Luke Livingston of Baxter Brewing Co. speaks Thursday evening at the Uplift LA presentation, “Stories that Uplift,” at Fuel’s Sidecar Room in Lewiston. Livingston spoke of his start in Lewiston and how the networks, professionals and financial support he had locally drove his choice to make Lewiston his business location. Growing up in the area and seeing the empty mills during his childhood inspired him to start his brewery here. He said he never had a backup plan when he started his business “because I would have done that instead.” (Andree Kehn/Sun Journal)
