(SACRAMENTO)- Assemblymember Freddie Rodriguez (D-Pomona) honored the Assembly District 52 Small Business of the Year, Dragon Tale Brewery in Montclair, at the State Capitol today. Dragon Tale Brewery is the first and only female-owned and operated brewery in the Inland Empire and features a microbrewery tasting room and large selection of craft brews. Owners Sousan Elias and Nikki Paternoster opened their brewery in September of 2016 and are truly special members of the community. Both are supporters of the Montclair business community.
“Small businesses like Dragon Tale Brewery make it an honor to represent the growing local community of shops, restaurants, and craft makers. I selected Sousan and Nikki for this year’s award not only because of their craft brewing skills but also their involvement in the community. As the backbone of our economy, I am committed to making the Inland Empire friendly and welcoming of great small businesses. My office serves as an active resource to support entrepreneur and I continue to fight for them in Sacramento.”
