Q&A: Meet the fellas behind Franklinton’s Land Grant Brewing

Land Grant Brewing Company (424 W. Town St.) owner Adam Benner and creative director Walt Keys finally have a date to circle on the calendar.

Things We Love: Kareem Jackson shares of his favorite things

If you don’t know what Kareem Jackson likes, just visit his store.

Taking his HOMAGE brand from the shelves of Short North boutiques to Easton and now a new Short North location (replacing Substance), Vesler can’t restock his vintage-style -sports-based clothing fast enough. While one might think sports and vintage tees are at the top of Vesler’s interests (and they are), his attention has recently been grabbed by philanthropy and the simpler things. We recently caught up with the HOMAGE headman and found out some of his favorite things. For the full list, head to columbusalive.com.
