Way to make the leap (or rather small step)!!   :P

I know the area... you'll have lots of access to people that's for sure!

Wishing you all the best Phil, can't wait to get started on the labels!

Just wanted to let everyone know that working with Phil on the logo design has been a pleasure. Most clients have no ideas, no direction and no clue, but Phil was ready with a unique "background story" that made my job so much easier. As a designer, a lot of what I do is translate feelings into reality, story into substance. When you have the emotion and the story its so much easier to create a design, and when you have a client that lets you do your job and also provides great input, you come up with what I believe is a great result.

Thanks for being such a great client Phil, you deserve all of the good things that will come to you! Congratulations and all the best!

Impressive graphics Tony. As far as regulations go it is refreshing to see the laxity in this area. And, Phil- if it doesn't work out you at least won't have put yourself in the poor-house trying to get started.

Best of luck! Keep us updated with your progress.

Yeah, I wouldn't have done it if it wasn't so easy and basically didn't cost anything. However echoing what's been said on the Going Pro threads, I can see how if I get lots of demand it quickly becomes expensive due to equipment upgrades. Can't brew commercially on anything less than 5 HL, but that's why I'm in talks with a few of the breweries around here for contracting. That's a bigger step on down the road, but we'll see how it goes.

Phil with all the talk over the last few months I'm glad to see this thing come to fruition.  Have fun with it and when it quits being fun hire more people to do the dirty work.  :)

A buddy of mine does nothing BUT contract brewing, all around the world, and he's doing pretty well for himself lately. Good luck with it all!
