Consulting Testimonials

“When our volumes began escalating and we urgently required additional tank space Costa was very quick to come to our assistance - a tank manufacturer was expeditiously sourced, diagrams agreed and a more than competitive pricing set. We could not be happier; the tanks are of excellent quality and arrived without fuss, on time and in budget. It is refreshing to deal with someone so efficient, we will not hesitate to use Costa’s services again.”
Alistair - Adelaide Hills Craft Brewing Adelaide Australia

“For a while we had wanted to start our brewery, but had no real idea how to go about this. Costa’s seminar helped give us the direction and motivation to finally move forward. That said, it wasn’t all beer and skittles, it was a warts and all look at was we needed to do and think about. The fact it was rooted in reality made this a much more valuable session. We also had Costa come over to talk through progressing our business ideas. It was a valuable exercise to talk through the business more directly and also look at what other brewers were doing in our local market. Costa’s experience helped us to flesh out our ideas and options. Now not all are going to be done in the short term (budgets being what they are) but they are certainly still in our longer term plans. All up Costa’s experience and advise helped us move forward to the point where are currently waiting on our brewery manufacture. I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that without this advice we would probably still be sitting trying to work out what to do.”

“Costa Nikias from B&BC is a thorough professional when it comes to establishing breweries. From our initial contact to present day he constantly strives for excellence in his work and continues to provide us with the best objective advice for our particular situation. He willingly treated our project like his own and assumed responsibility to make sure we reached our business objectives of becoming the fastest growing craft brewery in the country. Costa was engaged by Stark Brewery in Indonesia to develop Indonesia’s most successful Craft Brewery and brought a great deal of passion and know-how to our project. He was very efficient in his dealings and very up-front in the way he does business which allowed for a seamless process of establishing a 30HL Turnkey Craft Brewery producing a range of beers for the local market.

Costa assisted us with the following aspects of the brewery establishment:

Equipment Design & Specification, Equipment Installation & Commissioning, Project Management, Packaging systems integration and operation, Brewing Process design, Brewing Training and how to brew, Recipe Tweaking, Recipe Development, Brewing on a daily basis and developing better brewing techniques, Creating Brewing Schedules, Occupational Health & Safety advice/processes.

I would highly recommend Costa and his services for anyone considering establishing their own microbrewery as he brings a holistic perspective to the project from concept, marketing and technical services/beer production all in a friendly and easy to understand way.”

“We engaged Costa & the team to design, co-ordinate project manage and install a complete turnkey brewery system for our hotel to produce full flavoured craft beer in-house for our demanding clientele. We were very impressed early on with their ability to take a tricky project like this one that had budget & space constraints and cleverly come up with solutions to ensure the brewery was put in accordingly. The whole execution, troubleshooting & approach was second to none. I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone who is considering installing a microbrewery into a hotel or similar.
A Big well done.”
