HPIB CLE: Southern Tier Brewery December 4th Event Recap
Southern Tier Founder Phin DeMink Inspires at Cleveland Event
The Cleveland Chapter of Hockey Players in Business held an inspiring event at Southern Tier Brewery on December 4, 2019. Phin DeMink, Founder of Southern Tier, shared the history of the brewery from the humble beginnings of when he, his wife and father-in-law started the company in 2002 to now as the firm employs over 1,000 employees at its breweries, brew pubs and various entities. Truly an amazing story of the entrepreneurial spirit from a former hockey player that grew up in southern New York. Over 35 members and guests were in attendance to enjoy this behind-the-scenes experience and to ask Phin a litany of questions. Great speaker, great food, great drinks (of course!) and most importantly, a great networking opportunity for all involved.
