Believe in the Business of Your Dreams

It is important to take time to develop your vision; and your practical thinking should be geared to this vision. You need to work with conviction. Being a dreamer does not mean that you can't also be a doer. In fact, having a dream is the starting point for building your dream business. The problem starts when you stop there instead of setting realizable immediate targets. Success cannot come from one day to the next. So you need to build your dream business bit by bit. When your dreams begin to be transformed into reality thanks to your actions, you become aware of the power you possess for catalyzing success; and this further strengthens your determination to reach every single one of your business goals.

Transatlantic Taps: Our Sister Brewery Comes to Brooklyn

You’ve been hearing us talk about our sister brewery, Nya Carnegie Bryggeriet in Stockholm, Sweden, for over a year. Seeing as it’s the first American-style craft brewery in Europe (set up in collaboration with Carlsberg), it’s a justifiably big deal. We’ve bragged about them on our tours, visited them on our Mash Tour, and encouraged everyone we know to go and visit. “Sounds great!” We often hear in response, “Can I try some in your Tasting Room?”
