Stafford County has a strong sense of community led by the entrepreneurs and leaders who choose to do business in Stafford. From government contractors to family-owned breweries, our business community is diverse, appreciated, and united. Beyond our formal borders, we have a network of interested business owners and managers that all contribute to our sense of community. One way we have continued to foster and build that community is through our quarterly Beer & Business Events.

Register today for the next Beer & Business at 6 Bears & a Goat Brewing Company on November 9 at

We believe these events provide us all with a great re-connect and perhaps make introductions to new contacts across Stafford and our region’s growing entrepreneurial community.

Hosted quarterly by the Stafford EDA, the Beer & Business Series is a professional network that connects entrepreneurs, business managers, and leaders in the region to learn about relevant topics in the industry. The great perk is the opportunity to experience Stafford’s award-winning breweries with refreshments complementary to those who attend.

At each quarterly Beer & Business Series, we share “The Raw Truth” of an industry topic. It is these topic experts that sponsor each event, and allows them to briefly share some of their expertise though a short informal Q&A format.

Past Beer & Business events have included topics such as the Raw Truth of Real Estate, the Raw Truth of Fiber Communication, the Raw Truth of the Business of Baseball, the Raw Truth of Dirt, and the Raw Truth of Marketing.

Each location for Beer & Business, sometimes called Wine and Business when held at the local winery, is a cherished part of the Stafford community. Previously hosted locations have included: 6 Bears & a Goat Brewing Company, Adventure Brewing Company, Barley Naked Brewing Company, Highmark Brewery, and Potomac Point Vineyard and Winery.

Curious what all the buzz is? Hop on over to the next Beer & Business Series on November 9!
