Oregon State University hosted a Craft Brewery Startup Workshop in Portland, Oregon from May 10-13, 2014. This workshop focused on moving forward with brewery logistics including beer brewing equipment needs and planning for brewery supplies, sourcing, legalities, distribution and marketing strategies for a small business. Instructors will give one-on-one feedback for your developed craft brewery business plan and leave you with a functional strategy for opening a business and operating your craft brewery.
I led the section on the regulatory and legal aspects of starting and operating a craft brewery and enjoyed the enthusiasm and energy of the attendees. Very exciting to share my knowledge with the next generation of craft brewers.
