What does it take to open a brewery? With craft beer’s meteoric rise in the United States, a lot of you have asked that question — and with 5,000 breweries and counting, it is obvious that many have figured out an answer.
Barely Beer Barons, a new series premiering in early February 2017 on Amazon Prime, shows how three friends found their path to brewery ownership and the promise of fresh craft beer for their San Bernardino, California-based brewery. The show chronicles Brew Rebellion’s dream of brewing up a business, approaching the operation in their brand of unconventional, unfettered acumen. By their own accounts, “It’s ugly, but it’s all theirs.”
“We wanted to show what a true bootstrap, people oriented craft brewery start up looks like,” says Brew Rebellion co-owner Ed Parker, one of the stars of the show. “Only in America, baby.”
