A co-worker and I cut out of our conference at the convention center at 4:00 to get to Bodega before the happy hour rush. We sat down at the last open table at 4:20 and the place was standing room only from there on out...and this was on Monday.

The beer selection is pretty much as good as you can get for high quality micros. I tried to stick with lower ABV session beers and went with Souther Tier Eurotrash Pils ($2.50), Weasel Boy Scotch Ale ($2.25), and Brooklyn Maple Porter ($2.75).

My buddy, who can not drink, had the plate of thee fish tacos for $9. I had one and it was very tasty. Lots of other tempting small plates on the menu.

Yes, I did a double take and made some verbal proclamation about $2 craft beers. It is too good to be true.

I didn't pay much attention to the hipster element. Had a seat by the window and a table of cute college girls next to us. No need to focus on hip dudes.

The server was efficient and thorough to the point she went back to the bar to get me a note from the bar of what was no longer and now on tap.

I met some other Columbus beer people during my visit to town and they rolled their eyes and complained about how crowded it gets at Bodega. If you plan to get there early, it's a great destination at the best value I've found in my extensive beer travels.

Nice place. They always have tons of great beer options, limited brews and stuff I haven't heard of. Also, a nice small seating area outside, facing the walk-by traffic, which I like. I haven't tried their food, so cannot comment on that side of things.

Great spot. Knowledgeable friendly staff. Huge selection with some really great limited stuff on tap and turning over constantly. High end pub grub type food done very well.
