This has been my dream since graduating from college. I had a business plan written, but I need to pay off that education!

Solution: Work at one of those big ol' breweries as an engineer until I make good enough beer to get people to pay for it. Thats what Dan Carey did...

Any AB or Miller-Coors employees out there need a damn good biochemical engineer? I'm your man...

The episode on Worth Brewing in IA (on BrewingTV) seemed to be a way to go.  Open a small pub and just supply your beer using a small brewing system (I think his was 20gal).  I've thought about approaching one of the existing pubs in town, and seeing if they'd let me brew occasionally on premises and sell at their establishment.  It might be a decent part-time gig, as much for fun as for profit.
