In my quest to visit every brewpub in North America, this was stop number 238.

I made a quick stop to Elevator on a trip through Columbus during a nasty snowsotrm in late February 08. One logistics problem I ran into was it's on a one-way south street and you can't turn left or right during busy traffic times. I had to go all the way to the south side of town before I pulled an *illegal* right to come back up and park (for free) at a meter spot two blocks W.

Logistics aside, I can say I have a very good experience at Elevator. I had their English IPA, samplers of the winter, cole porter, and dopplebock, and finished with a full imperial stout which was part of the master of beer appreciate offering. With the MBA, you get a card and have it punched each month or so for the MBA beer on tap. I fancy Russian imperial stouts and have to report back that they either gave me the regual stout or their imperial stout is equal to a regular stout. I'm certian I was clear about the imperial stout and it came from the nitrogen-looking tap so I'll go on record as saying it could have been more bold for this style. Overall the beers were all good. I ordered the wings and split the sauces and they were very good.

The atmosphere is worth the trip alone. It's an old pre-prohibition building that has been restrored to period condition. A very critical person could say it needs a little detail and cleaning work, but in a city that is homogonized by chains, I can't complain.

My closing remark is the Columbus is fortunate to have Elevator and Barley's within walking distance to each other. I give Barley's a slight nod for beer and they are both worth visiting.
