Ohio has some great attributes like Buckeye football and Cedar Point but our craft beer scene is where it’s at. We’ve got loads of breweries all over central Ohio, copious amounts of growler shops, or places to grab a pint, making us one of the best cities in the midwest for craft craft beer. Columbus Craft Beer Week is a drinking excursion to celebrate our local beer and brewing establishments. It begins this Friday, May 12, and will run through May 20.
What better way to raise your glass to beer makers and distributors than a big ol’ brewery crawl? Volume 3 of the Columbus Ale Trail will kick off this Friday. The idea is to get a stamp at every brewery you patronize in an effort to collect all 37 stamps from all 37 C-bus breweries.
Participating breweries include:
Actual Brewing Co, Barley’s Brewing Co, Brew Brothers, BrewDog Dogtap, Buckeye Lake Brewery, Combustion Brewery, Elevator Brewing Co (two locations), Four String Brewing Co (two locations), Gordon Biersch Brewery, Grove City Brewing Co, Hofbrauhaus Columbus, Homestead Beer Co, Hoof Hearted Brewery and Kitchen, Ill Mannered Brewing Co, Kindred Beer, Knotty Pine Brewing, Land-Grant Brewing Co, Lineage Brewing, Loose Rail Brewing, North High Brewing, Pigskin Brew Co, Platform Beer Co, Restoration Brew Worx, Rockmill Brewery (two locations), Seventh Son Brewing Co, Sideswipe Brewing, Smokehouse Brewing Co, Staas Brewing Co, Temperance Row Brewing Co, The Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Three Tigers Brewing Co, Wolf’s Ridge Brewing, Zaftig Brewing Co and Zauber Brewing Company.
Volume 3 Brew Books are available at any of the aforementioned breweries, free of charge. Prizes are awarded along the way depending on how many stamps you collect. We advise against visiting all 37 breweries in one week, though. Pace yourself because you have until April 30, 2018 to turn in your books. Drink up, C-bus!
