Self-distributing your own beer can be a great way to learn about the retail market, train your people, and maintain 100% focus on your brand.
Self-distribution can also create financial rewards in the form of increased margin dollars and profits for your brewery.
There are many positives to self-distribution, but also many pitfalls to watch out for. One such pitfall is cash flow. Self-distribution sucks up a lot of cash and often in areas you wouldn’t expect.
To help you plan cash flows – and avoid the pitfalls – we’ve put together an online course for self-distributing breweries.
