Columbus has a nice little brewery district. Unfortunately I only had time to check out one of them, but Seventh Son came highly recommended by a handful of locals.

It's a long and fairly shallow structure, like an old mechanic shop. The interior is minimal and glassy, with long wooden tables and stools. The feel is faux rustic, what the kids meaninglessly call "DYI," which has plenty of aesthetic charm but limited usability. The crowd definitely fit into the hipster aesthetic, too, which is weird because after spending time in lager cities I thought that trend was dying out. Anyhow, yeah, the bartenders all have beards and can be a little snippy, but it was nowhere near as snooty or pretentious as, say, Three Floyds, or most of the other breweries that try to project a Metal vibe.

Put it this way: there's a banquet room off to the side and a late-twenties Pinterest-looking woman was having her bridal shower there. I got nothing against such a vibe--it worked quite well, actually, as I was traveling with my in laws--but if you're an excessive normie or pine for some kind of phantasmal "authenticity" in your breweries, you might not like it.

The beer was very good, borderline excellent. Wide variety of styles and strengths and quite reasonably priced. They also have a bar fully stocked with liquors that were either artisanal or simply just obscure. There's lots of outdoor seating, too.

Neighborhood brewery with taproom. They brew a good variety of beers, especially for their size. On an August 2018 visit they had 12 beers on tap, with some of these and some additional brews available in cans or bottles. No food but on-site food trucks are common.

Pretty spacious place with an upstairs roof top bar that can be fully closed if it is too hot or cold. For a brewery mostly known for their IPAs they had a surprisingly diverse tap list from a German smoked beer to a Belgian Quad. The beer was really good across the board and they had a kveik IPA on tap that I loved. The service was superb and the bartender was very knowledgeable. Easily would go back to this place.

Great beer beer venue with plenty of seating inside and out. Rotating food trucks nightly and patio fire pit for those cool Ohio evenings. Excellent IPAs. My favorite is Proliferous. A very smooth DIPA. Soooo good. Great place to hang out and chill. Also enjoy their weekly Firkins. Nice selection of Seventh Son t-shirts, glassware too.

Made a quick stop at Seventh Son. Very small parking lot which was full at 4:00 on a Saturday afternoon. Found a spot on the street. I had an IPA, and the wife a stout, both were well above average. No food that I saw. Nice outdoor area which we took advantage of on a 60 degree February day. Will set aside more time for this place on our next Columbus trip.

This is a trendy pretty chill spot for or all ages with a moderate sized bar, patio space, large windows and a sizeable private room for parties and events.

They have a good amount of beer on tap but most of it consists of IPAs and Farmhouse brews. The range isn't a drastic swing from one end to the other but there are a few unique brews and all are of a consistent, good quality, and quite beautiful in appearance if I may add.

They also do tons of cocktails with a huge liquor selection. While the cocktail list looks small, it definitely isn't if you know what you want and are leaning away from beer. They also seem to offer to plop a touch of one of their alcoholic slushies on top of one of their IPAs for a cold, fruity, unique concoction.

No food, but it seems they pretty consistently have a food truck. This time was Challah, a Jewish deli truck. Staff is enthusiastic yet unobtrusive.
