Last week, Rep. Angie Craig named Spiral Brewery the "Small Business Hero" of the 2nd Congressional District at a U.S. House Small Business Committee hearing typically held during Small Business Week.

Spiral Brewery owners Jen, Amy and Nick Fox were invited to Washington D.C. to testify in front of the committee, which Craig is a member of, on May 8. During the testimony, Amy Fox shared the story of what it took for the team to get Spiral up and running, and the success that the business has seen in its first year.

For the team, it was a great experience to get to go in front of the committee and work with Craig to share their story, Jen Fox said.

"It was an incredible honor to join other small businesses from across the country and discuss small business loans and financing," Fox said. "Nick, Amy and I are very proud we got to represent our tiny, little business at our nation's capital."
