We built a strong infrastructure so Summit could make better beer.
In 1986, Summit founder Mark Stutrud set out to rediscover the traditional brewing methods behind the great handcrafted beers that once flowed throughout the Midwest. Ever since, Summit has been focusing on brewing beer as stimulating, complex and rich in character as the people who share it.
Summit was growing faster than their manual systems would allow. The company went from producing 5,000 barrels in 1993 to over 100,000 barrels in 2011. Summit turned to Columbus for technology solutions that would scale with their business.
Columbus collaborated with Summit to provide a Microsoft based technology infrastructure that would grow with their business. The solution included Microsoft Dynamics GP, SQL Server, Exchange and Windows. The solution platform also supports robust companion products to enhance their business and the ability to integrate with other business systems and applications.
