Neat & Mixed from Hops & Spirits

In this Q&A, we chat with Ryan Lang, co-founder and CEO of Middle West Spirits in Columbus, Ohio. Ryan talks about how the industry has changed since Middle West launched in 2008, his family's history in distilling, going from engineer to distiller, why they source locally/regionally as much as possible, collaborating with others on projects, sharing their knowledge with partners, their lineup of spirits and more.
