Monday Suds: When in Rome

Or in my case, Ohio, drink as the Ohioans do.  Our lovely hosts (the Husband’s family) had stocked the fridge with local craft beer that piqued my interest.  Whenever we travel, we usually have to find time to at least stop at one local watering hole.  On this trip, we managed to fit in two different local favorites.

Columbus Brewing Company

Colubus Brewing

Our first stop of the day was Columbus Brewing Company.  We had just had lunch so unfortunately we weren’t able to try the food this time around.  I started looking at the beer menu.  There was a handful of choices that I was ready to try.  Then our server stopped by our table and I was told that there were only two beers on tap, the award winning Pale Ale and an IPA.  Both were pretty good but I couldn’t taste too much of a difference between the two.  Maybe I should have tried the coffee like the other end of the table!

The space was great and so was the service so when I am back in Columbus, we will be stopping by to see what else we can get on tap.  Find them on Twitter and Facebook to find out more!

Elevator Brewing Company

Before we headed back to the house, we stopped in at the Elevator.  This business added a brewery in 1999 to their already very busy business.  When we stopped in, there were a few seats at the bar but the restaurant was booked solid!  Apparently a restaurant to check out next time.  Anyone been here?  Any good?

I think I could have sat at Elevator all night just to look at the building.  It has incredible original architecture, a beautiful bar, and a tin ceiling that was incredible.  Between the beer, the smell of the incredible steak dinners going out, and the beautiful setting I would have to list this as one of my favorite stops in Columbus.
