Cool little joint in the middle of Clintonville. Speaking of Clintonville, this is THE area for craft beer in Columbus; besides Crest, there is Weilands, Savor, Studio 35, Pace High and probably more I can't think of right now. Visit this area if you're driving through Columbus and need some good beer.
The tap list at Crest is fantastic. I'm sure they take pride in having beers that nobody else has in Columbus. Jackie O's Oil of Aphrodite !? - yes please!
One negative (or positive depending on how you look at it) - a bit pricey. You won't see college kids coming here to get drunk on Bud Light, and that's always a good thing.

The Crest Gastropub needs to be on your must visit list if you are visiting Cbus and love craft beer. The place is small but a wonderful atmosphere and great service, the food was just wonderful. My glass was empty very little, and wish I would have more time ti visit!

If you are in the Columbus area and enjoy drinking craft beer, this is the place you need to be.
I've been here 10+ times now, and the fact that they have at least 2 beers I've never heard of, multiple sours on seemingly all the time, and a vast array of small time breweries featured on their 20 Ohio handles never ceases to amaze me. The happy hour is awesome (half off drafts 3-7) and if you go on Sunday, all beer is half off 2-close! Makes for an affordable afternoon, even when you're sipping on Hoppin Frog BA Boris or Pannepot Reserva.
The food is of the same quality and perfect for the atmosphere the bar creates. Granted, it gets real busy for dinner, but it's well worth the wait. I'd try and find a seat at the bar if you're planning a trip.
They also host beer dinners on a monthly or bi-monthly basis, which can be a great way to spend you're time and money. They did a Jolly Pumpkin dinner recently that was literally out of sight. Well worth the $60 considering it's 5 courses/5 pairings. Def worth checking out.
