Uber quick post. Last week I was approved for my small business loan which is HUGE! More investors on board (and room for a few more). Lease negotiations seem to be complete, contract being written up now. Will be ordering 20 BBL brew house, 40 BBL fermenters, 40 BBL bright tank, 40BBL hot liquor tank […]

This guy right here! Hi again! It’s been awhile. I’ve been busy as usual, and I actually got to take a family vacation to Wisconsin this past week, which was much needed. So let’s do some status updates. First and foremost, investor fundraising is going through the roof! As of yesterday Panic has 48.5% of […]

Chicago Craft Beer Week is over and what a week it was! My favorite part of the whole week was meeting new Panic fans and admirers. I’ve lost count how many people came up and thanked me (I was wearing my Panic T-shirts all week) for sharing so much and offering wonderful words of encouragement […]

Ahhh, the eternal question. Second most popular question we get after “Where is the brewery going to be located?” and “Do I have to call the police on you again?”. I’ve been blogging this journey since October 11, 2011. You would think this thing would be up and running right? I remember back when I […]

I’m juggling a lot of balls at the moment. It’s hard keeping track of so many balls. But no matter what I’m not going to get testy. Hey! Get your mind out of the gutter! Don’t start reading into those innuendos and start thinking that they’re innuendos. That’s just nuts! OK, enough of that, let’s […]

Funny how things change in just a few weeks. Two weeks ago, I couldn’t stop wearing pantyhose and now I want nothing to do with them! No wait, that’s not what changed! I mean, yes it did. No, no…oh never mind! What’s really changed is that my glacial pace, as mentioned here, has become more […]

Remember me?

Hey, what is this place? Some sort of “web log” thing it seems. I vaguely remember being here before. Hi there! It’s been over a month since I last posted! That’s dumb! So are all of these exclamation points! There’s another one! Crap. Well, we’re officially in that phase I call “Write Checks to Lawyers”. […]

I’ve been very bad about posting updates. I’m in kind of a transitional phase in this monstrous process. Finishing the business plan (which will require some additions and some modifications to the numbers) was a great feeling, but after I completed it I realized this: shit just got real. Working on my business plan seemed […]

As I move on to the next and more difficult phase of this endeavor, financing, I thought I would share some goodies I learned from the business plan phase. Here is a link to the template of my business plan. This is simply the business plan with all section and subsections and all content removed, […]
