Episode 11: Andrew Brooks from Talking Cursive Brewing Company

Today’s Guest: Andrew Brooks

Andrew Brooks is the owner and operator of Talking Cursive Brewing Company in Syracuse, New York. Along with his wife, Andrew has built a beautiful tasting room, an efficient state of the art brewhouse, and a successful business that will surely be around for a long time. Having taken the past year’s slow down of in-person business as an opportunity to increase their distribution network, Andrew and the team at Talking Cursive are ready to grow by leaps and bounds as the economy picks back up and customers return to the tasting room.
