I stopped in before a Clippers game. Some reviews I read have described the atmosphere as that of a chain restaurant. I could see that. It didn't have the laid back casual atmosphere of some other brewpubs that I have gone to. The first thing I came upon was the bar. It is a rather large oval bar. They had five of their beers on tap. I seen Bud but quickly averted my eyes. I ordered a sampler (Bodhi, Columbus IPA, Summer Teeth). Bodhi and Columbus IPA are delicious. Summer Teeth was good.

I got a BLGT sandwich which was bacon, lettuce, and green tomato. It was a nice twist on a light sandwich. My friend and his boy got a pizza which they seemed to enjoy.

The service was fine. I would like to see a larger selection of beer. It's worth going to have the Bodhi and Columbus IPA, but many good beer bars carry these offering and have a larger selection. (863 characters)

Visited 7/06/15. Not at all crowded on the evening visited. Pleasant ambience, no loud music. A couple of different flights on the menu. I opted for the "Hop Heads" selection, which included Columbus' IPA and Pale Ale and Brew Kettle's White Rajah. Wait staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Will visit again the next time I'm in town. (340 characters)

One of the best breweries in Ohio. There beers are always good, and they have a great selection. Its located in a warehouse district looking area, and they have their own parking lot. The food is always good, and I believe they do source some local foods.
This place can get packed so check it out earlier in the evening, or try making a reservation. I highly recommend! (372 characters)
