If you dream of opening a brewery, the best piece of advice that I can give is that nobody cares as much about your business as you do. Do extensive research on everything, and be prepared to make an educated argument to defend yourself. Also, write an amazing business plan. Make it informative, educational, and interesting. This can be your greatest tool for raising money. Don’t be afraid to reach out to ask brewers for advice on any topic.
