The Mi Casa Center, 360 Acoma Street, is welcoming Samuel Adams Brewing for a free speed-coaching advice program for upcoming entrepreneurs in the food and beverage industry today.

The local companies in the Pitch Room competition include Brewery Rickoli, Bumbleroot Foods, Montanya Distillers, So Much 'Mores Campfire Desserts, Lindita's, Kassia's Pasta Farm and Chocolate Avenue USA. But even those just watching the action should learn plenty. For more information, visit the website.
