Halloween festivities aren’t just for the kiddos. A frosty pumpkin ale or vanilla porter may be the only sweet treat you need to help you forget about sneaking into the Trick or Treat stash. Lucky for you, Columbus offers awesome microbrew options, and several are right downtown or a quick COTA CBUS ride.
Plan your first stop at Elevator Brewery and Draught Haus where you will find the recent Great American Beer Festival medal winner – Mogabi. Plan to treat yourself to dinner, too. We recommend the Rock, a delicious, hand-trimmed tenderloin filet that you will cook at your table. Delish.
No tricks at Wolf’s Ridge Brewing, either. Whether you opt for the restaurant or the taproom, Halloween shenagins will have to wait, because you have your work cut out if you hope to get through their extensive list of microbrews. Don’t worry though, if you don’t get through their list by Trick or Treat night, they invite you back on Sunday when they offer live music.
Special treats await when you schedule a downtown brew tour with Columbus Brew Adventures. Learn about the history of the Columbus brew scene as you also find out more about the different kinds of microbreweries in the area.
No worries if you have to get home in a hurry to get the kids dressed for Trick or Treat. Just stop by Barley’s, North High Brewing, CBC or Land Grant Brewing to fill up a growler. We suggest you tell the kids you’ve got your own special witch’s brew.
If this got you thinking that you need to explore the Cbus Beer Scene, check out the Columbus Ale Trail. All of these breweries are on the trail, plus lots more in Central Ohio.
