Do you love the taste of beer? Do you want to turn your passion for drinking beer into a business that will allow you to quit your job? If you answered yes to any of these then opening a brewing company is for you. Starting a business can be a very tough task however when you are able to start a business that is tied to your passion, it makes the journey a whole lot better. Starting out you are going to need several items such as an airlock, boiling pot, bottle capper and much more.

The biggest area of focus for you when starting out is getting the word out. You need to create demand for your beer. By creating demand, you need to identify or create reasons as to why your beer is better or different than the rest. Maybe it’s the way you brew the beer or some elaborate formula or process you use.  The lifeline of a business is new customers and if you don’t have them coming in then you will be out of business real quick.

Where Can I Get Brewing Equipment?

You can get brewing equipment for easily at your local hardware store for under $100. Once you have established your business, I suggest you upgrade to high quality and high capacity equipment. You can get products for a deep discount by going directly to factories in china. You will need to import the products to make sure you get them safely across the border and passed through customs. Importing is a whole other topic and I suggest you google how to start an import business to get an idea of how to go about bringing product overseas.

If you want to make some extra money on the side then I suggest you look into selling some used equipment on ebay. Ebay is a great place to find new and used items at a deep discount. Don’t get overly concerned with what to sell on ebay to make money as there are many brewery types of equipment that you can easily sell on the side.
