mechgreg: With the number of breweries out there, and the number growing all the time, I wonder why anyone would bother unless you could make world class beer, or have a killer gimmick, or can serve a local population with out any local competition. Because otherwise you are just one more in a sea of hundreds of brewers. I mean a few new breweries have opened up near me and while they are good, it seems crazy to me to risk your savings and work you ass off for something that is just good. To me it seems that if you can't be great (I am thinking like Hill Farmstead or Founders or Dieu du Ciel) at this point why would you bother? Maybe 10 years ago that would have worked (and you could build a brand) but now I am not sure I see a point.

Your post could apply to any new restaurant, or any new business really.  Some people just want to have their own thing they offer to others.

I own a small business (we do productions for still photo shoots, mostly commercial and advertising).  When I started 10 years ago, there were plenty of others doing the same thing.  But I thought I could offer some fresh perspectives on things, and so I worked and worked and worked and built a network and a lot of other things, and today it's highly profitable.

I left software engineering because I was tired of cube life and working for someone else on projects I didn't give a shiat about.  If it didn't work out, what did I lose?  Some time?  Some money?  So what?

These folks have a good family and friend network around them.  Even if it doesn't work out, they'll have gained a ton of experience in business management which is helpful in so many other parts of life.  It's not like they're going to end up under a bridge because they chased their dream.

Quiet, you. There's nothing wrong with more variety. Although it's a slim chance, they may actually end up making something amazing. As long as it isn't another IPA.


We are reaching a point where some areas are craft beer saturated. Eventually market forces are going to come into play and level the field.

/The same applies with all these cupcake bakeries that keep popping up.

I hope it's an incredibly hop filled IPA.

I have been praying that some brewery out there is EXTREME enough to make a super-hopped IPA. Unfortunately, they just don't exist.
