Braven the Path to a Bushwick Brewery
This week on Fuhmentaboudit, solo host Chris Cuzme is talking to the founders of Braven Brewing Company - Eric Feldman and Marshall Thompson. Located around the corner from Heritage Radio Network in Bushwick, Brooklyn, Braven Brewing Company came about in 2013. Focused on creating crisp, perfectly balanced ales and lagers, Eric and Marshall take Chris through how they came together to establish their own brewery from the bottom up. After the break, the guys share their plans for a future taproom and bringing the brewing operation totally back to Brooklyn as well. It's clear that Braven takes pride in being an active member of the Bushwick community and is excited to help revive Brooklyn as one of America's top brewing capitals. Tune in for a great show! This program was brought to you by Whole Foods Market.
"I think one of the coolest things about doing home brewing is that there's the delayed gratification for it." [8:50]
"There used to be over two dozen breweries in the neighborhood and most people don't even know that, especially when they move here. The last one closed in 1976." [22:55]
