COLUMBIANA, Ohio – The Columbiana Area Chamber of Commerce will honor three businesses at its 65th Annual Awards Banquet, held Feb. 24 at The Links Banquet Center at Firestone Farms.

Park Ave., is owned by David and Ginny Perkins and Larry and Vicki Deidrick. It is home to more than 50 antique and artisan vendors.

The Adaptive Reuse and Upgrade Award will be given to Birdfish Brewing Co., 16 S. Main St., for the work done by owner Josh Dunn, Josh Dunn, Jared Channel and Greg Snyder. Opened in 2015, the brewery is housed in a former car dealership.
