What started as hobby brewing beer in their garage, has grown into a successful full-blown brewery with dining options for Michael and Rachel Haseltine.

We recently had the chance to meet up with these busy entrepreneurs to discuss their business and how it got started.

“One of our biggest challenges was that we did not have the business background knowledge,” explained Rachel. “We originally reached out for help with our business plan and securing funding to purchase the food side of our business. Sade helped us with this and we realized all of the wonderful ways she could help us so we really capitalized on that,” she went on to say.

“As Sade worked with us more, she was able to tailor her expertise to what our business needs were and help coach us how to run a successful business,” Michael went on to say.

Helping businesses like Better Half Brewing is what our Business Advisors do every day. From help securing financing, to developing a marketing plan or conducting market research, CTSBDC is able to help in a variety of capacities.

“I am so proud of what they have learned throughout the process,” said Sade. “It is so exciting to see it all come together for them to successfully secure funding.”
