HAVRE, Mont. (NMB) – On Saturday, the Havre Area Chamber of Commerce hosted their first ever Biz & Brews event around town. Executive Director Jody Olson says the event went well and they had over 65 people attend beer tastings at different businesses around Havre to help bring foot traffic to the downtown area.
They had five stops along the way, including Viszla Brewery, Norman’s Ranchwear, Montana Country Boutique, Cavalier’s, and the Elk’s Club. Olson says they had about 20 other local businesses offer sales. In exchange for offering these sales, the Chamber gave the businesses raffle tickets to hand out to shoppers to get them entered to win different prizes.
Olson says they plan on holding the event again next year, but instead of focusing on clothing stores like they did this year, they will feature different kinds of businesses around town.
