Brewery Celebrates Grand Opening
COLUMBIA - Today is the grand opening of Logboat Brewing company.
The brewing company has been active for the past month, but is taking the time to celebrate at its location on Fay Street today. The celebration includes live music from The Flood Brothers and Jenny Teator & The Fevers, as well as food from Smokin' Chicks BBQ and Ozark Mountain Biscuit Co. There will also be a raffle.
CEO Tyson Hunt said he, along with Judson Ball and Andrew Sharp, has been working on the company for three and a half years.
"It's a pretty big moment to celebrate.It's been a pretty awesome journey," Hunt said. "We've had the tap room open now for about four weeks, five weeks, so figured we'd throw a big party and kind of kick this thing off."
Next week, Logboat will distribute its beer throughout bars and restaurants in Columbia. Hunt said the Columbia community has been extremely supportive of Logboat.
"This community's been really outstanding, so we're excited to get them beer and have some fun with them," Hunt said.
Hunt, a resident of Columbia for more than 12 years, said that Columbia is the perfect place for Logboat Brewing Company.
