My First Step toward my Brew Pub
It’s no big secret that I want to have my own brewpub. I’ve been dreaming of it for years and have mentioned it at least a dozen times on Simply Beer. Today I took my first step in that direction; I mailed my application for Intensive Brewing Science & Engineering School at the American Brewers Guild.
I have a road map and timeline in my head of what I want to accomplish. I’m pretty sure it is not the same for everyone, but there are many things I have to plan for, first and foremost is my family. So, this first step was not easy for me. While I still need to be accepted, it has now set in motion what will be a series of events that (I hope) will change my life. The hardest part about this application was the Essays. While on the surface they seem to be very straightforward and simply questions, It took me several weeks to actually get all my thoughts into a polished format. I basically considered this as important, if not more so then my college admission essays I wrote 18 years ago. This is a big deal for me and I’m not taking anything lightly; this is very important to me.
