Craft Brewery Startup Workshop

IMPORTANT NOTICE: This program is traditionally a face-to-face classroom training program, but the Fall 2020 Semester section will be held online as we prioritize distance learning in response to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Join UNH Professional Development & Training for a multi-day workshop designed to teach you the ins and outs of starting your own craft brewery. This workshop is designed for working professionals who benefit from a flexible format. Workshop sessions will be lead by craft brewery owners and industry professionals who will share their stories and provide insights into the inner workings of their business. Attendees from previous years will also share valuable tips about their startup experiences. Each day will take you deeper into the process as you gather helpful information about funding, brewing logistics, marketing, supplies, ingredients, quality, legal issues, distribution and strategic planning. You’ll leave the workshop with a personalized business plan, new industry contacts, good memories and a better understanding of what it takes to enter the nano/craft brewing market.
