It's the beginning of a new year and it is important to get your brewery prepped for a successful 2017. You may have had a few tough times in 2016 but 2017 is your year! We understand that you know your business better than any outsider, but we would like to share some tips that will make this year start out on in the right direction.
Start networking now! Keep your focus on the upcoming Spring and Summer months and set up events that will help grow your business. Big events such as beer festivals are becoming a must-go-to event for new and established breweries to get their name out there. Also, If you don't serve food or snacks, think about setting up a food truck service at your brewery to bring in more business.
Make sure your brewing equipment is running properly. If there is a minor incident causing your brewery equipment to stop working, it can be a major problem. Whether you hire out someone or know how to do so yourself, make sure all your equipment is operating up to standard. You should be carrying equipment breakdown coverage, but you still want to do everything you can to prevent a breakdown in the first place as it will save you time, money, and stress.
Focus on the growth of your brewery. Insuring breweries and making sure they are getting the right coverage is our main focus. We understand that many brewery owners have a vision of becoming the next Sierra Nevada, and we want to be there to help you along the way to make sure that vision remains possible. There are many things that you currently need to focus on but don't lose sight of growing your brewery to it's fullest potential.
Plan to make 2017 your best year yet, and if you run in to obstacles, be poised, and know you can overcome them. We're here to help with any questions you may have regarding tips on how to keep your brewery running successfully, or any insurance related questions in general. Cheers to a prosperous 2017!
