Thankfully, unlike the fidget cube, Gathering Place has remained relevant since about February 2017 when 222 people believed in an award-winning homebrewer, Joe Yeando. Since that time, Gathering Place, located in Riverwest has been dedicated to the community…

We have visited them at their Brewery at the Lincoln Warehouse, their second location at Hamilton Street in Milwaukee,…
