I'm very much looking forward to rounding out my week of local eating with a weekend of local drinking. The city's craft breweries will fill pints with their delicious beers Friday and Saturday at the North Market.

The annual fest is a great chance to bone up on Columbus' microbrew scene. Check out signature and seasonal drafts from Barley's, Columbus Brewing Company, Elevator Brewing Company, Gordon Biersch, Hoster Brewing and Zanesville's Weasel Boy Brewing.

Beer tasting admission is $15, which includes a commemorative pint glass and 10 tasting tickets. I'll be pouring - and likely sampling - Columbus Brewing Company beers on Saturday afternoon, so stop by and say hello!
