Glendale News-Press: Tech on Tap Event Invites Founders of Brewyard Beer Co. to Share Their Entrepreneurial Story

By Jeff Landa

Glendale’s Tech on Tap series — a forum for entrepreneurs and marketers to connect with their community — will hold its sixth event on Wednesday, this time sharing the story of how two friends created the city’s first microbrewery.

This month’s meetup will feature the co-founder of Brewyard Beer Co., Kirk Nishikawa, who will talk about how he and his longtime friend Sherwin Antonio turned a drunken promise into a sophisticated microbrewery from scratch.

The Glendale Tech on Tap series launched in May as a lead-up to the larger Tech Week in September and continued on a monthly basis thereafter. Led by Jennifer McLain, Glendale’s principal economic development officer, the events serve as an informal way to bring small businesses and would-be entrepreneurs together to learn and network with one another.
