Crafting the perfect beer is heavenly, but a brewery is a complex beast. There’s a constant linger of questions: How should we price? Will a lower ABV% craft beer sell faster? What percentage of the batch should we keg vs bottle vs can? Should we accept the trendy pubs dictating our prices? Should we collaborate with other breweries? Why do I pay Excise? Did we make any money? All of this can distract from creating the perfect brew which is why you started this venture…right? Our role is to create an accounting system that will help you ‘see the future’ and reduce your headaches for an agreed monthly fee your brewery can scale with.
As your brewery gains traction, there will be expansion hurdles to overcome. You may be contemplating whether to lease more equipment, rent a larger facility or fitout another site. Should you finance from cashflow, seek investment or approach the bank? Windows of opportunity are short, you want to be able to rationalise decisions based on up-to-date data and pick the most commercially viable option for your brewery to scale. Working with us you’ll be able to generate forecasts, contrast the alternative scenarios and continue to see the future. The outlay for a brewery is substantial and unless you’ve been on the Pro Surfing Tour for the last 10 years you’ll want to make sure you are well-prepared and funded as you progress through the growth phase.
