Inspiring Women: Jill & Deb Honored at Lynx Game

August 5th, 2018


On Aug. 5, the Minnesota Lynx continued their Inspiring Women Platform by honoring Jill Pavlak and Deb Loch.

Pavlak and Loch are co-owners of the first women-owned brewery in the state of Minnesota, the Urban Growler.

In 2017, the two were awarded the Alice O’Brien Award from St. Paul in recognition of a women-owned business that is committed to equity and empowerment. They are also the sixth-largest LGBTQ business in the state of Minnesota.

Their goal is to be one of the top-10 breweries in the state by reputation, not volume.

The two were honored with a team-signed basketball by Lynx Vice President of Business Operations Carley Knox.
