To speak bluntly, we wanted to contract brew long enough to learn what production volume might be possible for Colsons. That would help us buy the correct size equipment and the right sized building. We wanted to learn profit margins and how to manage the supply chain through our distributors and what retailers expected from us. We wanted to wait until the legal environment improved so that breweries could sell more beer on-site and possibly survived. Thankfully the law changed in 2021.
So it has been a long and slow 4 years and now the time has come. We are working on being able to brew Colsons in Jackson metro and hopefully it won’t be too much longer.
