Getting started

Ready to get started? Before you begin the application process, these tips will help get you on the path to securing financing for your brewery or distillery business.

Start by asking yourself the following questions:

  • How will you use your loan?
  • What do you need to purchase or upgrade to produce your craft beverages?
  • Who do you need on your team?
  • How will you reach your target clients?

Answering these questions ahead of time will help determine how you’ll use your loan, and how much you’ll need to borrow. Examples of loan uses may include:

  • Purchasing, building or renovating a physical property
  • Buying brewing, distilling, bottling and labeling equipment, as well as equipment and technology to track, ship or store your products
  • Adding furnishings, fixtures and lighting to your tasting room or office space
  • Hiring and training your team
  • Building and marketing your brand

Next, it’s helpful, but not required, to come prepared with a business plan. A good business plan will outline how your business addresses needs in the brewing and distilling industries, information about your target market, your competitive advantages and your financials, whether actual or projected (for startups).
