More Info

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

In July of 2014, Dan, Eddie, and Govs sat at a bar talking shit about making beer. Two years later, they’d opened their own brewery on the Gold Coast in Australia called Black Hops. It’s been an epic journey, from “the little situation” in China, to a collaboration with the biggest entertainment franchise on earth, and finally—launching a brewery. Operation Brewery tells their story and gives you every last detail on how to build your own brewery on a budget.

Most brewing books focus on how to make a good beer. To start a brewery in 2016 and beyond, it’s no longer enough to make good beer. Any business is as much about planning and marketing as it is about the product you make. Operation Brewery delves into how Black Hops navigated the tricky waters of opening a brewery and also provides specific advice on a range of startup topics such as:

  • How to build and execute a brand
  • How to find a killer growth channel and stand out in your marketing
  • How to use modern web and social platforms to gather attention
  • Crowdfunding and how Black Hops became the first brewery to launch for crowdfunding in Australia
  • Various business models for operating a craft beer business
  • Raising money to build a brewery, including the exact slides to include in your pitch deck when presenting the idea
  • How to choose a core range of beers, including specific advice on setting up pilot brewing systems
  • Your location and the various considerations that go into choosing where to open

The Importance of Draught Beer Line Cleaning – from the Brewers Association + Draft Line Cleaning Build

From the Brewer’s Association:

“Clean beer lines are integral to maintaining the quality of craft beer.

Small and independent craft brewers devote a lot of time, effort and resources to make the best possible beer for consumers. Ingredients are handpicked, the latest technological advances in brewing are used and batches of beer are tested throughout the process to ensure superior quality. That hard work can be ruined in the time it takes the beer to travel from the keg to the glass if the draught system/lines have not been properly cleaned and maintained.”

  • At a minimum, you should clean your draught line every two weeks with an alkaline detergent cleaner to remove protein and films that build up quickly.
  • The cleaning chemical should be recirculated through the product line for a minimum of 15 minutes at a velocity up to two gallons/minute. Soaking product lines is not recommended, but the cleaning solution should be left in-line for at least 20 minutes if recirculation is not an option.
  • All faucets should be completely disassembled and cleaned every two weeks. Make sure to replace any damaged seals or gaskets.
  • Acid cleaning should be performed quarterly to remove inorganic compounds such as “beer stone,” which are mineral deposits.
  • All vinyl jumpers and vinyl direct draw lines should be replaced annually.
  • Couplers should be replaced based on condition. Inspect the coupler bottom seal and O-rings, to make sure they are properly lubricated with a food-grade lubricant.
  • Good quality, well-maintained couplers, faucets and shanks can last a lifetime. Parts that are 100 percent stainless steel are the most reliable and will provide the best quality experience for your staff and customers.
  • Always make sure to rinse lines with clean water after cleaning!
  • Draught lines may need to be replaced after pouring root beer, fruit or pepper-flavored beers, sour beers, margaritas or ciders in order to avoid permanent flavor influence.

Read the complete article: THE IMPORTANCE OF DRAUGHT BEER LINE CLEANING

Note that those guidelines are written from the commercial perspective, although all concepts still hold true, with a little tweaking as it makes sense to your setup.

So You Want to Start a Brewery? is the first-person account of Tony Magee’s gut-wrenching challenges and heart-warming successes in founding Lagunitas Brewing Company. In just 20 years, the company has grown from a seat-of-the-pants, one-man operation to be the fifth largest—and the fastest-growing—craft brewer in the United States. This equal part memoir, narrative, and business story is an illuminating yet hilarious account anchored strongly in time and place as a one-of-a-kind, made-in-America journey that culminates with the success of one of the nation’s most popular and enduring craft beer brands.
