Returned from this place a few hours ago. Discovered it here on BA. Thanks for the reference!

As I parked across the street and walked toward this place I saw about 6 outdoor tables and this day it was 65 degrees out and sunny. Just about all 24 seats were taken and I was pleased to see (I was waiting for traffic to thin out before I reached it) that everyone appeared to have a different glass of some beer and that someone appeared to have a golden goblet of some kind. Well traffic thinned, I finished crossing the street and the "golden goblet" turned out to be a gold rimmed Stella Artois glass. Still very cool to see the proper glassware. I walked in to find lots of wood. The bar, the floor and several chairs were wood and many of the items were not "finished" but kind of a rustic wood look. I pulled up a black leather (I think that it is leather) bar stool and perused the menu. I recall New Holland Tulip, a Belgian Tripel I had not previously heard of, A Magic Hat Selection that I had not heard of before and even some local Columbus beers (an IPA if memory serves). There was a chalkboard with staff recommendations but many of those appeared to be from the extensive bottle list. The bartender was welcoming and informative, giving me plenty of time when I asked for it. I had arrived at about 4 15 pm and the happy hour there was written on a board outside as "half price beer 4 to 8 pm" so things were just getting underway I am sure. I did not have any food so no rating of that (I do not know if they even HAVE food to be honest but I do seem to recall now a kitchen?).

Notes: This is a real BA place, like a small Brick Store or even a Bier Markt in Cleveland. I will be back, that is for sure!

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.
