I have always had a love for beer. From the first moment I took a zip from a Budweiser that my dad had in the fridge, I knew I wanted to know more about the different type of beers and how they were made. Beer has been around for years and most people either like beer or they don’t. Everyone has their preference. Some people only like mix drinks, others only like wine and some even like drinking straight hard liquor straight or on ice.
The majority of beers that you see in the stores are either ales or lagers. They are originally from England and Europe and are made using a fungus that grows at room temperature. Now with how easy it is to brew beer at home, there has been a large amount of local brewing companies popping up out of no where. If making beer is your passion then I would highly recommend you look into either creating your own beer for yourself of creating a brand.
If you decide to create your own brand then there are many things that you need to keep in mind. You need to figure out the type of packaging and branding and where to get it from. If you are looking for a cost effective brand and or logo creation, I recommend fiverr. They are a great resource to have tasks completed for as little as $5. They have gigs that you can purchase on pretty much anything you can think of. If you also need to hire a virtual assistant then you can hire one there for dirt cheap.
Another thing is to figure out why you want to start a brewing company? Is it a passion or would you like to someday leave your job and work on it full time? In the beginning you most likely will be doing it part time however as business picks up you need to make a decision to either pursue it full time or quit. Starting a business isn’t for everyone and there will be a ton of instances where you want to give up however your passion and reasons why will keep you on your path. There will be many road blocks along your way however you need to understand that these are all part of the process and without them you will not see the true value of success.
I have seen many people start a business and give up at the first sign of trouble. There is always going to be something going on that may not be your ideal situation however you must learn to understand that it is all merely part of the process.
If you truly want to start a brewing company then I suggest you look to other entrepreneurs who have been successful in the past for guidance.
