Hey all, please read my profiles of several aspiring local brewing companies in this week's Austin Chronicle. It hit the newstands just today.
I was floored by how many people in the Austin area are in various stages of entering the business, ranging from those ready to send their products to market down to those with just a mere business plan, so I decided to write a round-up of as many of them as I can find.
If all are successful (a long shot, I admit), Austin's brewing industry would just about double in size. Can the Austin market accomodate that kind of expansion? All the new brewers seem to think so — see this sidebar where I ask that very question.
If I missed any that you know about, please let me know. (Pictured: Chris Orf, Orf Brewing, picture copyright Lee Nichols.)
