Skateboarding-inspired brewery opens new Short North taproom

Jack McLaughlin

Graffiti art, on-site skating displays and really good craft beer,

This is what you get when you stop by the newest Short North brewery, Half Baked

Located at 765 N. High St., the skateboard crew turned brewery opened its first public brick and mortar spot to the public last week, with a massive turnout.


The chic new space features graffiti art, skateboarding artifacts, and more. Half Baked also operates a private members-only bar in Merrion Village, which is largely dedicated to art.

Half Baked has existed as a brewery for several years before the new High Street space opened. It hosted fundraisers, skating events and massive concerts where its beer was available. The brewery has also been available in different Columbus businesses since the beginning of 2022. Its beer Unicorn Punch–served with a Pop Rocks-rimmed glass–is available at Mikey’s Late Night Slice locations, on draft and in cans.

Old North Arcade, Hey Hey Bar & Grill, Eight & Sand, Club 185 and Double Happiness also carry Half Baked beer.
