Truman Mox, Inc has provided numerous Brewery Appraisals across the country. Craft Beer helped spike the market in the 2000s and the progress of the Craft Brewery Industry has been on a steady incline for the past 2 decades. The Brewers Association provides education and guidance to many new and existing craft brewers.
The used market, while fluctuations have occurred, is still relatively robust as new and existing craft breweries look to save on capital expenditures in any way possible.
For Brewery Appraisals, there are several factors you should consider. Here are some important ones:
- Age and Condition: Evaluate the age and condition of the equipment. Relatively new and well-maintained equipment will typically have a higher value than older, worn-out equipment.
- Brand and Model: Consider the brand and model of the equipment. Some brands and models are more highly regarded in the industry than others, and this will affect their value.
- Production Capacity: Look at the production capacity of the equipment. The more beer the equipment can produce, the more valuable it is likely to be.
- Efficiency: Assess the efficiency of the equipment. The more efficient the equipment is, the more cost-effective it is to operate, and the higher its value.
- Adaptability: Evaluate the adaptability of the equipment. Can it be easily modified to produce different types of beer or to accommodate changes in production needs? Equipment that is highly adaptable may have a higher value.
- Maintenance Records: Look at the maintenance records for the equipment. Well-maintained equipment will typically have a higher value than equipment that has been poorly maintained.
- Market Demand: Consider the current demand for brewing equipment in the market. If there is high demand for equipment of a particular type or brand, its value may be higher.
By considering these factors, you can make an informed decision when appraising the equipment of a brewery. Brewery Appraisals have been provided by Truman Mox for over a decade.April 7, 2023 6:24 pm
