Top notch craft brewery. Always a stop when I am in town. It's a cut above normal bar food. Friendly staff. The beer though is amazing. I would love it if they distributed to Dayton. Actually they should just open another beer pub in the house next door to me.

I pull right up to this spacious parking lot and get a front row parking spot, which is great, because there doesn’t seem to be much parking in the city, but maybe I’m just clueless. The bartender was very helpful serving me a sample flight. It was only $4.75 and contained 7 beers in 3 oz ampler glasses. Those were: Ohio Honey Wheat, Apricot Ale, Pale Ale, 90 Schilling, Columbus 1859 Porter, Columbus IPA & Keller Lager. The building is spacious and clean with nicely painted walls and a modern décor. Bright red bar top is sexy and wood trim is nice too. There is outdoor seating but I chose the indoor A/C. The top shelf liquors are suspended above the bartenders’ heads. Nice touch. I really liked the spray deodorant, hair gel, mousse, etc. that they keep in the bathroom to freshen up, if you say, had to go back to work after your lunch hour.

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.

This has become my favorite restaurant here in Columbus. I've been here twice so far and have really enjoyed myself both times. The beers are generally good, although not outstanding. The food is excellent and pairs well with the food. Last night, for instance, I had an excellent pot roast with a pint of their tasty 1859 Porter. Their Apricot Ale is extremely fruity but good. The IPAs that I've tried have been merely ok. Their Oktoberfest was decent. I actually tried that along with their rare tuna appetizer, one of the few items I don't actually recommend there. I look forward to more visits in the future!

I've been to CBC many times while living in Columbus. Great brewery, good food. I'd recommend sitting @ the bar. Service is much more prompts and you get me of a description of the beers. Lunch can get busy at times, but there isn't much of a dinner rush during the week. Weekends depends on what is going on in the area.

This review comes after two stops over a seven year time period.

After tasting some of their massively hopped beers at the Cincinnati winter beer fest a couple days prior to being in town, I made it a point to stop by again.

Sat at the bar with a non-drinking co worker. I began with the beer flight which had a helles, pale, bock, IPA, IPA x 2, IPA x 3, and a seasonal stout.

All beers were very well made and I came back to the beautifully fresh and clean IPA as I didn't want to bury myself with the double and trippel IPA.

Buddy and I snaked on the nachos and quesidilla which were both very tasty.
