How to successfully open a microbrewery Part 1: 3 Dogs Brewing

In this video, Scott, the owner of 3 Dogs Brewing Co in Metro Vancouver discusses how he converted a 1600sf space in a strip mall (a former wine shop) into a really cool and successful microbrewery using the BREWHA BIAC brewing system and fermenters. Scott was able to open his 780BBL/year brewery for under $200k and a return on investment (ROI) in under 6 months!! Here's how he did it. (And there's tips along the way for breweries of every size.)

  • Hi Vo—pricing for the equipment is on the BREWHA website. In addition to the BREWHA BIAC and BREWHA fermenters (the BIAC includes one fermenter but many commercial customers purchase additional fermenters for increased capacity) you can see what is needed on our website (use the search bar to search for ‘what else is needed’ and the links above on this page also have information). And you can also see the instruction videos and BIAC manual for details on setup on our website. And if you can’t find answers to specific questions, feel free to email us at
