Just kind of an average all around joint. Itís a small, store-front type bar with a friendly enough staff - not necessarily the most knowledgeable. The food was pretty good - a bit better than i expected, and of course, it was very affordable - the joys of being away from an urban area. I definitely recommend their Diesel Oil Stout, although they also have a decent selection of guest taps to select from.

Stopped in for lunch and a beer while traveling through town. Food was solid, and e service was okay. Itís not the most pleasant atmosphere, but it wasnít bad. The selection was decent, but nothing special, and their draft chalk board wasnít current. Employees eating at the bar with me while I was there... Food was priced well, but the beers were overpriced. Glad I stopped by to check it out, but Iím not sure if Iíll be back.

This is an unassuming place near the heart of downtown. Services can be spotty but the local selection of beers makes it worth a visit if you want a break on the drive between Indianapolis and Louisville. The house beers were not amazing but still drinkable. Throw in some taps from the Indianapolis area and you have a place worth visiting once.

i will always love this place. the service is typically lacking (think: get it yourself), but the food has gotten MUCH better and the beer, as always, is stellar. i wish they would put prices next to their brews (you can never tell when youíve ordered an 8 dollar pint). canít wait for these dudes to expand and take over the world.

When entering Columbus bar, I was struck by the mixture of the old and the new; it seems that much of the architecture of years past remains, but the space doesnít feel exceedingly old, either. If anything, it feels rather comfortable. Service was prompt, knowledgeable, and patient (I can be a pain in the ass at times). The tap selection went from local, to regional to the commonplace- They only had two of their beers available, which is understandable per demand, but Stella, Boddingtons and Guinness? Perhaps they try to make their appeal broad, which I canít fault. Before we got our meals, we had a beer cheese pretzel, which was very fresh and tasty. I noticed people coming in from the community and not ordering beer- they came for the food. The food was very good, indeed- burgers served on texas toast, which worked very well. My wife had an excellent Reuben and my sonís chicken fingers were a tad crispy for him, but also quite good. All the food was very fairly priced, but I thought the beer sampler, which was two bucks a sample, was steep even for Louisville standards. Still, this place has much to be proud of, and I hope they continue to improve in the future; I will be back.

I came away from this place hoping that the locals appreciate what they have. Yes, a small, cramped area, but friendly and knowledgable staff, good food and good beer more than make up for it. They have about ten taps not their own, and this include ones from Three Floyds, Founders, and Upland. I think five selections of their own while I was there, and of the three I had, two were excellent and other was above average. Presumably the best beer bar in a 50 mile radius (?). I will be back.

Great beer selection including their own brews. Food good, but a little pricey. Nice atmosphere, just a little cramped.

This is the type of place that would be easy to ignore or not to find based on the outside appearance. That would be a mistake! Outstanding selection, service and value. Iíll be back.

Street parking in front and lot parking. Clean older building with brewing in the front and bar in center with tables for food and beverages. Sixteen Indiana standards with one Powerhouse on tap. All were drinkable brews. Freindly bartender with good knowledge of brews. The menu had starters and sandwichs. Nice bike ride location and I will stop again.
