Inspiring Women Series | Jill Pavlak & Deb Loch

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.
