The Brew Pub is located in downtown Columbus. Nice place to check out as there is not much else in the area. The pub has a typical rustic atmosphere with a military theme. Of Cousre Ft benning is just down the road. The brewpub has a nice selection of beers. Of the beers I ordered, the Golden Ale was decent and went well with the meal. Their wheat beer was good, but I enjoyed their IPA best of all. They have good pubgrub although their menu may be a bit extensive. Service was good. The Brewpub is worth another visit.

My family and I stopped by The Cannon for lunch this afternoon. This is a large restaurant/brew pub located in a nice revitalized part of downtown Columbus. Very nice atmosphere that seems laid back and family frendly. Waitstaff was pleasant and attentive. Beer selection looked good with a nice variety of styles. I only had the IPA which was decent. Food was average pub fare, but good. Nice place to hang out.

Previous review (6/22/2010):
This is a very nice establishment in downtown Columbus. The interior is all exposed brick. The brewery sits behind the bar on an elevation, and it just invites you to drink a beer. There is a nice information board where you can gather details about the beer they serve. Great Atmosphere.
Fortuneately for the beer drinker, the beer quality is top notch. While the food is good, it is not nearly at the level of the beer.
Service has been hit and miss in the past, however recently it has been much better, therefore I've given it a good rating.
Selection is 5-6 beers that they brew on premise. I'm not sure if they serve other beers, and I don't care. Afterall, why would you go to a microbrewery to drink other brewer's beers.
Food is typical pub fare, nothing standout, but as stated it is not on par with the beer.
I've had most of their beers over the years, and have not been disappointed with any of them.

Cool old building . The place caters to and has a distinctively military feel to it. Very male. It's great to have a brewpub in Columbus, and their beer is OK. Nothing on the menu for a vegetarian besides beer. It gets pretty loud in the evenings, but in a good way.

The place is small, but comfortable and friendly. The wife and I stopped over for a few beers after a Bela Fleck concert at the Columbus Theater. Its walking distance from a lot of other attractions. The girl behind the bar was super friendly, and it was a quite atmosphere where it was comfortable to talk to others. Got to give extra points to the bartender because I realized I left my ID there and they had it ready for me the next day when I came back.
I had the sampler flight. I didn't really care for any of them. The one I decided to get a glass of was the Red Jacket Ale. It was similar to Killians. The stout was ok too. All of it was drinkable, but I wasn't impressed.
The food was good. I had a Monte Christo with a raspberry sauce/jelly. Very good.
Its the only brew pub in Columbus. Its comfortable and fun. I suggest stopping by if you're in town, but don't get hyped about the beer. The atmosphere and service is great though.

Stopped in on a Tuesday night after work and was pleasantly surprised. I sat at the bar in the back by the brewing equipment and fermentors where just a few locals were hanging out and chatting with Laura the bartender. The atmosphere was casual and relaxed. The locals were friendly, the beers were decent and the food was good.
The selection of house drafts was typical: A pale ale, an IPA, a golden ale, a wheat beer, a stout, a red, an Imperial IPA (I think) clocking in at 8% and even a root beer. I started with the Special Ops IPA and was impressed with the balance and drinkability of it. I followed this with the Red Jacket Ale, which again was a nicely balanced and drinkable beer with a pleasant malt profile.
For dinner I ordered the Chicken Bayou, a spicy fried chicken breast topped with creamed spinach, shrimp and a bit of andouille sausage. I cleared my plate and was full when finished.
Columbus doesn't have many options when it comes to craft beers, but the Cannon Brew Pub is an oasis of good local folks, food and brews. I will certainly return when back in the area.
