“This is an exciting new chapter in our history,” said Johnson, whose serves as the chief executive officer for High Spirits.  “We started out as a small bartending company working out of our my garage, and have grown into a business with 19 full-time employees and more than 70 part-time employees.”

The idea behind High Spirits Hospitality is to serve as the overarching bridge between the four companies that all serve unique and different purposes, but operate with the vision of providing exceptional, hospitality-driven service for each and every guest and client we encounter.  The four brands under High Spirits Hospitality are:
