January 15 - Figuring out the Finances

Today I met with our bank, Midwest Regional Bank in Festus. We discussed the impending brewing equipment deposit to lock down our production slot. We discussed the SBA process and our finances and what we need to move toward closing. Needless to say, we have some more paperwork ahead.

We met with a contractor to look at our building and get their thoughts on jacking up the floors. We're in the process of figuring out our next big step, leading toward columns and beams. Once we start supporting the interior, things should fly.

The rest of the day was spent working on budgeting, paperwork, and getting the required life insurance for the SBA loan. Tons more to do, but a lot done today.

Starting a brewery, restaurant, and bar while renovating a late 1800's building isn't all fun all the time but we assure you we're doing everything we can to surpass expectations.
