Manufacturers Networking: Goldhorn Brewery

Tue, Nov 27, 2018 4:30 PM – 7:30 PM

Goldhorn Brewery

Join Manufacturing Works for a networking tour at Goldhorn Brewery. The 10,000-square-foot brewery and 175-seat taproom is an industrial-chic pub located in St. Clair Superior's Hub 55 complex and is named for the famed mountain goat of Slovenian folklore in homage to its neighborhood roots. The brewery has a rotating draft list but focuses on the types of beers you'd expect to have found in a place like this in the 30s and 40s when the area was filled with Slovenians and Croatians and other ethnic groups.
