The Young Professionals recently celebrated “Novemberfest” at the Lord Hobo Brewing Company. With over 80 attendees, the event was a rousing success. Lord Hobo hosted the group in their spacious tap room which serves samples of their freshly brewed IPA’s. The founder, Daniel Lanigan graciously took the group on a tour of the brewery and explained the brewery process. Daniel has exciting plans for the Woburn location to add an eatery to the brewery. We are certainly looking forward to that! The Young Professionals meet quarterly to provide the young and the young at heart with the opportunity to network and enjoy fun activities.
