We sat down with Chris Andrus, Co-Founder and Co-Owner of the Mitten, to chat through the journey of the Mitten: from their start brewing beer in the basement, to painstakingly restoring the historic Engine House No. 9 on the West Side, to donating more than $250,000 to local organizations since opening in 2012. Take a listen to hear more about what makes this company so deserving of the Excellence in Business recognition!
