City Brew is opening its latest Billings location on Wednesday, March 11th. We've been keeping a close eye on this one, mainly because it's in our building at the lobby level of the DoubleTree Hotel. Being nosy neighbors, we stopped by today to check out the progress and were able to chat with Chrissy O'Malley, director of retail store operations.

She said the new City Brew location will be running a "friends & family" soft-opening on Tuesday, March 10th for a few hours, then open to the public starting at 5 am Wednesday morning. While it seems like there a lot of coffee shops in Billings (I gave up counting at 50 on page three of my Google search), people LOVE their coffees. I think this location will do great with all the foot traffic in the neighboring blocks. I'm looking forward to the convenience of grabbing one of their awesome snacks too.

The staff were going through some final set-up and training when we stopped by. This location will employ around 15-18 people and we think it will be a nice addition to our downtown neighborhood. When you're wandering around for the St. Patrick's Day Parade next Saturday (3/14) stop by the new City Brew and check it out.
