On Wednesday, April 24th, North Branch Works hosted our second annual tour of businesses in our community. Last year’s Brewery Tour expanded into this year’s Beans & Breweries Tour as we included Metropolis Coffee Company along with Metropolitan Brewery, Maplewood Brewery & Distiller, and Revolution Brewing. Over 20 people joined the tour which highlighted the growing businesses in the Addison South and Kennedy Industrial Corridors. Our tour bus kept everyone comfortable as we kept the fun going from site to site. NBW is grateful to all of the businesses for allowing us to have a tour and sample their products. A special thank you goes to Bigane Paving Co and Ogden Avenue Materials who sponsored the event.
