Amazing place about 30 minutes from downtown Columbus. Located in a farming area. Beautiful location, huge beautiful grounds. Tasting room Is in a house that feels like an Aspen ski house. Beautiful wood, great bar. Comfort at its extreme. Owner was as nice as possible, gave us a tour of brewery. Had the barrel aged tripel on tap, which was phenomenal. Also bought a bottle of a new 10% Saison. Beers were very good. Bought a bunch to go. A must stop if youíre in the area

Located off the beaten path, Rockmill is a bit different than the breweries Iím used to visiting. There are a few separate buildings on the property, and the tasting room is in a roomy lodge-like structure with a mezzanine. The bar itself is cozy, and there are tables and chairs scattered throughout. The server was super friendly. There are only 3 taps, so most of the pours are from bottles themselves. Pours are reasonably priced, both as full or small sizes, but the bottles are pretty expensive. The beer is all excellent, though. Their standards were all available, along with a couple seasonals and a new release. I think they do some bread and cheese plates, but I never saw a menu for it. Overall, a really cool place. Iíll be back.

Rockmill Brewery is located on a picturesque farm on Lithopolis Road a couple miles off 33. Parking is available in front of a garage and apparently anywhere else you can find it.
The exterior of the tap room is covered with shady lush foliage, and has a patio outside as well as some other niche seating areas that offer views of the lake and surrounding scenery. Inside the farmhouse opens to a tasting room and bar, with multi level rooms devoted to seating, merch and a kitchen. There is a bar along the left with a couple taps behind it. Lots of rustic decor including horse-themed artwork.
Rockmill only has a couple beers on draught, including Petit Saison and Siason Noir on my visit. The rest of the Portfolio is available in bottles for on site consumption or to go. Flights of 4 are available as well.
Service at the bar on an early Saturday afternoon was good. The bartender was very knowledgeable about the beers and attentive throughout my visit.
I did not have food on my visit, but the menu of bread, cheese and charcuterie looked good.
Overall I am glad I finally made the drive to this brewery, they have good beers and the idyllic setting makes for a great experience.

Beautiful property, inside and out. Extremely kind and hospitable staff. Only have their own beers available, but itís some of the best American made belgian brews Iíve ever had. Food served was delicious, high-end and gourmet. Itís a bit of a drive to get there from where I am, but Rockmill is definitely a very memorable experience. Very impressive all-around.

Stopped in on a Friday afternoon, shortly after they opened at noon. The building looks like it shares a driveway with a house and could probably be mistaken for that if one didnít know any better. My wife and I were the only people in the tasting room until we were about ready to leave. The person behind the bar was very friendly and knowledgeable about the beer she was serving. She was the mother of the brewer and said the brewery was a family operation. The ambiance of the building was awesome. Itís probably the coolest brewery Iíve ever visited. They do only carry their own product, but it is all very good. They have a couple floors of seating along with their bar and patio. If I lived in the area, this is one place Iíd have to visit often. Such a relaxing environment. The only real downfall I can see with this place, is their bottle prices, but all things considered, theyíre probably fair. If you go with the flight, you canít go wrong at $10 for a sample of their five beers. The bread they brought out with their samples was delicious as well. I donít think they have a restaurant side of things currently, but if they ever do, I would have high hopes.
