Really cool old building with a big long marble topped bar. Early 20th century decor. Good selection of house beers and a full bar. Food menu aims high but lands a little short, almost as if the cook has one eye on the food and the other on his pocketbook.
A great spot in an old theater. Service was very nice, flights by the glass in flutes with stem tags was a really nice touch. Selection was pretty big and the beer was OK. Prices were decent and although on itís own it may not be a big draw, its proximity to other beer destinations makes it a good stop.
Here is a fine brewpub where the exceptional venue and food out shine the beer. The beers are good, but the interior and, to a lesser extent, the exterior of this pub are exceptional. Fine woodwork abounds, most notably in the bar, and thereís a large stained glass window in the back. Iíve eaten here 3-4 times and have always been happy with my meal. They a range of beers: 11 on tap today but often 12.
Nice, German-influenced brewpub in downtown Columbus. The interior is quite classy with high ceilings, stained-glass windows, and modern, trendy decor. Service was good, with the server helping us with our drink selection. The beer was above average - while not the best microbrew Iíve ever had, itís certainly the best Columbus has to offer. It is, unfortunately, a bit pricey with entrees toping $20 and sandwiches for $10. There was a least a decent happy-hour that offered pints (non-seasonals) for $3. If youíre in town, then this is a good place to stop.
This is a beautiful room in downtown Columbus that is worth stopping by just for the bar and the ceiling. I was there on a Saturday night and was almost completely ignored by the wait staff behind the bar. It was busy, but not that busy. The food here is great, and is a several steps above your usual brewpub fare. They have a wide selection of styles, and the beers I had were all solid. I always think of this as a better restaurant than brewpub.
This place is nice with good beer selection and good food. It is pricy, but that is to be expected for the quality, location, and selection. When I was there the place was almost empty, but I was seated in a poor spot. Also, it took quite a while to be waited on. As far as the ambiance goes there it is almost void. It may just be due to the fact that Iím used to small, squat, small-town bars, but if felt like the place had no real character. Overall it isnít a bad place to go for a bite and some brews, but it wouldnít be my goto place to hang out.
Came in on a late Thursday night after an exhausting day of beer drinking and basketball watching. Neat old theatre building, with a cool interior with wood and tiles accented by blue lighting. There was only one bartender working and only a few people at the bar. The beers are just okay. He talked us out of the sampler, which only gives you three of the beers on tap. Doesnít make for much sampling, and the price is too high. Looked like only 9 of the 12 taps were filled, which was odd. Prices were too high for drafts, too. We didnít eat, but the kitchen was probably closed by that point, anyway. Seems like a place with a lot of potential, so I wish the beer was a little better and they worked a little harder on the experience.
