Cask, nitro, tap, Barley's and guest taps from all over the country; gotta love the place.

Decent pub grub and dinner food; enjoyed the mussels with my IPA from a firkin. This place has been around since the 90s and brings back memories of playing in their basement back in the day.

If you are ever in town swing by, order some sauerkraut balls, and order a Barley's pint; you won't be disappointed. The staff is friendly and knowledgable and it's very easy to find. It's even within walking distance from Elevator where you can spoil yourself with Columbus' outstanding suds' offerings.

This place looks like it has been around since the 90s's. I assume that's the case. It's right next to the convention center and I assume the hockey arena is nearby as well, so it was quite busy when I was there. Lots of Coors Light drinkers. Lots. The one beer I had was very tasty and the food was way above average. (Thanks to my host for the recommendation.) A worthy visit, though seems stuck in the past on decor.

Great spot if you're at convention center you can just walk across street and get a good beer and sandwich instead of convention food. They're in entertainment book so cheap price w on line /smart phone coupon

This has been one of my go-to breweries since I got into craft beer a few years ago. Their beer is above average compared to most of the breweries in the area, but rarely anything that will "knock your socks off".. they always have a couple good options and there's always something for even the most novice beer drinker. The food is always excellent and service is great. If they are brewing, you can request to go down and talk to the brewers. Nice view of the brewery (in basement) from the bar area as well.
