Their house beers are adequate, but not strong enough to draw me into this Arena District spot. The atmosphere is coldy corporate--I assume losing whaterver charm the original microwbrewery possessed. The food is mediocre and overpriced.
I can't muster a reason to ever go here. Even after a hockey game, one would be far better off going to Barley's, or even drinking Import drafts at Red Star Tavern or Anchor Steam on-tap at Ted's Montana Grill.
Though Columbus is not that populated by brewpubs, this is the last on the list.

The food here is great and you get a lot of decent atmosphere from Nationwide arena crowd. I frequent whenever I take in a Blue Jackets game myself. The only con is that they only serve their six house brews, but all of them were decent to impressive. I thought the Czech Pils was the best of their 6. Definitely recommend.

I have been here several times before and after Blue Jackets games. As I walk in there is a rectangular bar to the right with high top tables and booths around it. Straight ahead is the dining room and kitchen, which is open to view the cooking process. I have always sat at or around the bar.
It is very clean and modern looking. They had the six regulars on tap with the seasonal tap being a tripel. The regular beers are German styles, mostly lagers. The menu has a nice variety, pasta, pizza, seafood, steaks, sandwiches. My date and I both struggled to narrow our selection of food down to one dish each.
I settled and a pasta dish which wasn't the best meal that I have had there. My date seemed to enjoy her dish. The wait staff was very attentive. We had three people stop by during our visit to make sure we were getting what we needed.
This is a nice place to dine. The food is better than the beer selection. The beers are good but not enough variety for me. The location contributes to the frequency of my visits more than anything.

Atmsphere is nothing really special. Its your typical modern looking restaurant with a large bar and plenty of seating.
Service is also just like any other restaurant. It also appeared that the staff wasn't the most knowledgeable about their beer.
They focuse on lagers here and have 6 on tap. Apparently five of their beers are in their regular lineup and a seasonal handle. Apparently they have other beers too but they come in a bottle.
Food is pretty solid. A pretty large menu with quite a few options.
Overall, not a bad place, but I wouldn't call this the beer destination of the city.

I prefer Ales over Lagers, so GB locations are always the first place I want to visit in a town. My son had a root beer - good but bit sweet, my son didn't drink the whole glass.
I had the Maibock which was good, but seemed to have tastes that were inconsistent with they style.
However, I've never had better all around service, friendliness, attention to detail, I was only there for one beer but wish I could've stayed!
My son and I sat the bar and the wait staff took exceptionally god care of us - that alone will make us consider coming back!@
