More than trying to sell our VicinityBrew software, we are passionate about helping these small businesses and entrepreneurs take their breweries to the next level."

Mr. Smith continues by saying, "After all, thirteen years ago, I left a large, well-known accounting firm, to follow my dream of working for myself and creating a great process manufacturing solution.
