Yankee, sounds to me like you have a vision, go for it man. There is certainly nothing wrong with a vision and the hard work behind it, and with that usually comes success. Good Luck. I to, do Sanitary Stainless Tig Welding....hint, hint....lol

I lucked out, I had no interests in school(besides tang). Mom brought me to voc-tech school. I've been a machinist foe 18 yrs and love it. Also picked up welding and fabrication along the way. Working at a shipyard for mega-yachts. It's a nice gig, but this would have been a better story if it ended in my becoming a porn star.

Lot of welders out here... You guys should all team up and form a new welding company by the sea, "The Swellders".

Swellders, love it. Yankee, you're spot-on regarding Europe's lack of beer diversity. This is true throughout Europe except for Germany and Belgium. They do pretty well...a huge number of styles originated in those two countries, and most towns still have their own brewery just like the good ole days. Haven't been, but heard it's a fun trip.
That's great that you have a place to setup shop already. My house is zoned res / commercial so I can brew & distribute on a small scale right from home. My plan is to start while keeping my day job. Build the brand first. It could be tricky, but it's definitely the lowest risk. Would you be the brewer?

What could possibly go wrong...? lol
I like your idea of phasing your plan in. Lower the risk while pursuing your passion; then, the big day comes when you have to decide do you chuck it & go for the sudsy future...?
Life should be risky, IMHO, and too often it's mundane; maybe that's one reason we all love surfing.
