Been here a bunch of times as my friend lives in the area and frequents often. Good selection of draft beers along with two casks and a decent bottle list. Beers are mostly served in standard 16 ounce pint glasses or 10 ounce goblets depending on ABV. Small brewery in-house that usually has a couple offerings on draft and occasionally cask, including collaborations with popular microbreweries. They don’t list beer prices which is a bit weird. Would be nice if they did 4-6 ounce pours. Food is pretty good though a bit pricy, pizzas and sandwiches are some favorites. They have some nice lunch/dinner specials and there’s only a few food items I wouldn’t order again. No happy hour specials as far as I can tell. Parking can fill up during busy hours but they have free valet service and street parking.
Open, modern sports bar design with tables and a large bar filling up all of the floor space. Service is pretty good and seems to be familiar with what’s on tap. Selection is often very good and they regularly feature brewery tap-takeovers. One downside for me is the inability to order sample sizes as I feel that cuts down on the number of beers I can try in one visit. Varied food menu and everything I’ve tried has been good. Overall a solid place for some good beers.
Great craftbeer bar...worth a detour if not in Columbia. I love the electronic beer menu on the wall. This is a casual sports bar that allows you to try a very large variety of top quality beers. Food is bar food...but very good nonetheless. Overall the place has a very new and clean look. Definitely check it out.
I love this place! Amazing selection of beers, including overseas brews that you won't find on draft anywhere else in the area. They also keep their beer list up to date online, so you can check out their current selection ahead of time - or on your phone at the bar.
Frisco has a great menu too - it's worth pointing out that they have some really good vegetarian options, as well as standard bar food. If you're vegetarian, I'm sure you know it's kinda rare to find a bar with several veggie-friendly choices on the menu, so this place is well worth a visit. Try the tofu pad thai!
Only thing to watch out for is the cost - the drinks can get pricey (especially the European beers), so just keep that in mind if you're running a tab.
Drove here after our tour at Heavy Seas Brewery. Somewhat out of the way but worth the trip. Sizable sports bar with tons of taps. Our waitress pointed out the most current drafts menus is available on our smartphones, nice! I got 2 beers and the chicken sandwich. All were very good. Their in-house brews are worth a try, better then expected. Will come back if in the area again.

Large sports bar. They had a few interesting things when I stopped by. Food was decent, service was just OK. Convenient stop while traveling between Baltimore and DC.
A pretty open, modern sports bar cum beer mecca with a ton of TVs and a large digital taplist that changes pretty quickly. Tap list is updated instantly online so no need to squint at the video screen- just pull it up on your phone. When I was there it was sort of a Dogfish Head tap takeover unfortunately but was able to get De Molen, Troegs Scratch series, some odd Italian and British stuff. Lots of variety. Prices were pretty good...about $7-$8 for the special tap beers. Food was very good- fries were awesome. Buffalo burger with bleu cheese was awesome. Food was priced a little beer than the beer. Our meal for two people was $60, a little high, but would have been $28 without the beer. Granted, my girlfriend ordered something fancy off the bottle list. My biggest pet peeve though is the tap list along with the bottle list HAVE NO PRICES! Seriously...what is up with that noise?
A nice, neighborhood bar in Columbia with 50 taps of excellent quality beers. The prices can be high but happy hour knocks a dollar off per draft. The server was great, and knew enough to make some excellent suggestions to my non-beer geek friend. The appetizer we had was really nice (chorizo cheese dip).
