My name is Kary Shumway. I’m a CPA, former CFO for a beer distributor and current CFO for Wormtown Brewery in Worcester, MA.
I’ve spent the last 20 years using finance to help improve financial results in our beer business. Now, I’m helping other craft breweries do the same.
“My latest financial training program has been developed on the Kajabi learning platform in order to deliver the easiest to use and using best practices for learning this content. I have designed this specifically for non-financial people who have the responsibility of either managing or contributing to the success of a beverage-related business such as breweries, beer wholesalers, cideries, distilleries, and cideries.”

"Am I properly managing keg inventory? How do I build a safety program? How do I manage cash flow? Just ask Kary Shumway. He has an answer and also a real gift for simplifying the beer business with solutions you can easily put into action."
"[Kary Shumway’s] Craft Brewery Finance is one of my go-to resources for substantive advice. Across a broad range of fields — not only finance but sales, marketing, planning, and strategy — Kary provides a steady stream of thoughtful and concise guidance to help us navigate the complexities of the beer industry."
"[Kary] reinforces the need for a disciplined approach to the business side of our business. The benchmarks shared in these articles can serve as guideposts for decisions that either strengthen a brewery’s footing or help drive the business forward by identifying and investing in areas that add the most value."
"If you are like me, you spent your formative years under the impression that sales would drive profits and profits would pay the bills. Kary’s information is the cliff notes version of an MBA in financial management I wish I had 20 years ago."
"Kary’s Brewery Financial Training Program has helped me as the leader to dive into our financials and get a specific, realistic understanding of each of our reports. Thanks to Kary we have put into place a weekly cash flow scorecard for our senior leadership team. In addition, I’d recommend this course to any level of brewery finance employee as well as every owner or key leader in your company."
"The class has allowed me to really dive deeper into the numbers and how to apply them accordingly. It's allowing me to make the necessary adjustments within our operations to make sure that we are running more efficiently and profitable. A lot of great insight that will make the transition into a bigger project less stressful. Thanks for offering such a great class."
"I highly recommend the Brewery Financial Training Program to anyone currently running a craft brewery or wanting to start up their own operation. Brewing delicious beer must be paired with strong financial management if a craft brewery is to succeed. This course provides a practical, easy-to-implement blueprint for managing the business, measuring progress, and keeping the cash flow moving. Plus, you’ll get great insider tips from Kary on working with bankers, improving margins, and growing the bottom line. In short, this is a great investment."
