02/25/2016 - SPARK Columbus - Simmons Winery & 450 North Brewery

The path to entrepreneurship is filled with many ups and downs. Making the leap from concept to reality is not always easy, and rarely follows a plan. Come and listen to local trail blazers talk about their expectations,  trials and errors, changes in plans, and cherished successes. 

Owners David and Brenda Simmons started Simmons Winery in 2000. Four years ago, the family opened a brewery and full-service restaurant.  Its 450 North Brewery continues to expand its beer and hard cider selections. Their products are now sold in 400 retail outlets.

This event is sponsored by JCB Bank and is a partnership with IUPUC's Center for Business and Economic Development.
