Maximize Your Taproom 
Learn how to max out your space, set the perfect price, and increase revenue by up to 50%
It’s easy to look at the scale that the most successful craft breweries have achieved and think to yourself…
“If only we could just _____"

Afford to expand outside of our region.

Figure out how to scale up production.

Land that big juicy distribution account we’ve been chasing.
If that’s what you’re dreaming about, I don’t blame you.

But to do that at this stage is to miss the biggest opportunity you have for creating healthy margins, loyal customers, and consistent month-over-month revenue growth.

And it just happens to be right inside your own front door.

I am, of course, talking about your Taproom… and there are some (very) important reasons why.
For every $100 you spend in COGS and Labor...
You can generate approximately:
$120 profit from distribution
Or...
$720 profit from your taproom
Ahh, I can hear the "Yes, but's" from here.
  • Yes, but we can't sell at those prices in our area.
  • Yes, but we don't do enough volume to support our capacity.
  • Yes, but there's a limit to how much you can sell out of your taproom, and no limit to distribution.
Put the skepticism aside for a moment and ask yourself:

If you could sell more out of your taproom, at higher prices, would you?
The truth is, most breweries aren't even close to maxing out their Taproom's potential.
That means that figuring out how to drive traffic, raise your prices, and sell more out of your taproom is the SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT thing you can do right now to take your brewery to the next level.
  •  The margins can be astronomical (without scaring off your customers)
  •  The feedback on your beer is immediate, constructive, and unfiltered, coming directly from the people most likely to purchase your product in the first place
  •  Your business isn't at risk of being tossed aside at a moment's notice from distributors who have their pick of other breweries, begging for the business at race-to-the-bottom prices
Get this one thing right, and you're well on your way to building a massive success.

And besides, high margin business is GOOD business.
Hi, I'm Chris.
Over the past 9 years, my firm and I have worked with craft breweries all across the U.S, and have helped them achieve significant bottom line improvements, while streamlining their operations.

And in doing so we’ve identified, refined, and tested a repeatable set of strategies, tools, and processes that work regardless whether you’re brewing deep dark stouts, wacky IPAs, or crisp traditional pilsners.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will Brewery Business Blueprint work for my brewery?
If you’re taproom is packed 6 nights a week, every bit of merchandise and inventory can be accounted for at a moments notice, your back office is already paperless, and your sales team crushes their targets each month, this program probably isn’t for you.

But if you want to increase your sales, streamline your operations, and grow your brewery this is for you.

The principles, processes, and best practices we share in the BBB course are based on the collective experience we’ve had working with breweries across the U.S. making significant improvements to their bottom line earnings. They’ve worked for them, and they can work for you. 
Right now we’re focused on wholesale expansion. Does this course cover how to handle that?
Maximize Your Taproom won't cover wholesale. In our experience, we’ve found that getting these in-house fundamentals down first ensures that growth and expansion can proceed smoothly. 

However, if you enroll in the BBB Complete Subscription you'll also get access to Scale Your Sales Team, which covers exactly how to expand your distribution territor and increase your out-of-house sales.
How much time will this take each week?
Although the course video content is concise and to-the-point, the real meat is in the application of the material to your brewery.

Plan on reserving 3-5 hours per week to review the course material and implement the action steps and new processes with your team each week.
How long do I have access to the course?
Your registration comes lifetime access to the course material. You can login anytime, anywhere you have an internet connection.

Our recommendation is to revisit this material monthly to both stay on track, and open up additional profit-boosting opportunities you may not have taken advantage of the first time around.
What if I sign up but don’t have time to follow through?
You’ve got a brewery to run, and that comes first. So if you get into a time crunch, no problem. 

Because you can access the material at any time, you can just press pause, and then pick back up again when you have a bit more time in the schedule.
