Designing, building and operating a successful brewery requires a mix of business and brewing knowledge, and the Siebel Institute is pleased to offer the first course ever specifically designed for small brewery start-up. The Siebel Institute “Start Your Own Brewery” course covers the brewpub & microbrewery design and startup issues that you need to know to get your business rolling.
This three-day course is designed and conducted by Ray Daniels and Siebel Institute brewing faculty augmented by specialists in brewery operations and business planning. Along with content that addresses brewery related issues, each day features a successful brewery entrepreneur who will share their story and answer questions from the class, bringing some of the industry’s most successful business people to our Chicago classroom.
The “Start Your Own Brewery” course presents issues that every prospective brewery owner should know to help build a successful business from the ground up while avoiding pitfalls and mistakes that can compromise the efficiency and profitability of the brewery.
