A co-worker and I cut out of our conference at the convention center at 4:00 to get to Bodega before the happy hour rush. We sat down at the last open table at 4:20 and the place was standing room only from there on out...and this was on Monday.

The beer selection is pretty much as good as you can get for high quality micros. I tried to stick with lower ABV session beers and went with Souther Tier Eurotrash Pils ($2.50), Weasel Boy Scotch Ale ($2.25), and Brooklyn Maple Porter ($2.75).

My buddy, who can not drink, had the plate of thee fish tacos for $9. I had one and it was very tasty. Lots of other tempting small plates on the menu.

Yes, I did a double take and made some verbal proclamation about $2 craft beers. It is too good to be true.

I didn't pay much attention to the hipster element. Had a seat by the window and a table of cute college girls next to us. No need to focus on hip dudes.

The server was efficient and thorough to the point she went back to the bar to get me a note from the bar of what was no longer and now on tap.

I met some other Columbus beer people during my visit to town and they rolled their eyes and complained about how crowded it gets at Bodega. If you plan to get there early, it's a great destination at the best value I've found in my extensive beer travels.

Went to this location while in town for my nephew's wedding. Was motivated by the BA review.
Must have gone to almost 15 places during my weeks visit to the Capital city. This was my overall # 1 place in the Capital City. Went there three times, and every time was great !
Ambiance, Beer selection, personnel and cuisine were superb. Only complaint: the Din gets to be very loud on busy days. Superb Facility !

Have been here a couple of times, once in the early afternoon with my son and once for dinner with a buddy, both visits have been very enjoyable. First time was just there for the beer. They have a really great selection, a lot of good brews that are a bit out of the mainstream in terms of similar selections say at a Yardhouse or similar establishment. If you are a real craft beer hound a definite place to stop. Wait staff was knowledgeable and friendly and prompt; all good things. Second time came for dinner and beer; once again great beer selection and some great suggestions from our waitress. I was pleasantly surprised by how good the food was. From a price standpoint not disappointed at all felt there was value for the dollar.

I was on a biz trip to Columbus - my 1st visit there- and made the impressive discovery of the Short North and this superb establishment. I consider a trip to be a resounding accomplishment when uncovering a place like this one; it's like a crowning achievement and Bodega provided me such a experience. I was there on a very busy Friday and after a brief wait, landed a seat at the bar and made my way through Bodega's rich and deep beer list. There are too many to list here; let's just say if you can't find a suitable pint among their offerings, you never will anywhere else. I had Great Lakes' outstanding Monster and several from Michigan's Dark Horse: the Crooked IPA with Citra and the FF Eert Dekoorc. Splendid in all respects. From the food menu, I opted for their Chef's Salad, which was a very tasty and inventive concoction of strawberries, blueberries and walnut in a citrus dressing. The service and staff are both beer-centric and friendly; I can't wait until my return trip to Columbus which will certainly include a stop @ Bodega!
