Dec. 17, 2020

When you are with friends from your favorite craft brewery, beer hits you, and they produce some delicious beers: why not turn the love of quality beer into a profession and start your own brewery? As a Small Craft Brewery Manufacturer, share with you.

If you are a serious person-not just buzzing-please understand that it takes a lot of planning, money and patience to realize this dream. Starting a small business is already difficult, and the brewery is a capital-intensive business with additional legal and licensing requirements.

How much does the equipment cost?


Your brewery needs the following basic equipment: kettles, kegs, boilers, bottling and canning lines, conveyors, cooling systems, storage tanks, fermentation tanks, filters and beer labeling machines, pipes and tubing, refrigeration equipment, cleaning Equipment, waste treatment system and faucet treatment.


Location and construction


Of course, your brewery also needs a home. The monthly rent depends largely on your location and the size of the building. When signing the lease, you may need to take out the first month's rent and the landlord's security deposit. Moreover, you may also need to build on the building to make it suitable for the brewery.


Other costs and issues


The cost of flooring is often overlooked. A good laminate floor can withstand shocks, temperature shocks and acid produced by beer, and the cost per square foot will be as high as $10 or more. When brewing, the beer will splash on the floor of the brewery. Therefore, if you are sitting there with a 100-barrel storage tank, then you don't want the cement below it to erode away and leave your tank to dump.

Then there are the necessary permits and legal requirements. You need to apply for a brewing license from the Tobacco and Alcohol Taxation and Trade Bureau. Although the application does not cost money, it usually takes four months to process. The cost can range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars, depending on how much work we ultimately need to do. You can also seek advice and save money from online legal services.

Similarly, the government will not approve your brewing license until all your equipment has been installed and put into use. This means that you even have to make and sell a drop of beer, and you have to pay a monthly fee. Therefore, it is planned to have working capital to manage these daily expenses.
