Went here alone on business. Crowded night but not overwhelming. Really enjoyed it, but in nearly every aspect there was a "but" statement. The environment was intimate and expansive at the same time...BUT the image they are trying to project is muddled by formica-looking countertops on the bar, which projects a weird Arby's image. Service was knowledgeable and helpful... BUT once I had bellied up to the bar it took way too long for someone to take my initial order. There were some wonderful, and I mean wonderful beers on tap: Columbus, Super Fresh H.O.P, and most of all Bodhi, one of the best beers in the country....BUT, those are all IPAs, and everything not IPA was quite pedestrian. 8-10 CBS beers on tap....BUT no guest beers whatsoever. That was a bummer.Food was delicious - stroganoff pasta, interesting modernized take on the standby and the 'tizers ordered by people around me looked tasty as well....BUT $16 was a bit much, and contributed to my overall sticker shock. Did not expect a flight, a tulip, and noodles to run $32.

I had a great time and if I keep coming to Columbus, I shall return without question. Overall the Buts keep CBC from being great, but it is a very good joint. (1,205 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)
