FOODSERVICE OPPORTUNITIES FOR BREWERIES DELIGHT WITH BEER, IMPRESS WITH FOOD:
The number of brands currently available through large beer distribution is staggering. Retail outlets and restaurants are only capable of offering so many different styles of beer products on a consistent basis, making competition fierce among national beer distribution. With more than 7000 craft breweries currently operating in the United States, the craft brewery business model is seeing a shift away from national distribution and toward a more geographically localized focus.
However, like so many other start-up businesses, breweries are often limited based on a variety of budget constraints due to the expenses associated with the equipment needed to create and sell their product. It can be difficult to sell to a broader spectrum of consumers in the marketplace. It’s even more difficult to make a profit. Just one more reason why so many breweries are opting to better position themselves locally while focusing on building out their craft and their brand. As such, it has become a more profitable option for breweries to run an establishment that, similar to the brewpub business model, offers their customers not only a great sampling of craft beer, but a variety of food options as well.
