    Thanks for sharing! My brother is an incredible brewer, and my family has played around with the idea of taking his awesome beers to the next level. Our biggest fears are that we either need to be all in and make a HUGE investment in a facility that could legally produce beer, or commit to moonlighting to get this off the ground (and renting from friends' breweries). Eager to share this interview with my family as more encouragement!

      Thanks so much, I'm glad you liked it. Steve mentioned that when he was starting out he rented time at another brewery and used their equipment to brew some of Beau's first batches. Depending on your area maybe your brother could look into brewing his own stuff at another brewery and then he would have a product to bring people to try to secure distributions or loans. I hope it helps.

        Great idea! I know he's been talking to a few brewery friends recently, now it's just a matter of taking the leap and trying a few brews out!! Thanks!
