“Our biggest priority right now is getting our beer into people’s hands. Luckily, that will start this week!” said Robinson in a press release. “We’re focused on making great beers, telling our story to the US in a very BrewDog way, being the greatest place to work in the world, and creating awesome experiences for our customers and the Equity Punk community.”

Robinson is no stranger to business, and she seems to shine brightest in businesses that are just starting out. Her most recent work includes Print Syndicate, “a design, technology, and marketing company known for lookHUMAN.com, ActivateApparel.com, and MericaMade.com, which sold in excess of $40 million worth of products in its first four years”.

“We’re currently looking for great people that bleed craft beer and love to blow shit up,” said Robinson.

“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, and we’re always on the hunt for talented brewers as we expand capacity, ” she said.

Not only is Robinson an accomplished businesswoman, she is also very involved in our community. Robinson currently serves on the board of The Columbus College of Art and Design, Mount Carmel Health System, and The Greater Columbus Arts Council.

“We have been searching for someone to head up our USA operations, and as soon as we met Tanisha we knew we’d found our Top Dog,” said James Watt, co-founder of BrewDog. “The killer combination of her astute business instinct, huge passion for craft beer, and her love of our new hometown, Columbus made her the perfect fit.”

“Our USA launch and expansion is one of the most exciting and ambitious ventures we’ve dreamt up yet, and with Tanisha at the helm, the sky is the limit,” said Watt.

“Because there are so many craft breweries in America, it’s really forcing everyone in the industry to fixate on creativity and quality. This means that there’s a lot of really amazing, interesting beers coming out, and this expanded range means a lot of people that aren’t into craft beer (yet!) will definitely find something they love,” said Robinson.

“The Columbus, and Ohio, beer scene is particularly vibrant because of the constant expansion, knowledgeable patrons, talented brewers, and incredible diversity,” she said.
