Alcohol use is part of many cultural, religious and social practices, and provides perceived pleasure to many users. The aim of this project was to develop mini scale alcohol production, which would be very useful for those who focus for many developing countries including Ethiopia, developing this project have been valuable for such sector for those who had an idea to develop new alcoholic beverage project professionals. The paper tried to evaluate the economic performance of minimum level alcohol production, grow to in terms of productivity, profitability, capacity utilization, marketing and the socio-economic contribution of the project. Those, the total capital investments found from this study analysis estimated to be total 34, 673,529.41 birr and the total production cost is 4520833.3birr/yr. The Company will get a net income of 1,376,650,000 birr/year. The repayment for the investment cost will be paid off over the next 4.6 years. The project provides for efficient utilization of the existing resource, technological advancement, managerial efficiency and incentives to upgrade traditional beverages to large production process scales.

Keywords:  Alcohol, Material balance, energy balance, equipment sizing, feasibility cost analysis.
