How to Start a Beer Company

How to start a beer company maybe considered a not so easy business but do not despair since this is one business that never runs out of clients.

Brewery business is one of the most successful businesses there is. People love to drink beer with no gender prejudice so this is definitely a sure hit business.

Here are tips on how to start your own beer company.

Develop a Business Plan

If you plan to start a beer company what you actually have to do first is to develop a business plan. You can actually create your own business plan. There are ready available templates available in the market today which are user friendly but since you are opening a beer company it is wise that you hire a professional business plan maker. You might have the need to apply for a business loan hence you will be required to present a copy of your business plan.

Get A Location

Since you are planning on starting a beer company it is advisable that you get a location suitable for the business. You can lease a building or you can construct one specifically designed for your business. This would mean though that you have to purchase a parcel of land or lease them. Either way, you have to choose a location wherein you are most accessible to the public. Do not be mistaken though that beer companies are just limited to those who has large capitals. Beer companies can be started as a home based business as well. It is better to start small and expand as soon as business is picking up.

Equipments and Supplies

You will have to invest in equipments for brewing since you will start a beer company. There are several equipments that you need to provide in making beers like: kegs, fermenter/s, brewers, beer kit, beer bottles and caps, hydrometer, siphon tube, sterilizing solutions, malted barley, water, yeast, hops, flavorings, sugar starch, etc. You have to make sure that you just purchase what you need but stock ingredients so that you will continue operation and have ample supplies of your products.

Employees and Staffs

It is advisable that you hire employees and staffs who has the knowledge in beer manufacturing. It will take fewer hours to train and orient them with the processes and techniques since they already have the basic knowledge of the business. Make sure there are people assigned in the administrative and marketing side of your business other than those assigned in the operation. It is advisable that you treat your employees and staffs like family to avoid theft and dishonesty amongst them. You can also involve family member as part of employees and staffs. This is another way that somebody trusted is left behind to look after your business in cases that you are not able to do so.

  • James expert adviser said on April 8, 2012
    @vijayakumar,

    1. 7-10 Crores needed to start a beer company.
    2. There isn't a single license for a beer company. There are tons of clearance and licenses are required. Hire a consultant to help you.
    3. 10-15 acres of land needed.
    4. It is possible to get a loan but heavily depends on the collateral that you provide.
