After getting a degree at Clark University in Massachusetts, she set her sights westward.While working in the non-profit sector in Cleveland she met a fuzzy raft guide and decided that Montana was calling. Lauren’s organizational and management skills led her to be hired on as the general manager for an adventure travel company, where she learned how to manage and grow a successful business. Lauren’s entrepreneurial spirit was unlocked and after obtaining Master in Business Administration, she founded Go To Gal, a local concierge service. When the opportunity to buy Neptune’s Brewery came, she decided to take all of her experience and apply it to the world of beer. A coffee and dark beer fanatic, Lauren is the inspiration for the Knotty Lotty Latte Stout.
