How to successfully open your own microbrewery

In this video (Part 2 of the mini series), 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. With a lot of his own sweat equity (in installing and rebuilding the space) Scott was able to open his 30BBL brewery for under $200k. Based on projections from the first two months since opening, Scott's return on investment (ROI) will be in under 6 months!! Here's how he did it. (And there's tips along the way for brewers of every size.)
