Selection of Placement for Your Brewery

It is obviously that placement is obligatory in order to open brewery in the restaurant as well as in industrial applications. There are several things that need to be taken into account when looking for a place or a building for your brewery, including:

Profitable location – proximity to potential customers and clients;
Availability of parking and access to supplies;
The amount of rent that you are able to pay, and whether it includes utilities;
The amount you are willing to pay for the repair of the premises (if necessary);
If the location is in the countryside, then whether there is the necessary infrastructure (i.e. water, sewerage, etc.)

For the placement of the brewery you will need a room size at least 13 sq.m. Also, the available space should be divided into separate areas: production room, area for the storage of raw materials and finished products. Electricity, sewerage and water system are necessary things for the placement. You also need to be tested by relevant authorities. You will need to get a permit for the activity of the health and fire services and housing department. You will need to sign a rental contract with the owner if you decide to rent rather than purchase or construct the premises for the brewery. Before signing the documents make sure that your legal worker explained you all the details to understand the obligations to which you agree. You must be extremely careful when renting commercial area. Consult with an appropriate specialist if you decide to purchase the building land. Here are some requirements and recommendations that should be taken into account in the selection of the building:

Water

Water supply will be needed throughout the territory of the brewery after a filling in kegs will be carried out;
