The wine industry has a saying: it takes a lot of beer to make good wine. When it comes to spirits, there is actual truth in the saying. Distilling and brewing share a common production core, one that is synergistic in ways that are less applicable to wine. The commonality has intrigued many brewers and the industry has seen many beer and spirit operations open around the country. There are some hurdles to the process, unsurprising in the world of beverage alcohol, but the potential for expanding markets beyond beer are worth exploring.

The wedding was mid-day, held outside, the sun was blaring, and I had a long drive home ahead of me. While those staying locally enjoyed round after round of craft lager and IPA, I sipped my Victory Pils before switching over to review the thoughtful non-alcoholic options available to guests. Among the sodas and sparkling seltzers, one option caught my eye and captured my attention for the next few hours: Lagunitas’ Hoppy Refresher.
There is a good amount of good coffee that goes into making excellent pints of beer. With early mash-in times, long hours, late nights, and then another early morning brewers are often looking for a caffeine boost.
Discerning brewers care about their coffee and over the last decade a number of breweries have added coffee roasters to their business. This has helped some open the doors to a taproom earlier to catch morning commuters or have created a robust membership bean business. Others have seen success with their coffee brands that it was spun out into a separate company.
There was a time when a brewery that just made beer was enough. As the industry has evolved, matured, and consumers have become accustomed to choice, companies have adapted to creating diversity in their portfolios.
As breweries grow, or look to grow, it’s not enough to just have a broad spectrum of beer styles on offer. To capture the interest and tastebuds of drinkers having a variety of products that appeal to lifestyles, interests, and preferences can help a bottom-line grow.
