History of the Tech Brewery
The Tech Brewery is a coworking space founded in 2009 by serial entrepreneur Dug Song and building owner Doug Smith. Initially an experiment to see if a shared-desk tech space would gain support in Ann Arbor, the TechBrewery quickly grew from a handful of users to a busy community of 20-30 tech entrepreneurs.
A number of companies started at the Tech Brewery have graduated to become major employers in Ann Arbor and southeast Michigan. Alumni of the TechBrewery include Deepfield, Mobiata, and Dug's own firm firm Duo Security, which grew from a 2-person startup at the TechBrewery to a 100+ employee firm downtown.
Startups that have started at the TechBrewery have a combined net worth in excess of 1 billion dollars ($1,000,000,000).
History of The Northern Brewery Building
The Northern Brewery houses the Tech Brewery among other tech and various companies, including some Tech Brewery alumni. Built in 1886 as a brewery, tucked away in Ann Arbor's north side, the building has been renovated into office space with a wood, brick and glass feel.
