“Within the next 12 months, we’ll be hiring across every aspect of the business, and with our Franklinton location opening in October and the Short North bar launching before the end of the year, we’ll be more than doubling the size of our US team,” said Robinson, an entrepreneur with a number of technology start-ups under her belt.

James Watt, co-founder of Ellon-based BrewDog, added: “As soon as we met Tanisha we knew we’d found our top dog. The killer combination of her astute business instinct, huge passion for craft beer, and her love of our new home town, Columbus, made her the perfect fit.”
