Location – We liked a location at 1470 New State Highway. It’s the plaza where the Little Gym was located. Royal Pizza, Dunkin Donuts, and a Chinese restaurant are currently located in the plaza. Hopefully people would be able to bring their food into the brewery.
Town – We met with the Town and they were very helpful. It doesn’t look like there will be a big problem starting a brewery in Raynham. There will be a lot of paperwork and waiting.
Equipment – After getting many quotes on Kinnek we decided to go with American Beer Equipment. They have small systems like the one we want, and they also do very large custom system. At this point we are trying to get a 10 bbl system.
Timeline – We have to do a business plan to get a loan. We are going to read two books on business plans and try to get one done by the end of October. Once we get financing, we can move forward with the location, licensing, and ordering equipment.
Beer – It looks like we will be leaning towards producing more ales and a few IPA’s.
