Rank #1: Podcast: CBF 003 Best Practices for Managing Kegs.
In today’s podcast we present Best Practices to manage your empty keg inventory. It’s 8am, do you know where your kegs are? Unless you have a good system in place to monitor them, your kegs could be anywhere. Empty kegs have a tendency to grow legs and disappear. In my experience as CFO for a beer distributor, I can’t tell you how many times the inventory records showed one thing, and the physical count of empties showed another. There were always missing kegs. How many kegs do you own in your brewery? I’m talking about empties and full barrels – barrels that you bought and paid for. If you keep computerized records, the inventory report may tell you there are 1,000 kegs on hand. The big question is: how many do you really have? In this podcast, we raise the issue of how much cash is tied up in kegs, and how much money you stand to lose if you don’t have a good system to manage this part of your inventory. We’ll talk about several ideas you can use in your brewery to gain better control over your kegs. The ideas could also save your income statement from certain death in the form of a big write off of missing kegs. Best Practices to Manage Keg Inventory Preach the gospel: empties are Inventory Pay attention: Understand where empties get lost Use this process to keep track of kegs in your warehouse Use this process to keep track of kegs at retail
Rank #2: Podcast: CBF 002 Brewery Financing Basics.
In today’s podcast we’ll review the nitty gritty details of borrowing money to start up or expand your brewery. The decision to expand your brewery is a big one. You’ve reached a point where the demand for your beer far outweighs your brewing capacity. It’s time to take the leap into making your brewery bigger and borrowing money to finance the project. Borrowing money means working with banks. Working with banks requires a working knowledge of how loans work. This podcast will help you understand basic loan terminology and different types of loan structures, so that you can get the best loan arrangement possible.

Taking Your Microbrewery to the Next Level
Rank #1: MicroBrewr 085: Starting a brewery is a full-time job.
Cody Martin worked in civil engineering and environmental engineering. After touring some breweries and seeing that they use familiar equipment, he asked his wife if he could start a brewery. She found work in Texas and he started Martin House Brewing Company in Fort Worth, Texas. “Starting a brewery is a full-time job.” [Tweet This] After they moved back to Texas, Cody worked full-time for 15 months to start his brewery. “If you want to be a brewery in planning for 3 or 4 years,” he offers, “then go ahead and keep your job.” In that time, he worked on his business plan, found partners and investors, introduced himself to local breweries, and work 20-30 hours per week for free in a local brewery. Once the business plan was complete, they had 6 months allotted to finding investors and securing funding, and they got it done in only 6 weeks. They talked to anyone and everyone they could find or with whom they could make connections. In the end, the owners with “skin in the game” had contributed approximately $60 thousand. Investors pitched in significantly more than that, he says. Approximately half of the capital came from friends and family, and about half came from other investors whom they had never previously met. They were able to cut costs by doing the majority of the work themselves. “We literally built everything in this place ourself,” Cody remarks. It helps that Cody is an engineer. They also called on old friends who gave them discount prices on skilled work. Additionally, Cody says it very important to partner with people who compliment, rather than duplicate your own knowledge and skills. “You need to make sure you have the team with the full talents of running a business,” Cody advises, “not just 3 brewers.” Financially, it has worked well. “We have zero debt,” says Cody, “so we were able to break even on that pretty quick. A few months in, we started paying ourselves a salary. And then our first full year of production, we were able to pay our investors back a little.” Cody even had the opportunity to make a collaboration brew with one of his all-time favorite bands, Toadies. In summary, Cody’s advice for starting a brewery: Quit your job. Have the support of your family. Assemble a team with diverse skills. Don’t buy a glycol chiller from China. Brewery specs: Kettle size: 30 BBL. Size and quantity of fermentation tanks: 4, 30-BBL; 2, 60-BBL fermenters. Size and quantity of bright tanks: 1, 30-BBL; 1 60-BBL bright tanks. Annual brewing capacity/last year’s production: 6,000-BBL capacity. About 2,800 BBL last year. Square footage: 9,000 sq. ft. Years in operation: 2.5 years (opened March 2013).

Rank #2: MicroBrewr 054: Start a debt-free nanobrewery.
We all have a dream to start a brewery. Many of us don’t have the money required to start the brewery of our dreams. Lynn Jacobs and her husband, Jeff, started Great Storm Brewing in Colorado Springs, Colorado, with no debt. Best of all: They started making a profit immediately. Great Storm Brewing opened in March 2012 with a 1-BBL system. Lynn and Jeff worked hard at first. But after 6 months they hired the first employee. The success has been so great that they contract brew larger batches under “alternative proprietorship” to help meet demand. Now approaching their third anniversary, Great Storm Brewing has 8 employees and they’re preparing to install a 10-BBL system. Lynn’s advice to someone who wants to start a brewery: Save money Practice your brewing Create something you can duplicate on a larger scale Brewery specs: Kettle size: 1 BBL; in the process of expanding to 10-BBL. Size and quantity of fermentation tanks: 10, 1-BBL fermenters; expanding to 3, 15-BBL. Size and quantity of bright tanks: none; will get tanks with the new system. Annual brewing capacity/last year’s production: Current 260; last year 187; new system will be 390-BBL. Square footage: 3,750 sq. ft. Years in operation: 3 years (opened March 2012). “As soon as you reach one goal, you make another for yourself.” [Tweet This] Listener question: From Russ Neis: How do you adjust a recipe from 10 gallons to a 7 BBLs or more?

