Welcome to the New Brewery Business Planning Forums!
Welcome to the new forums we just launched here at BreweryBusinessPlan.com. It is my hope that the forums will become a valuable and informative resource for people within the craft beer industry to interact and exchange ideas, discuss industry news and topics, and learn from one another in an enjoyable and welcoming environment.
As for introductions, my name is Jeff Lever and I'm the founder of BreweryBusinessPlan.com. I have been in the consulting business for a number of years, and my prior business experience includes 20+ years in sales, marketing, I.T., graphic design, web design, internet security, managerial, warehousing, and communications. I've started, owned, and partnered in numerous businesses in various fields. My printed works have helped start dozens of new businesses and breweries in countries around the world. I'm an avid homebrewer and winemaker that loves rethinking various control practices by tinkering in various software, hardware, and microcontroller based systems.
I've been married for almost 9 years to my charming wife Adriana, and we have two incredible boys - Noah (3) and Eli (1). For more than a decade now, I've been involved in either the homebrew or commercial brewing scene that I've come to have a real love for. The people, the technology, the smell of a fresh mash, the culture of craft beer, and - most importantly - my family, are what motivate me to continue to test, try, improve, rethink, and reinvent the products and services. Once again, welcome to BreweryBusinessPlan.com!
