I mic just about the same way for brushes and sticks... just a bit closer for brushes...
Put the mic over the top of the drum by about and inch or so. Depends on the kit setup, but get it over the top of the rim.
Note where the player plays the snare. Angle the mic downward to the area where the dummer plays and point the center of the mic to the center of that area. If you can get the mic inward over the rim (toward the center of) the snare by some distance, all the better. I'd call the angle something like 15 degrees down.
If you want to put a bottom mic on the snare, mirror the top mic and reverse it's phase... but with brushes, I've found that I don't usually like/use one.
