The United States of Beer: A Freewheeling History of the All-American Drink Kindle Edition

The United States Of Craft Beer: A Guide to the Best Craft Breweries Across America Kindle Edition

More Info

From the book description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

From the author of Bourbon, “the definitive history” (Sacramento Bee), comes the rollicking and revealing story of beer in America, in the spirit of Salt or Cod.

In The United States of Beer, Dane Huckelbridge, the author of Bourbon: A History of the American Spirit—a Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance bestseller—charts the surprisingly fascinating history of Americans’ relationship with their most popular alcoholic beverage. Huckelbridge shows how beer has evolved along with the country—from a local and regional product (once upon a time every American city has its own brewery and iconic beer brand) to the rise of global mega-brands like Budweiser and Miller that are synonymous with U.S. capitalism.

We learn of George Washington’s failed attempt to brew beer at Mount Vernon with molasses instead of barley, of the 19th century “Beer Barons” like Captain Frederick Pabst, Adolphus Busch, and Joseph Schlitz who revolutionized commercial brewing and built lucrative empires—and the American immigrant experience—and of the advances in brewing and bottling technology that allowed beer to flow in the saloons of the Wild West. Throughout, Huckelbridge draws connections between seemingly remote fragments of the American past, and shares his reports from the frontlines of today’s craft-brewing revolution.

Sell Beer! How to Start a Brewery from the Ground Up

Did you know you can make real money by making and selling your own beer? Do you have a passion for brewing new flavors of beer and want to make a living selling your refreshing drinks? Are you looking for a business that is always in demand? Consider starting a brewery!

Who doesn’t love to drink beer?

A startup brewery is not all about just brewing good beers. There’s lots of competition out there, and in reality, there will always be people who make good or even better beers. Planning is a very big part of your beer journey.

As a future business owner, you need to be on top of a lot of things. It’s not just your beer recipe and finances that you need to be worried about. – you also need to keep track of the regulations and laws of your state, the construction of your brewery, your equipment, your deliveries, etc.

You’ll need a plan.

You also need to have a pulse on what is going on in the market and your demographic. This is so you can adjust or tweak your plan accordingly. Throw your pride and your stubbornness out of the window. Sure, your first plan may seem great at first, but as you steadily work on it and start to figure things out, you will find that what you initially had in your head might not work at all. Building a good business plan needs a lot of research, foresight, and understanding of the market.

It’s a lot of work – trust me.

But for this book, I sat down with my wife and wrote down what we think will help you out.

Now, my wife and I haven’t always had the most business-savvy of minds, and when this all began, we were just a couple of wide-eyed newbies eager to follow our passions. Of course, while they always tell you to follow your dreams and reach for the stars and all that, life isn’t all sunshine and butterflies. Passion can only get you so far, and the cold, harsh truth of reality is that to succeed, you need an actual plan if you don’t want to end up miserable and broke.

Follow your passion!

With all that said, and after building my own micro beer brewery from the ground up, I’ve decided to share everything I know to make sure you, dear reader, don’t fall into the same traps I fell into when I was first starting out. This isn’t a how-to for brewing beer, mind you – you’d pretty much already have that down pat if you’re a real aficionado. Instead, what I’d like to do with this book is to show you the ropes and guide you through the business side of things, and no, you don’t really need a Business degree to make it out of this commercial world unscathed.

How do I start creating the brewery of my dreams? Here’s what you will learn in my book:

All About the Statistics and Numbers
What a Microbrewery is vs. a Craft Brewery
The (minimal) Basics of Beer Making
Creating the Business Plan
How to Conduct Market Research and Consumer Analysis
Finding a Location
Leasing or Buying the Equipment You’ll Need
Finances and Startup Costs
What to Consider with Financial Planning
Ways to Gain Funding
Legal Identity, Business Name, and Trademark Advice
How to File for a Brewer’s Notice in the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau
A Discussion of the Licenses You Will Need
Insurance Advice
Real Life Marketing Strategies
Staffing and Boosting Morale
This book isn’t a business course textbook. I want to show you from a real-world example how you can start, run, and grow a successful brewery that you can be proud of. It won’t happen overnight, but with careful planning and the help of this book, you can make it happen!
