Cantankerous Brewing

Andy and Tasha Klockow came to Shannon at the recommendation of Woodland Bank for business planning, financial projections and loan packaging assistance.

Cantankerous Brewing

Andy and Tasha were a joy for Shannon to work with, partly because they used her as a taste tester!  But seriously, as clients, they did everything Shannon asked of them.  In their words: "Shannon put us through business plan boot camp. It was no joke! She scrutinized and challenged every detail down to the last single grain of malted barley, and we are in a confident and knowledgeable position as first time business owners because of that."

Cantankerous Brewing, scheduled to open this fall, will be located in the big blue building next to Walgreen’s.  It’s a great example of a client taking an old vacant building and turning it into a much anticipated venue – Grand Rapids’ first brewery and tap room!
