    The Venture Forum and Gold Sponsor Bowditch & Dewey, LLP, invite you to 3cross Brewing Company on October 18 to learn firsthand how beer and entrepreneurship are the perfect ingredients for the emerging craft brewing industry in Worcester! To generate operating income, brewers are managing multiple businesses and brands from one location, such as coffee shops in the morning and tap rooms in the evening. Join us and learn how these dual concepts and shared spaces are helping brewers launch successful new ventures in Worcester.
