Feasibility Studies

A well-thought-out, comprehensive business plan can take months to complete. Over 400 man hours have gone into developing our brewery business plan – a figure that continues to grow!

With such a significant time investment, completing a feasibility study should be your first step. While the business plan will seek to answer the question, “How will we start and run our brewery?” The feasibility study first begs the question, “What is our likelihood of starting a successful brewery?”

Our Vision

"Most entrepreneurial ideas will sound crazy, stupid and uneconomical, and then they'll turn out to be right. " - Reed Hastings
Stop Dreaming. Start Planning. (BBP) has arguably helped start more craft breweries than any other company in both the US and abroad. Averaging better than one new brewery every 4 weeks, our company is driven by our vision and defined by our attitude.

Mark Twain put it best when he said,
"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Here at, we seek to enable the entrepreneurial spirit, bind that spirit with a passion for producing great beer, and help our clients achieve their dreams of opening a brewery. Our strategies, advice, and techniques have been utilized and tested by dozens of breweries around the world presently in operation. When you partner with, you're partnering with one of the most passionate, proven, and experienced consultancies in the craft brewing industry.

  • Market tested and battle hardened, our proprietary methods paint a Rembrandt of everything from up-to-the-day consumer activity trends , competitor growth analysis, and complete review of economic and demographic data - all at the local level.
