Sunday March 19 and Monday March 20
9:00 am – 6:00 pm
If you are considering opening a brewery you owe it to yourself to be as informed as possible. This intensive two-day workshop to be held at Hopshire Farm & Brewery in Freeville, NY will allow you to participate in a 7 barrel brew on the first day. The second day will be devoted to a detailed walk-through of the many licenses and approvals your brewery will need. In one place you will find a comprehensive presentation of what you will need to start your brewery.
We have a short notice on this workshop to accommodate some folks who are anxious to open. This will probably be a small class and a great time to get hands on experience and individual attention. Please let us know right away if you are interested.
