Raise your hand if you’ve ever thought about macrame and moonshine at the same time. No? Well we’re set to change that. Join us for a handcrafted variety night like no other! Local macramé artists and moonshiners will share the surprising history behind their respective crafts, then walk us through the hands-on creation of our own keychain while we sample some authentic backwoods hooch.

As CEO of Northside Distilling Co., Aaron Haslam has his hand in virtually every day-to-day operation that it takes to run a craft distillery, including production and distribution, logistics, marketing, running the tasting room, and building and fostering relationships with retail partners. A lawyer by trade, Aaron has a lengthy background in the legal field as well as providing consulting and C-level services for a variety of industries with an emphasis on operations and policy issues. Aaron’s passion for craft spirits and the law are equally matched by his charitable endeavors. He has served on boards of many local nonprofits, including L.A.D.D. (Living Arrangements for the Developmentally Disabled) and Boys Hope Girls Hope. When he’s not manning the helm at Northside Distilling, Aaron can be found golfing, watching sports, going to concerts, and spending time with his wife, Christine, kids Anne “Annie” and Lawrence “Bear,” and five-year-old Bernadoodle pup, Levon. Photo by Casey Santi.



Claire Dieringer is a 2016 graduate of Kent State University, from which she received a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance Performance, Magna Cum Laude. In 2017, Claire joined Mutual Dance Theatre (when it was MamLuft&Co. Dance) after training in New York. She is now also entering her 3rd year of tenure as the organization’s Education and Outreach Coordinator. Growing up in a home full of artists and musicians, Claire has always been into crafting and creating. As a child she learned to sew, crochet, knit, and craft in all sorts of ways! She still uses these skills today when making macrame plant hangers, blankets, costumes/clothing items, and so much more. Channeling her artistic energy into creation has always been a major part of her life.
