You Focus on Perfecting your brew – we’ll take care of the numbers.

As the owner of a craft brewery or brewpub, we know that between production, marketing, sales and administrative matters, the last thing you have time to worry about is your accounting and tax planning– that’s where we can help take the burden off of your shoulders.

At TheThirstyCPA, our team not only loves drinking craft beer, we also really like working with craft brewers. We are proud to be able to call ourselves the leading tax and accounting provider for craft breweries in Georgia  – with our clients including some of the largest and most successful breweries in the Southeast. Over the course of our relationship working with brewery owners, we’ve found your passion for your businesses and the communities you serve is second to none and have enjoyed getting to know and work with some of the most fervent and innovative leaders in the industry.

While the advent of craft breweries and brewpubs is still evolving (rapidly in the region), we have been assisting our clients for years with the complexities that come along with strategic evolution and have worked with clients in all phases of the business life cycle. Partnering with the right mix of legal experts and bankers, we have helped dozens of organizations along the path from concept and development stage, to operating phase and significant growth, all the while helping them to avoid the pitfalls of tax or industry regulation.

“We have really enjoyed the opportunity to work with the team at PKM. We had a pretty solid financial system in place and a good understanding of the business, but PKM was able to come in and take us from doing things pretty well, to doing them very well, while ensuring that we remained compliant. Their expertise in tax planning has been invaluable to us over the course of our relationship and allowed us more confidence in our financial picture as it relates to talking to investors and bankers. On top of their expertise in accounting, they are just good people, and they care about our business and our industry.” 

– Chris Herron, CEO, Creature Comforts Brewing Company

Over the course of serving our craft beverage clients, we’ve seen that while many have their financial systems in a good place, there is still room for improvement – leaving the door wide open for opportunities to streamline processes and take advantage of new offerings – ultimately saving you time and your brewery money.

  • Strategic Planning & Budgeting
  • Cash Flow Projections
  • Entity Selection Analysis
  • Capital Raising
  • Back Office Support
  • Automated Accounting (setup, training and support)
  • Tax Planning and Compliance

Are you ready to take your financial picture to the next level? Let TheThirstyCPA help you get there.
