I walked in with a friend on a weekday afternoon between Christmas and New Years only to find the place completely packed - a good sign. Rather than wait for a table, we decided to head over to the bar.

I didn't get a chance to really check out the entire restaurant, but I remember I loved the place; exquisite decorating, modern design, solid colors, straight lines and a relaxed yet modern atmosphere.

The menu had a lot of tempting options. I was debating between Cajun jambalaya, a pizza featuring smoked provolone, allouette, parmesan and goat cheese with fresh spinach and fire-roasted red peppers, and a soup, salad and chicken salad wrap combo. I chose the latter.

The soup and salad were delicious. The chicken salad wrap was decent. But thanks to their dedication to using fresh, local ingredients simply and effectively, the chicken and vegetable soup was some of the best soup I've ever had. And the salad featuring spinach, oven-dried tomatoes, toasted pine nuts, red onion, goat cheese and balsamic vinaigrette was simply divine.

The food here rocks.

And the beer ain't bad either.

My sampler consisted of an Apricot Ale, Pale Ale, 90 Shilling Scottish-style ale, 1859 Porter and an IPA. They were unfortunately out of their Christmas seasonal. Each beer was very true to style and extremely good. If I had to pick one, though, it would be the Pale Ale due to its floral notes, soft bitterness and balanced malt. It was refreshing.

The restaurant was packed and the bartender was having to deal with a lot more food orders than normal, but he did a decent job keeping up. And I wouldn't expect much banter since I was seated with a female friend, with whom I was having a long, in-depth conversation.

All in all, I would have to rate Columbus Brewing as the best brewpub in the city. I'd come here time and time again if I lived within 45 miles of the place.

Columbus Brewing. In short this is a very comfortable brew pub. The service was spot on very knowledgeable bartenders. The prices are reasonable related to the quality. In all honesty I could go here and drink nothing but Bodhi or Columbus IPA. That is saying something as IPA and DIPA are not my favorite beer styles. The food was good and priced reasonably. In short this is a great brew pub and I will stop to get more Bodhi.
