This 4-week, fully online Business of Craft Beer short course will explore the various operating models of breweries that currently exist or have evolved into relevance. Topics will include the legal and monetary obligations of each at the startup phase, typical cash inflows and outflows, sample financial statement design for each model, and tax obligations.

Each week’s lesson will be enhanced by a slate of guest speakers for your questions, including brewery-focused attorneys, bankers, and brewery owners and operators. The main objective of this class is to present all the operating options for your startup brewery to allow you to choose the model that will fit your concept and needs best.
