About this event

After a couple of years of home brewing, Torrey and Stacy decided to work on a business plan in order to help grow the number of breweries in Wichita. At the time, there were only two brewery/restaurants in the area. Join us to hear more details of how they started, what helped them to grow, and the lessons they learned along the way!
