So many breweries, so little time, so few volunteers to drive your tipsy tush around, right? Wrong! Columbus, meet CBus Brew Bus: a new and refreshingly different way to experience the local craft brewery scene.

Andy Bachman, an Ohio State alum and Columbus beer enthusiasts, is on a mission to offer safe transportation, informative tours, and plenty of fresh beer to curious hop-heads. Guests can book buses to take them around to the following breweries:

  • Zaftig Brewing Co.
  • Parsons North Brewing Co.
  • Platform Beer Co.
  • Hoof Hearted Brewery & Kitchen
  • North High Brewing
  • Nocterra Brewing Co.
  • Combustion Brewery & Taproom

BROUGHT TO YOU BY

Upon arrival at the meeting place, each guests will receive a 6.75 ounce sample glass. At each stop, the sample glass is filled with sweet, sweet beer—3 samples of 3 different beers at each brewery.

But, the breweries are just one part of the CBus Brew Bus experience. Along the way, Bachman and his crew provide entertainment with trivia and factoids about the Columbus craft beer culture while you booze!

Private group tours for 8 or more are offered that include the option to customize pickup and drop off locations as well as choose the breweries you’d like to visit. All public tours (just you and a few friends), have predetermined stops with the pickup point starting at City Tavern, in the heart of downtown Columbus.

Condado Tacos open in select locations after closing its doors Tuesday

Condado Tacos is open once again after closing its doors to the public Tuesday following an employee walkout Monday night. Polaris and Clintonville locations remain closed until further notice.

Employees at the Polaris location walked out Monday after refusing to fulfill a catering order by the Ohio Highway Patrol, according to a press release from Condado Tacos Wednesday. The employees who walked out were given the opportunity to not work on the order, without repercussion, if they didn’t feel comfortable, according to a statement provided by Linda Powers, Condado Tacos director of marketing.

The order by the Highway Patrol was placed at the Condado Tacos Polaris location on the fifth-straight day of George Floyd protests in Columbus. Floyd’s death was ruled a homicide following an incident where a Minneapolis police officer placed deadly force on Floyd’s neck with his knee. The incident has sparked protests across the country, including Columbus.

After reaching out to Condado’s PR agency over email, the contact stated that their team has “parted ways” with the business. 

Wednesday’s statement by Condado says they “value different points of view,” but, “choosing not to serve a particular group, in this case law enforcement officers, in itself is discrimination and goes against our core values to welcome and serve everyone.”

Read the full statement here.

The End of the Road?

As the economic impacts of COVID-19 continue, we are beginning to see the effects take their toll on Columbus eateries. Here's a list of some of the changes taking place.

The Sycamore+Cosecha Cocina  

Grow Restaurants, the company which owns Harvest Pizza, has listed The Sycamore and Cosecha for sale. While there hasn't been confirmation that the restaurants won’t make a reappearance in some form, Chris Crader stated in Columbus Underground, “It’s a lot of work to re-open after the pandemic and we have a considerable amount of interest in these two properties so it doesn’t make sense to open and then close again so quickly.”

Miller's Ale House

Both Miller’s Ale House locations are closing. The Florida-based company has removed mention of the Ohio locations from their websites.

Flowers and Bread Co.

In a recent article with Columbus CEO, owners Sarah Lagrotteria and Tricia Wheeler announced the closure of the cafe portion of their business. There are plans to expand the flower and bread workshop portion of the business under the new name Flower and Bread Society.
