A New Tripoli distillery celebrates an early milestone.

The Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber of Commerce helped Eight Oaks Craft Distillers ring in two years of business Wednesday night.

The Chamber tells us Eight Oaks has had a great effect on the local economy and other business owners are following in its footsteps.

"They want to be a part of the growing economy here in New Tripoli and in the Lehigh Valley. They want to really open businesses that compliment [Eight Oaks] so we've seen new restaurants and new gyms that have opened. This area is really becoming a mecca for business as much as it can be in the rural New Tripoli area," said Alice Wanamaker, Assistant Vice President of the Greater Northern Lehigh Chamber of Commerce.

Eight Oaks distillers were on hand to teach guests about their products. The night also featured tours of the distillery as well as drink and food specials.
