Really great ambiance and atmosphere! I sampled a number of different beers and most were better than I expected. Servers were friendly and helpful. This is on my to-do list whenever I visit Columbus.

The decor is modern and pleasant and the vibe is trendy. I tried a 5 beer sampler paddle that incuded an American IPA, English IPA and an oat brown ale. The beer overall was good but nothing remarkable.

I did feel that the bar staff ignored you if you weren't a local. One server kept ignoring me until I flagged him down and the one with the overgrown beard was too busy socialising with the female server to serve anyone so the service wasn't great.

Bottom line - if you are in the area and want a beer, this place is worth checking out.

A little disappointed that they were storing their 750mls for sale next to the window in direct sunlight, and that their staff is a bit 'selective' in the customers that they serve first, but the beer is nothing short of excellent, and the establishment as a whole is beautiful. One of my favorite bars in Columbus.

Great looking spot! Totally hipstered out. Which in this case doesn't really bother me too much, since it looks so nice. Nice selection of beers and what I had was good. Service was total hipster as well. I assume expecting a smile would be asking too much. Food trucks are always here, which is a good thing. This is probably a must-visit when in Columbus. It was my final stop on a quick beer trip through Ohio and Indiana and I am glad I wrapped up the beerings here.

Trendy beer spot. Nothing here will blow your mind, but it's not a bad place to hang out and drink a few decent beers with a small or large group. Be wary if you're meeting for a trade, the bar tender freaked out when I brought a few bottles in and made me trade outside. Lol, understandable I suppose.

Stop # 444 on my world brewery tour.

Very nice space with ok beers. I'm gonna be way under the average on this one...might have been an off night or need more out of towners to review.

Had a flight with the super pale ale, golden ratio IPA, American Strong Ale, Cask Citra/Sirachi/Simcoe, and a DIPA.

The pale was very nice and what I would recommend. The others came across as syrupy with improper attenuation. With Columbus Brewing making exceptional IPA's, the bar is high in Columbus.

Jew-"ish" food truck had wonderful Kosher-style food. So much that I tracked down the chef to talk brisket.

Fantastic atmosphere with two of the city's best patios, an open and airy main bar room, and a very nice back room/party room. The beer is dependably delicious and sometimes elite. My only knock is the service. Many of the bartenders seem like they've been hired because they have a certain look rather than because they know how to bartend. Nonetheless, most are friendly. Always one of the places I take out of towners to show them how cool Columbus can be.

The Seventh Son taproom is a must visit, especially for nice weather. With plenty of outdoor seating, and a rotating food truck schedule this place would be hard to beat on a weekend afternoon. Just a short walk from the Short North, easy to fit into any trip downtown.

The old tire shop has a couple of large garage doors that open up to a couple of patios in front and in back of the taproom. Bar tenders were friendly and service was fast. They have a fairly wide selection of beers from hoppy to malty, so shouldn't be hard to find something for everyone.

Beers are all high quality, although they only have their own on tap they have a good selection. Lots of other things around too (full bar, plus a good grape soda if that is your thing). Highly recommended.

The wife and I stopped at Seventh Son before an epic Arcade Fire at the nearby Schottenstein Center. This is, by far, our favorite beer place in Columbus (we haven't checked out the new Bodega, though).

A spacious garage building with open doors, a patio, plenty of light, nice large wooden tables, beautiful all around. On a nice sunny day, it was beyond perfect.

They have seven house taps plus two guests (Columbus Brewing and Great Lakes). During our visit, they were offering an Oat Brown, Pale Ale, Black IPA, Strong Ale, Imperial Stout and some others. Also wine, cocktails and quality spirits at fair prices.

No food but they have a food truck parked at their lot every day. Service is good, even though the place can get packed and busy easily.

Beautiful all around, good memories!
