JOIN US AFTER FOR A BEER

After spending the day at the Conference, we at Columbian figured we could all use a chance to unwind, network with our peers, and discuss what we learned or what struck us most strongly.  What better way to do that in Beer City, USA, than host it at one of Grand Rapids’ hottest new tasting rooms?

Join us at the brand new Atwater Brewery tasting room in the southwest corner of the newly renovated Rowe Building, in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids.  Our Pints With Peers reception will feature the full line of Atwater Brewing Company beers a spread of the restaurant’s finest offerings.

We’ll be there from 4pm-7pm, and we hope you can join us. Even if you are not attending the conference, we would love to have you as our guest!

P.S. Did we mention free beer?
