Columbus Microbrew Festival

Posted on September 13, 2008


Friday night Liz, Stefan, and I attended the 3rd Annual Columbus Microbrew Festival. Brewerys represented included Barley’s Brewing Company (Ale House No. 1), Barley’s Smokehouse & Brewpub (Ale House No. 2), Columbus Brewing Company, Elevator Brewing Company, Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant, Hoster Brewing Company and Weasel Boy Brewing Company. Representatives from each microbrewery were on hand to pour samples of their signature drafts.

Some favorite brews that I sampled included:

– Dortmunder Style Pilsner – Hoster Brewing Company

– Kolsch – Weasel Boy Brewing Company

– Centennial IPA – Barley’s Brewing Company

– Marzen – Gordon Biersch Brewery

– Dark Horse Lager – Elevator Brewing Company

The Festival was very well attended and there were lines at each booth. It was a great success and it gave me some hope that people here in Columbus are actually interested in some new types of beer.
