Why craft breweries fail

Why craft breweries fail

In recent years, the craft beer market has exposed the weaknesses of otherwise successful breweries amid a combination of increased competition, slowing growth, and other market forces. Correcting these weaknesses early on can help you avoid falling victim to the craft beer market.
According to the Craft Brewers Association, the number one reason breweries fail is lack of funding. When deciding to start your own beer business, effectively managing the start-up costs of your brewery is critical to your success. Craft breweries are rapidly increasing the cost of everything from brewery equipment to construction expenses, permits, and insurance premiums.
5 Reasons Craft Breweries Fail

Market growth slows down and competition intensifies

The craft beer industry is one of the most competitive industries in the food and beverage sector. According to USA Today, there were more than 7,000 breweries of different types operating in the United States in 2018 alone. While there are breweries that don’t survive each year, the growth in the number of breweries is far greater than the number of breweries that close. In 2020, the number of breweries in the United States has reached more than 8,800. Because the craft beer market is more competitive than ever, it is important to have a complete business budget and a corresponding business plan. Only in this case can the start-up costs of your brewery be kept at the most suitable level.
As the craft beer market matures and changes, this could be a real stress test for some breweries that are underfunded, overextended, or have no infrastructure and resources. As a brewery owner, it is your responsibility to keep an eye on the competition to better finish and capitalize on what makes your brewery unique.
Jack Hendler is the founder and co-owner of Jack’s Abby Craft Lagers in Framingham, Massachusetts. This brewery is one of the fastest-growing breweries in the nation. While the brewery has maintained strong growth and near-continuous expansion since its inception in 2011, Jack Hendler understands the importance of operating with sound business mechanisms that prevent overexpansion in a competitive environment. So his brewery will continue to be a steady success.
Financially, you must factor every factor (from legal fees to social media advertising costs, equipment costs, etc.) into your overall brewery startup cost budget. It will help keep your new business on the right track.

Tips for successfully operating a brewery

The decision to switch from brewing beer by hobbyists to operating a commercial brewery was very important. The craft beer market is booming, with more people entering the craft beer industry than ever before. According to the Brewers Association’s 2018 industry report, the number of US breweries in 2018 increased by 17% compared to 2017.

Blind expansion of some breweries

No one can control what happens to craft beer on a macro level, but brewery owners can organize their brewery operations and make the right decisions to help them maximize their success and be able to make effective adjustments when needed. Every brewery is unique, but several common potential issues need careful consideration: borrowing too much money or overextending investor equity, expanding the brewery too quickly, beer quality issues, poor management. Brewery owners need to leave a lot of wiggle room to deal with the unexpected.
When a smaller brewery is operating on a razor-thin profit and investing the profits in growth and expansion, there is usually no room for mistakes or surprises. If you’re going to spend a large portion of your brewery, for example, buying new equipment (such as a canning line) to increase production and expand distribution, then you’ll need to evaluate the matter and explore the feasibility of the project. If the evaluation of the expansion project is feasible, then congratulations you have gained more competitiveness. If the evaluation of the expansion project is not very good, you might as well abandon the idea.

Lack of brand voice and recognition

In addition to this aspect of brewery competition, a solid brand voice and strong brand recognition also play a very important role in the success of the new beer business. Your brewery start-up costs may well match your goals and your plans, but you also need craft beer lovers to take an interest in your brewpub and buy your product multiple times. This is a very important aspect.
In a differentiated market, breweries and markets cannot be judged solely based on good and bad. It is increasingly important that breweries put time, thought and energy into the brands they are building. As a brewery owner, you need a deep understanding of your brewery’s brand values and mission that will set you apart from other new brewery businesses and put you on the cutting edge. A good brewery brand story coupled with achievable brewery start-up costs will allow the brewery to succeed and stand out from the growing competition that follows.
brewery business plan

No business plan and no more budget

Honestly, no matter what business you start, no business plan means no organization. Without more project budgets to build your business, no organization can lead to a complete lack of control over a project. Failure to fund your overall brewery start-up will bring production to a halt and set your new business back.
The craft beer industry is a capital-intensive industry. A detailed business plan will help you plan your brewery start-up costs and align your expectations for the brewery with what you can afford. Additionally, having the right business plan for your craft beer business will help you understand how your brewery can turn profitable.
Brewery owners who spend too much time on trivial things ultimately fail. You can take the time to consult a financial professional or get advice from fellow winemakers you know to ensure your business plan is realistic and professional. A foolproof business plan can give you manageable brewery start-up costs and excellent new business planning. It is advisable to check your budget before planning your brewery chores and spend as much money as possible on the necessities of your first year of operation.

The impact of the pandemic on craft breweries

Globally, the impact of COVID-19 on the alcoholic beverage industry since mid-March 2020 has been dramatic. From internal shutdowns to supply chain challenges, the beer market is undergoing major changes. Almost all of the growth in the beer market has gone to macro producers, not craft brewers, especially those from macro brewers in bulk.
While this information isn’t great news for craft breweries, it does make sense. In an age where people tend to stock up to avoid regular grocery shopping, it makes sense to buy the largest possible pack of beer. And ideally, shoppers know they’ll love the beer.
Thankfully, some experts don’t think the pandemic will dent the world’s long-term demand for craft beer. Because of the increased competition, some of the breweries that closed recently could have closed in three to five years even without the pandemic, which has shortened their timelines.

The future of the craft beer industry

Market analysts such as IWSR predict that the craft beer industry will return to a “healthy” pattern within two years, and will recover lost sales in the next few years. But critical to the continued health of the craft beer industry is the diversification of brewers’ revenue streams. While we shouldn’t doubt that taproom and draft-focused business models will prevail in the future, packaged beer and well-established wholesaler relationships will likely be key when it comes to growing the business, scaling up production, and gaining multi-channel distribution.
