A Barrel of Fun: Beer Barrel rolling into Dublin Green

614now Staff

Published

When it comes to pizza, for some people it’s NY- style slices or bust. For those triangle slice purists, one Ohio-grown company wants to make you a believer in the power of deep dish (and much, much more).

The aptly-named company Good Food Restaurants has announced the opening of the newest location of its Beer Barrel Pizza & Grill in Jerome Township at the new Dublin Green Shopping Center near Dublin, Ohio.

GFR is targeting a September 17, 2019 opening for this, the eighth location of the popular pizza and beer destination from the Lima, Ohio-based company, and the third in Central Ohio following the Hilliard and Easton restaurants.

The new location will occupy a 10,400-square-foot space with a 350 seat dining room, an outdoor dining patio, a carryout/pick up area, a full bar, private dining banquet room, and Beer Barrel’s new Bourbon Barrel Room concept.

For the uninitiated, Beer Barrel boasts a large and diverse menu of appetizers, salads, sandwiches, and entrees— but the real star is the signature scratch-made pizza.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

In addition to the large, family-friendly dining room that should be familiar to Beer Barrel regulars, a decidedly more adult concept will be on display at this location thanks to The Bourbon Barrel Room.

With over 100 bourbons, whiskies, ryes, and scotches, The Bourbon Barrel Room will offer craft cocktails in a “rustic and intimate” setting. The concept will also serve small plates (in addition to the full Beer Barrel Pizza & Grill menu). For fans interested in learning more about their favorite booze, The Bourbon Barrel Room will also host bourbon tasting events throughout the year.

“We’re thrilled with the opportunity to come to Joseph Skilken & Company’s Dublin Green,” said Good Food Restaurants President and founder John Heaphy in a press release. “Since first bringing Beer Barrel to the Columbus market in 2016, we’ve been so humbled by the outpouring of support we’ve received from the residents of the Columbus area. We’re very excited to continue growing in Central Ohio and we think the Dublin and Plain City area will love our vision of warm, family-friendly hospitality.”

If you’ve never tried it, you won’t want to miss Beer Barrel when it rolls into Dublin Green this September.

Making cocktails at home is hard—that’s a statement we won’t get much debate from with the drinkers at home. Maybe it’s the magic the bartenders in this city wield that make our drinks so damn delicious, or maybe it’s just our lack thereof. But sometimes all you need is a few tricks of the trade to become a master of your own home bar, and that’s where High Bank Distillery comes in.

Fresh from the still comes High Bank’s newest bottle release: Professor Rum. Stock & Barrel stopped by the facility, kitchen, and bar to see how we could concoct our very own cocktails at home with the rum. Here are three options for you to try. Or of course, just simply stroll down to HBD and have one of their cocktail wizards whip you up a delicious elixir.

1.5 oz. Vanilla Infused Professor Rum .75 oz. Demerara Simple Syrup
1 oz. Half and Half
2 oz. Fresh Orange Juice

Burger + Beer Week, presented by (614) Magazine and Ohio Beef Council, is your chance to enjoy $6 burgers and local beer specials at 75+ of Columbus’ top restaurants:

And thanks to our friends at Columbus Brewing Company, Seventh Son Brewing, Platform Beer Co - Columbus, and Land-Grant Brewing Company, you'll be able to greasily grab for a specially-priced pint to wash down your meal.

But, perhaps the best part of Burger + Beer Week is the opportunity to give back. Now through October 12, you can enter to receive dinner for four people at six Burger & Beer Week restaurants plus a craft beer gift package, with each unique entry equally a $0.25 donation to the Columbus Diaper Coalition!
