Let's Visit: Cuyuna Brewing Company Brings New Business and New People to Crosby

Sep 10, 2018

Northern Community Radio launched a new program called Let's Visit this summer.  Each month we focus on one community or area in northern Minnesota.  Our first visit had us traveling to Crosby, MN.  It did not disappoint and we are definitely going back!  Crosby was at a crossroads after the mining industry pulled out of the area nearly 30 years ago.  Since that time the community has re-established itself as a recreation destination and the shift has had a direct, positive impact on economy, livability and community growth.  In this segment of Let's Visit, we connect with Laura Huisinga who, along with her husband Nick, owns and operates the Cuyuna Brewing Company in downtown Crosby.  Laura and Nick are the perfect example of how the vibe of a recreation destination has attracted new people to transplant their lives and dreams into the Crosby area.
