This is one of those small breweries worth stopping at if you happen to ever find yourself thirsty while walking down the sidwalk out front of the bar. It will do the trick if you're looking for a basic beer or two, but it's not worth travelling to as any kind of destination brewery.

Their beers are mediocre-ly mediocre. They usually have a few of their own beers and some offerings from other breweries also, but still a fairly basic selection. Highly overpriced when compared to many other breweries (many better ones at that), and extremely overpriced if you're looking for something a little better than a run of the mill hefe or ipa. They upcharge SIGNIFICANTLY for their higher abv beers and other styles.

I have enjoyed their Portergeist, it's definitely the Zauber beer that I've liked the most.

Their staff seems attentive and smart. They also have a food window, but I didn't try it.

Zauber offers their own micro brews, along with 5 or 6 others on tap, usually Ohio-based beers. They are now serving food, which is a plus. The bathrooms are very clean!

Nice selection of different styles of ales mixed with a few guest taps and a nice selection of spirits. I was the first in the door so got excellent service and knowledge from the bartender who was friendly and helpful. Beers range in flavor profiles with some high notes. Nice local spot to hit in the Columbus area. Got our growlers and hit the road, but still was impressed for being open for such a short time.

Expect more good things from them with time and experience. Their glowing stars were the Portergeist and the Hefeweizen which were stunning and delicious.

Nice place. They have a mix of their own beers with guest taps. Additional local spirits available. Food handled by a food truck. A great place to visit
