Enjoy Columbus' brewery scene by hopping around the Brewers Row corridor downtown. These slew of breweries are all within about a mile of the Greater Columbus Convention Center. You can also hop on the free CBUS downtown circulator!
Start at the north end at North High Brewing. North High Brewing (1) combines a sporty vibe, with lots of screens and decor made from reclaimed redwood bleachers from Ohio Stadium, with a huge variety of beers, including the Milk Stout, a favorite. Zaftig Brew Pub (2) originated in Worthington, but recently opened a brew pub in Italian Village serving full bodied ales and American pub fare.
One of Columbus' newest breweries, BrewDog has three locations, one of which is on Brewers Row. Check out BrewDog Short North (3) for some of the city's best craft beer. Featuring genre-busting beers with a focus on experimentation, the Humulus Numbus Super Pale Ale is a standard at Seventh Son Brewing (4), and the Scientist IPA is a constantly changing experimental IPA. With two great patios and a rotating cast of food trucks, this has become the nightlife hotspot. Hoof Hearted Brewpub and Kitchen (5) has a bright and swanky modern space and tasty food. Their Farmhouse IPA is a standout.
Barley's Brewing Company (6), is one of the first breweries to open in Columbus, has hearty pub fare and specializes in Scottish Ales and the fun Firkin Fridays, where small batch beers are tapped. From one of the oldest, to one of the newest, Platform Beer Co. (7) offers a sprawling industrial-chic taproom serving a rotating selection of craft beer.
Wolf's Ridge Brewing (8) pairs a culinary adventurous restaurant with a sunny tap room and delicious range of beers, including the Clear Sky cream ale and Dire Wolf, a Russian imperial stout.
