The outpouring of support when I announced yesterday that we will be working to open a brewery was overwhelming. This is a momentous decision with much hard work and uncertainty ahead. Every scrap of support is making it all a bit less daunting. Thank you.

The startup seminar by @GrowandFortify last night was a good warmup and many pointers at the local level I will be following up on for our brewery. This afternoon, we fly to Burlington for a brewery startup bootcamp and NanoCon organized by @BrewYourOwn.

I am happy simply to have so many local breweries now compared to when MD adopted me over 20 years ago. That MD brewers support each other and their communities makes me so proud.

Idea of launching a brewery has so invaded my brain that stopping in at a new brewery or pub feels like research too.
