Forbes – When Banks Say No, Where Do You Go? Ask Boston’s Democracy Brewing.

From Forbes:

Razsa has a bachelor’s degree in community studies and economic justice from the University of California, Santa Cruz. Before becoming an entrepreneur, Razsa was the director of campaigns for 350 Massachusetts for a Better Future, a community organization dedicated to fighting climate change.

But Razsa also had five years of experience as a barback, dishwasher, bartender and food runner, and he had interned with Jason Taggart, head brewer of  John Harvard’s Brewery and Ale House, with locations in Cambridge and Framingham, Massachusetts.

Taggart is now Razsa’s partner in Democracy Brewing, which opened last July 4, just five and a half years after Razsa and Taggart first decided to start a worker-owned business.
