The Cincy brewery named for America's fattest president readies to open its doors in the Gravity development

Franklinton gets another brewery with the opening of Taft's Brewpourium, the first Columbus venture for Cincinnati-based Taft's Brewing Company.

Located at 440 W. Broad St. in the Gravity development, the giant brew space, which encompassed 5,800 square feet, is set to open its doors at 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15.

The brewery will offer 16 beers on tap, and its kitchen will serve coal-fired, New Haven-style pizza. Regular hours of operation are 4 p.m.-11 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. until midnight on Friday and Saturday and noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday. (The brewery is closed on Monday.) In the spring, the space will expand to include a 2,000 square foot outdoor patio, though with ice and snow currently coating the city that feels a long, long way off.
