've asked to volunteer in a brewery - and got the same bored response.  Me, a 50+ year old pot-bellied groupie.  Sad.

I'm going to go buy a lottery ticket.  That'll show em.

I'd go with the winning the lottery and opening a brewery option.

+1. Same here.  The closest I ever got was washing kegs for a brewery for awhile, but the the brewer moved after getting a new job , and the new guy brought in his own staff. So far the brewery lottery fund hasn't come through yet.

Looks like the boss may have an interest once his term is up
