Show Notes Chapter Markers

The Queen City Brewery of Cincinnati (QCB) closed its doors & locked up for the last time in September 2019. I sit down, separately, with Jason Surniak (Head Brewer) & Justen Cheers (CFO) to talk about why.

Not all hustles have happy endings. In fact, many small businesses end up having to shut down for some reason or another.  Its not an uncommon ending. These two entrepreneurs openly & honestly talk to me about what they feel, ultimately, lead to QCB closing their doors for good. We talk about how it started, what went down, & what's next for these two hustlers.

I sat down with Jason at 50 West Brewing Company in Mariemont, OH & we enjoyed a few brews while discussing his journey as QCB's Head Brewer.
