If you are an avid homebrewer, a veteran commercial brewer, or someone who falls somewhere in between, you might have considered starting your own brewery at one time or another but might not have known where or how to begin—enter, The Brew Kit.

The Brew Kit is a guide designed to help simplify an otherwise complex start-up process for breweries-in-planning and also to raise important issues for existing breweries to consider or revisit. It starts with an overall timeline, proceeds with a handy checklist, and follows with an explanation of each individual step in the process.

This issue brief examines the role of craft breweries in creating community vibrancy in New Hampshire Communities. To see the brief, click here.
