Brewpub Playbook Summary

Holden Robert Associates builds breweries and brewpubs, but we do much more. We give our clients the fastest, most cost efficient path from initial concept to brewing beer. Our  Brewpub Playbook is a unique approach to streamlining that process. In short every new brewery has to “reinvent the wheel” and learn the entire process for themselves. We have consolidated all the best practices, processes, sequences, suppliers, and professionals, to create the system that gets you from an IDEA to OPEN on the most efficient path. HRA builds dreams, our team makes it happen. Ask us how we can help you realize your dream!


Phase 1; Brewery and Brewpub
Preconstruction Scope of Work:

This preconstruction scope is the work required to guide a project from concept to the submittal of construction permit applications. It represents the most cost and time efficient manner to bring a project from inception to the construction phase. This method typically assumes the use of the “cost- plus” construction contract method with an “open book” accounting format.  The scope of work varies based on the specific project requirements and parameters and may include some, all, or more of the following:
