Kylie Bunting is the Marketing Director at Innovate Marquette SmartZone and she thinks events like these are a great opportunity for business members to meet and connect.
"I think the best way we can more forward and we can try new things is to learn from one another, so that's where these type of opportunities are really great to come and hear other people's journeys,” says Bunting. “To really know that anybody can do it, anybody can start a business."
The public also had the chance to taste a variety of the beers at the brewery and enjoyed food provided by Café Bodega.
