After holding off on re-opening to make sure all health and safety concerns were addressed, Wolf’s Ridge Brewing will be welcoming diners back starting Thursday.

When restaurants got the go-ahead to open dining rooms on May 21, Wolf’s Ridge decided to wait, instead sticking to to-go orders only as they listened to concerns from the staff, observed how other restaurants and bars were handling re-openings, and made a thoroughly thought-out plan to safely open themselves.

“Since (the announcement by the state allowing restaurants to re-open), we’ve looked at what was the safest approach to reopen, as well as what gave us the best route to provide our guests with a compelling experience,” said Bob Szuter, co-founder of Wolf’s Ridge Brewing.

Dividers have been set up to create a safe social distance between customers and employees. Wolf’s Ridge will also be implementing a prix fixe menu to “better plan dining timelines and preserve as much of the dining experience in their restaurant space as possible,” according to a press release.

“We needed to find a balance between creating an exciting Wolf’s Ridge Brewing dining experience and the safety of our guests and staff.”

Corey Schlosser, general manager of Wolf’s Ridge Brewing.

Moving forward, Wolf’s Ridge will be open for dinner between 5 and 10 p.m., Thursday through Sunday. The dining room will also be open for brunch between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

During the COVID closure, Wolf’s Ridge was one of the local businesses to take advantage of the new to-go alcohol legislation. If you’re still not comfortable with eating out yet, Wolf’s Ridge is glad to pack up one of its specialty cocktails for you to enjoy at home.

Barrels, get your whiskey barrels here!

Middle West Spirits has just announced a new sale program to unload their growing surplus of whiskey barrels. Barrels will be available for pickup and sale from their warehouse, 470 E. Starr Ave., Sat., July 18,  8 a.m. to noon.

Middle West will sell 30-gallon and 53-gallon barrels for $50 and $75 respectively. You may also pick up barrel staves for $3. 

The barrels for sale were used for either bourbon, rye, or wheat whiskey, and the barrel type can be specified upon purchase. 

Whiskey barrels, and bourbon barrels, in particular, have a long history of reuse in spirit aging internationally. This is a wonderful opportunity for home distillers to snag a barrel for their own experimentation. 

And if your skills lie outside of the world of homebrewing, there are more than enough craft possibilities in one of these recycled barrels.. With projects ranging from bars, to chairs and tables, the DIY-er will have endless options for creativity. 

Barrels will be available on a first-come, first-served basis and can also be reserved by emailing the barrel size and whiskey type to [email protected]

Westerville’s Wine Bistro has a new name—reopens Thursday with makeover

Even though City Brands announced that the Wine Bistro in Worthington wouldn’t be returning, there were initial rumors that the Westerville location also wouldn’t be making a comeback.

Original reports were wrong, and City Brands announced the return of the Westerville Wine Bistro, 925 N. State St.,on July 9 after a light remodel. You can find the (614) report on the City Brands reopenings and closings here.

The remodeling isn’t the only thing that’s going to be new about the Wine Bistro in Westerville, though. Or as we should we say now, NAPA Kitchen + Bar. With locations  in Westerville, Dublin, and Montgomery, Ohio,  NAPA Kitchen + Bar is a sister concept to The Wine Bistro.

“We feel the NAPA Kitchen + Bar concept will really appeal to a wide range of guests in Westerville. We wanted to undertake this conversion for quite a while but never found the right time to close down for the renovations,” Tim Rollins, President of The Metropolitan Companies and owner of NAPA kitchen + bar, said in a press release on Thursday.

The restaurant will be open Monday through Thursday, 4 to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 4 to 10 p.m., and Sunday, 4 to 8 p.m.
