Pints with Peers | Midwest Supply Chain Management Conference Reception

Let’s talk logistics over a beer.

Professional conferences can be a wonderful thing. They often start early, go all day, and provide new ideas, concepts, or strategies that we can take back to our own businesses. The Midwest Supply Chain Conference is no different.

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’ new tasting rooms?

Join us at 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 and 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!

Pints with Peers

Have a cider (or beer) on us.

Fall is coming, and what better way to embrace the cider season than drinks at one of Grand Rapid’s newest spots (and only cider mill)?! Join us for another Pints with Peers on Thursday, October 12th from 4-7pm at Vander Mill in Grand Rapids.

Networking doesn’t have to be boring– and let’s face it, it can’t be when delicious and refreshing drinks are involved! Come chat with us, fill your pint glass, and take a free private tour of Vander Mill’s production area.

Not a cider person? Vandermill offers beer as well. Try their Belgian Mild, IPA, or a nice, smooth Pilsner.