Rank #1: Financing a Brewery Start-Up or Expanding a Current Brewery.
So you’ve pursued your dream to launch a brewery and developed a comprehensive plan to make this a reality. Now you need funding to realize this dream. On the other hand, you may have had so much success with your brewery you are ready to expand. Where will you find the resources to make this possible?This fall/winter UVM’s Business of Craft Beer Podcasts will cover a range of possible financial approaches to financing a brewery start-up or expanding a current brewery. (Hint: we will have a 5-week short course covering this topic next summer.)We are pleased to have Scott Birkner, Senior Vice President and Rick Sayward, Vice President – of Craft Beverage Lending at United Community Bank. Scott and Rick will describe the process for working with UCB, what they look for in a proposal and criteria to meet to help get your brewery funded.Please call us with your questions at 929-477-1757, or if you are unable to attend the live podcast, send us your questions ahead of time. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Rank #2: Partnership Brewing in the Craft Beer Industry.
So you are committed to opening your own brewery but don’t have the required capital. What are your options?Partnership brewing may be a viable solution.In the early days of craft beer this was referred to as contract brewing. Yet today, this business model has evolved considerably. A number of top-ranked breweries utilize a partnership model. Instead of raising capital for a facility, brewing and packaging equipment, and many staff, this business model allows for a focus on recipe development, marketing, branding and sales – and a smaller brewery/taproom. Meanwhile, the cost of getting started or expanding to other regions of the country is considerably less that building your own brewery.Over the next few months we’ll be talking to some of the leading production breweries in this space, Brew Hub and Dorchester Brewing to mention two, along with their partner breweries. We’ll examine the benefits of this approach -- and examine the perspective of the small start-up brewery owner and how they’re able to allocate their financial and personnel resources most efficiently.The phone lines will be open and you are welcome to call in at (929) 477-1757 to join the conversation!

Episode 21 is live and we go hop picking with Piedmont Hops and Jordy/Drew from the Sycamore Brewery talking about Wet/Fresh hop beers. Jordy & Drew also discuss going from home-brewer to Pro Brewer. Piedmont Hops… Who are they and what do they do? Piedmont Hops was started as a hobby for our home brewing needs. A few plants turned into 70 plants. 70 plants turned into 700 plants of 4 different varieties. We saw a need for locally grown hops and we responded to that need. Before we knew it, we were shaping this into a business. We formed as an LLC in 2012. We started Piedmont Hops to help supply craft brewers with a quality handpicked hop. Something that most brewers in VA and NC just don’t see. Our Virginia farm is currently recognized as a “Virginia Grown” product. We are proud to be part of this organization. Buy, source and support your local farms regardless of the state. We have a strong passion for craft beer and agriculture. These two elements have formed into a term we use as “craft agriculture”. If you are a brewer and would like more information on our hops and what we do, please feel free to shoot us an email. We can set up a tour date as well if you would like to visit. We have visitors throughout the year, even in the non-growing season. Sycamore Brewing – 2161 Hawkins Street – Charlotte, NC (704) 910.3821 Jordy and Drew came in to highlight Sycamore, their awesome beer patio and by the time this episode posts, their 87th different beer they released since opening in November of 2014. Keep your ears and eyes out for their 1 year celebration and their 100th beer released in the next few weeks. We also touched on Home-brew to Pro Brew with Drew and Jordy.

Here is his winning email to us as to why he deserved the tickets. – “Guys, I saw your all for emails to win tickets previously, but honestly I figured I was “outside Charlotte” just a little to far. My reason for winning the tickets… is that I’m def out of the CLT area and would love a reason to visit again. And it would almost be a Birthday Present, since my Bday is 10/15. I am a listener up in NY state. I have a good buddy in CLT, and he introduced me to Cheers CLT, and I found you guys from there. Love the show. Anyway, I figured I would take a random chance and see if I win the tickets. Maybe I’ll make another run to CLT this year. I spent a couple days there in July on a motorcycle trip. Rode straight there from Saratoga, NY. +750 miles. Took me 14 hours down and 12.75 hours home. Got to hang out at the National White Water Center, and check out some breweries.” Homebrew Survey – http://brulosophy.com/2015/08/26/portrait-of-the-modern-homebrewer-results-from-the-general-homebrewer-survey/
