Pick up a coffeecoffee trail card at any of the participating shops and buy a drink at four or more to claim your free Columbus Coffee T-Shirt. Four coffee stops may be a bit much for the day you're here, but all the more reason to bring your meeting to Columbus and your guests can experience it too!

Columbus beer scene is booming and the Columbus Ale Trail promotes the more than two dozen Central Ohio breweries. Visitors just need to pick up a copy of the Brew Book at participating locations or Experience Columbus Visitor Centers to earn stamps for trying local beers. The stops on the Ale Trail span throughout Columbus and many of them are located right downtown in Brewers Row, just a short walk from the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

In addition to the 25 local breweries, the Columbus region also has a couple of local distilleries including Watershed and Middle West Spirits, where you can tour and taste your way through their vodkas, bourbons and gins. Many local restaurants and bars mix up cocktails made with these local spirits. If you're looking for another option, there is also Brothers Drake Meadery featuring many seasonal meads, among other drinks. Currently, there are 3 different Cocktails and Coffee date options to choose from, which will provide a different event for you to experience while you're here.
