“At Aurora Ale and Lager, we hoped to expand our production capacity, but were new to raising funds on a larger scale. The team at CEDA was extremely helpful walking us through the whole process. We hope to be a more integral part of the community as we expand, and having the support of the county development agency is a great start!” ~John Evans, Aurora Ale & Lager Co.
