Stephen Dixon, Owner of Grimross Brewing Co., launched his enterprise at 600 Bishop Drive. Dixon specializes in brewing Belgian-type beers, which are classified by the strains of yeast used during the brewing process. “It's a high-quality product, it has more flavour, as well as more variety... and it tastes good” says Dixon.
Ignite Fredericton worked with Stephen during his entrepreneurial journey, “...they helped be a sounding board for our business plan. So going to them, and talking with them about our plans was really confirmation that we were on the right path. That made us feel really good. That was a confidence builder” said Dixon. “And of course, the financial support really helped to get us over the edge... and allowed us to buy more equipment as we built up our staff.”
