Lenny Kolada (Smokehouse Brewing Company)

June 22, 2015, 10:00 PM UTC – June 23, 2015, 1:00 AM UTC

Lenny Kolada is a pioneer of craft brewing in Columbus. He started two brewpubs Central Ohio, and has been operating in the industry for more than 23 years. In a previous life, Lenny was an architect -- and he would have happily been a brewpub customer instead of owner if someone else had opened one locally first.

About this event

The brewery scene in Columbus is exploding, so we are teaming up with Drink Up Columbus to do a special Startup Grind event around the business of brewing beer. We will set up shop at Smokehouse Brewing Co. and we'll have a chat with Lenny Kolada, owner of Smokehouse Brewing about the business of starting & running a craft brewery. Included in the ticket price is a terrific food spread and your first pint of beer. Of course, you can purchase more pints.
