I first had ZwanzigZ at the GTMW two years ago. If you go to the Great Taste don't miss them. Their beers and food are very solid. I honestly haven't had a beer from them that was bad. Some are better than others of course but very quality beers overall. They also have a nice selection of normal stuff, adjuncts, and barrel aged beers. The pizza is very good too. I have driven from Indianapolis to Columbus solely to go to ZwanzigZ, so yes if you are anywhere near Columbus, IN, check it out. Lastly, the prices are very reasonable.

More of a pizza place feel than a brewery, but the pizza is good, the better half of the brews are better. Nothing to dislike about this place. Great for a pie and a pitcher (or two) with family or friends - this place puts some class into my home state of Indiana. Come here. Give it a shot and take a growler home. I hope this one never dies. I will be back many times.

A brewpub that might be more popular for it's pizza, but the beer is the real star. A lot of funky styles and the bartender was awesome and was engaging even though he had to pour 25 flight glasses for the group beside me. Columbus is a small town, so they had some regulars, which I don't usually see on my brewery trips. Great spot in a surprisingly great beer town. Also, the pizza is fantastic.

My wife and I finally had the opportunity to visit here last week while we were in town visiting my parents for Thanksgiving (I am formerly from the Columbus area). We left this establishment wondering why we didn't stop here sooner on earlier trips home to Columbus. Personally, this place hit both of us on all levels ... my wife loves pumpkin beers and their pumpkin beer hit right in the upper tier of enjoyable pumpkins and I have to agree with her, it was well brewed. For me, I love barrel aged beers and we must have visited at the right time because there were four barrel aged beers on tap at one time which is very unusual for any brewery, especially a nano like ZwanzigZ - impressive. (And so were the beers.) We sat at an isolated table in the bar area and thought for sure we would be forgotten like "out of sight out of mind". NOT the case. The bar area was very busy and she was still checking on us every (10) minutes, blown away (and we tipped extra because the service was absolutely impressive). And best yet, the pizza was outstanding.

Being a beer geek and a love of pizza, if I lived in Columbus, this place would be a regular destination. Great pizza. Great beer. Great service. Cool vibe. Not overpriced. What more do you want?

All around great pizza and good beer! I'm personally a fan of the chocolate/blueberry mixed or the chocolate/nut brown ale!

Outsanding food and beer. A mid-October motorcycle ride took us to this place which we found on Yelp! What a great choice. Started out with a waitress-suggested Italian hoagie which was incredible and, at $4.99, a fantastic bargain. My wife and I ate in the bar and were able to sample a half-dozen of their 15 home-brewed beers. A great time of year to try the place as we love the fall offerings, especially the Pumpkin and Oktoberfest, which were excellent. Loved the Imperial Stout and most of all, the Bourbon Barrel Scotch Ale and Nut Bown Ale. Very friendly staff, including Jaime, our beertender. Got to speak with the brewmaster who talked about his career and his beer. Great day, and we will make the trip often in the future. Cheers!

Very good place to drink beer while having a good dinner. Some of the best calzones that I have ever had. Great pizza too. Nice varied selection of beer to go along with a good menu. Not a huge menu, but very sufficient. Vegetarian options, if desired, are readily available.

I went to Zwanzigz today with three friends - all of whom had been here before. One is a Columbus, IN native and has gotten to be good friends with the owner and head brewer. Really nice people who are making a damn fine product. Their barrel aged beers are amongst the finest I've had anywhere. Today I had the barrel aged versions of their old ale, barley wine, scotch ale and cherry stout. The old ale and barley wine were absolutely money. The brewer (Mike) honed his chops at Goose Island and he certainly knows what he's doing. He also hooked me up with a small sample of his ghost pepper stout...unreal. Do yourself a favor and get to this's awesome and very reasonably priced!

A must stop for any person appreciates GREAT beers. From a chocolate ale to their IPA served with fresh home grown hops you won't find a better brew in Indiana. We sampled the Ghost Chili stout...oh my you wouldn't believe how good this was, spciy not hot!
The brewmaster is very passionate and this always goes a long way towards the quality of the end product and anyone who grows their own hops has my nod of approval.
Located in Columbus Indiana makes it close to Interstate 65 and 30 minutes south of Indianapolis IN.
