I worked for nearly 5 years in arguably the country's most successful BOP IncrediBREW(Nashua,NH) which has been open for 10.5 years under the original ownership. IncrediBREW is the 2nd oldest BOP in the country behind one in Boulder but the oldest one with the original owner. Dave Williams, the owner has consulted on many startups as well as theorectical startups(which most become after they learn the inside of the business.) Email Dave he's usually happy to help out and if you're seriously interested, then fly out here and see how it's done. I might be biased, btu I have visted several other BOPS and I have never seen one run in such a great manner as Dave runs his.
