Microbrewery Restaurant, I’m looking into starting one. Nothing may ever come of the idea, but still I am seriously looking into it.
N.W. AR. area just south of S.W. MO. area somewhere. I have not decided for certain where I would want to locate it.
Problem with AR. is too many dry counties and all the best locations I can get reasonable for a restaurant are in dry counties :oops:
Now I’ll have to look at other areas for locations.
The advantage of going with a brew pub instead of just a restaurant alone is I can buy beer wholesale and resale it retail as well as what I’d brew on site. I could sell wholesale my own brews to retail stores, and retail on site for on premise use or to take home also.
The extra cost is not so bad for the licensing that I have found so far, course all the equipment needed to brew will be a big expense and headache.
I’ve thought of opening a small restaurant for awhile anyway.
Anyone around AR. probably just south of Branson, MO. know of some decent cheap locations I could check out?
At this time I am kinda thinking of around Eureka Springs, AR. or Mountain Home, AR. areas to look in.
Also if anyone reasonably close would like to help out or have extra beer stuff like kegs or brew pots etc… to loan or sell if I do this maybe we could work something out.
I don’t plan to do anything until at least Jan. 2013 or later other than look for locations and research all the requirements a bit more. If I do this I’d like to be open about mid March 2013.
Of course this is all dependent on rather or not the world ends Dec 21 2012 at end of the Mayan calender LOL
