Brian Koch is the owner of North Portland’s Lombard House pub, and like many others he is grappling with a pandemic, a pivot to delivery, and worldwide protests of an unjust system that have implications far more important than beer and bars.
Certified public accountant Maria Pearman has penned the Small Brewery Finance book for owners and entrepreneurs looking to compete with the over 7,000 U.S. breweries in operation and nearly 2,000 more in the planning stage.
More from the Brewers Publications release on the new publication:
Small Brewery Finance offers a framework for interpreting financial reports, building budgets and creating pro-forma financial statements for launching a brewery, purchasing additional equipment, or scouting a new location. Pearman simplifies the accounting processes needed at each stage of brewery development through expert tips, practical applications, templates and reference materials.
“Your brewery is more than a small business – it’s a fulfillment of your dream to share a love for quality craft beer and beverages,” said Pearman, Principal at Perkins & Co. in Portland, OR. “Small Brewery Finance helps elevate that dream by providing the necessary tools for economic success.”
Pearman will tour to promote the book and is available to speak with groups in the brewing community.
