EXPERIENCE COLUMBUS LAUNCHES NEW INITIATIVES May 8, 2013
JOE BOCHERER HIRED AS EXPERIENCE COLUMBUS NEXT VP OF SALES March 26, 2013
Artisan Spirits and Microbrews
Locals are brewing great beers, including wheat beers, IPAs and full-bodied delicious Belgian-style ales using water from an on-premises source. Two award-winning micro-distilleries have opened for business in Columbus, too. Because of Middle West Spirits and Watershed Distillery, Columbus can now proudly serve its own vodkas, gins, whiskeys and, in 2013, bourbon.
Takin' it to the Streets
Columbus is on the leading edge of the hottest trend in the nation's culinary scene - food trucks. You'll find everything from artisanal grilled cheese sandwiches, including the $100 "Jackie O" (black truffle cheese, creme fraiche and caviar) and the $3 "Boarding School" (American on white) to exotic Japanese crepes and takoyaki (spherical pancake/dumpling Japanese snack food).
Carnivale in Columbus
One of the most talked about and highly anticipated Halloween events in the Midwest, Columbus' wildly popular Highball: Masquerade on High celebrates the art of design and masquerade. The signature focal point of HighBall is a dramatic runway/stage built on the street under the iconic glowing Short North arches.
