Getting Serious About Coffee.

We’re very excited to announce that after Easter will be serving ‘proper’ freshly ground coffee for all conferences. So no need to stop at a fancy hipster coffee shop on your way to The Brewery when we will have our barista’s and special coffee blend waiting for you. We even have these fancy cups.
