Columbus is becoming more and more ensconced in the craft beer culture, evidenced by the ever-growing number of new beer bars. Yes, craft beer tastes better than that mass-produced swill, but there’s something more to it. Beer has always been a communal beverage, best when sharing a couple pints with others.
Of the new spots serving great drafts and bottles that opened in the last year, the standouts offer a hospitable vibe that perpetuates the community aspect of craft beer. A rundown of the latest — and best — bars with a beer focus should help you figure out which one is best for you. Truthfully, you’ll probably find all of these spots are worth visiting.
