Odd tap list at the time of visiting, no flights, but the bartender let us all get a sip of almost every beer so we could make the right decision for a full pour. Sat at the bar to eat, the bartender was great helping us pick beers and making recommendations.

Stopped for lunch at 101 on our way to Columbus. Located at the end of a strip mall off Sawmill Rd. Plenty of parking.

Beer list was impressive, albeit pricey, both on draft, and in bottles. They also had 5-6 mead selections. I had a Nugget Nectar.

Food was very good, but also a little pricey. We each had a salad, and they were very interesting, and well done.

Worth a stop.

Travis is an awesome waiter and very knowledgeable of the food and beers. All the staff was friendly. Great selection of food and more importantly beer.

V-101 Beer Kitchen is located in a strip-mall-type complex in suburban Dublin outside of Columbus. Inside, the decor is kind-of industrial chic with exposed brick and wood and some steel. It is a pretty good sized space with a smaller bar in the center and restaurant seating surrounding the bar. It feels more like a restaurant than a bar and crowd reflects that.

Q-The beers on tap are a nice mixture of craft from Ohio and elsewhere, including a few imports. The bottle list is solid and includes a good array of Belgians and some standard craft offerings. Things tasted fresh and clean.

Ser-The bartender was knowledgeable about the beers he was serving and was prompt in serving them. He gave off a little beer-snob vibe, but if you are headed to a place called 101 BEER Kitchen, I guess you can expect some of that. Beers were served in proper glassware and at the right temperature.

Sel-The bottle list is solid and the draft list has maybe 15 options, but I was not blown away. I didn't see anything on the list that wasn't available in a good bottle shop. Even the sports bar down the street had a few more seasonal offerings that 101. That being said, the list is good and you can certainly find something worth drinking.

O-I could have used a little more oomph in the beer list, but I liked 101 Beer Kitchen and would come back to try the food, which looked great.

Ladies, If you enjoy tasting beer, DO NOT GO. You will be put into "your place" by the bar staff.

Here is a link to my review on yelp. I have never been treated so rudely by a bartender.

The wife and I were going to Kihachi, the best Japanese restaurant in Ohio and possibly the entire United States (I kid you not), and I was looking for a place to kill time before our dinner reservation.

101 Beer popped up on my phone and I'm glad it did. This wasn't around when we lived in Dublin a couple of years ago! Located in a suburban plaza off of Sawmill Road, it is not so easy to find from the main road.

Spacious and generic inside, but it's got a nice beer menu with 19 taps divided in styles (Seasonal/Belgium/Malts/Hops): Jackie O's, Catawba, Buckeye, Left Hand, Two Brothers, Founders, Columbus Brewing and a bunch of Germans and Belgians.

A bit pricey! The better beers are seven-nine dollars, and few are served in a 16-oz glass. They offer growlers, a good selection of bourbons and better-than-average food (which we didn't try, obviously). They throw cool events also, such as a "barrel-aged brunch".

The clientele is a bit too suburban-golf-playing-white-blonde-type, but the joint is cool enough. Good beer and great service. Definitely will check it out again.
