I scream. You scream. We all scream for ice cream! Especially Johnson’s REAL Ice Cream.

Sunday, November 15, 2015

Johnsons Real Ice CreamThe oldest ice cream shop in Columbus was opened by Robert N. Johnson and his son-in-law James Wilcoxon on September 1, 1950. While they sold their first scoops of ice cream from the middle of a meat market, together they then built a 15’ x 20’ facility at 2728 East Main Street in Bexley and started Johnson’s REAL Ice Cream. Founder Robert Johnson named his ice cream shop Johnson’s REAL Ice Cream because in comparison to other frozen products of the time, Johnson’s quality ingredients, fine flavoring and family recipes were REAL. The ice cream machine he purchased when the shop opened in 1950 is still being used by his great grandson, and current president, Matt Wilcoxon.

Columbus Brewing Company’s Head Brewmaster, Eric Bean, Helps Drive the Local Craft Brew Industry

Sunday, September 27, 2015

Just a little over five years ago, references to “craft beer” might have needed some explanation. Today, the craft beer business is booming in Columbus and throughout the United States and the industry needs very little clarification. In a 2013 study by the Brewer’s Association, a not-for-profit trade group representing small and independent craft brewers, Ohio’s craft beer industry was named the fourth largest producer in the country, crafting more than one million barrels. Locally, there are more than a dozen breweries inside the I-270 beltway and even more on the way. Looking out farther into the Zanesville, Lancaster, Newark, Delaware and Mansfield areas, the number of operational breweries in central Ohio totals closer to 25. Driving Columbus’ ascension in the exploding craft brew industry is brewmaster, Eric Bean.

Most every company has one of ‘those’ employees. They’re the first to volunteer for after-work or Saturday events.

At Heartland Bank, Paula Brutchey, AVP Operations Manager, is one of ‘those’…..
