The brewery that just opened in my hometown doesn't have any of its own beer and is selling growlers that they can't fill.
This is me predicting their huge success.
Someone needs to tell them that opening early doesn't hold a candle to opening prepared to do business.
They're merch and social media blitzing hard on their catering, restaurant, and entertainment aspects. It seems to be working for them so far, but I can't bring myself to support, even a local business, that has Brewery in its name that doesn't sell its own beer. And that sells empty growlers. And that hires a musician who's pretty well known in the area for going on drunken racist facebook tirades.
My current 5 year plan is to save up and buy their equipment on auction when they go out of business.
