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).
