Hi folks

I am new to the community and interested in the business side of brewing more than the actual brewing process itself although I am trying to learn both. I would like to own a brewery of my own and wanted to ask your thoughts on getting started. What kind of startup costs are associated? Contract out the brewing or do it on site? Is there a sample business plan out there to look at? Start from scratch or purchase an existing brewery? I'd really appreciate your opinions on getting started.

Thank you.
