The Tech Brewery was founded in 2009 by serial entrepreneur Dug Song and building owner Doug Smith. Initially an experiment to see if a shared-desk tech space would gain support in Ann Arbor, the TechBrewery quickly grew from a handful of users to a busy community of 20-30 tech entrepreneurs.
A number of companies started at the Tech Brewery have graduated to become major employers in Ann Arbor and southeast Michigan. Alumni of the TechBrewery include Deepfield, Mobiata, and Dug's own firm firm Duo Security, which grew from a 2-person startup at the TechBrewery to an 100+ employee firm downtown. Startups begun at the TechBrewery have attracted over $100,000,000 in investment.
The Northern Brewery houses the Tech Brewery among other tech and various companies, including some Tech Brewery alumni. Built in 1886 as a brewery, tucked away in Ann Arbor's north side, the building has been renovated into office space with a wood, brick and glass feel.
