The Grandview area is nothing short of the city’s premier incubator for the craft of micro brewing.
Starting in 1998 with Smokehouse Brewing (formerly Barley’s Smokehouse and Brewpub), the area has seen tremendous growth in craft brew destinations, offering a surprising range of intriguing styles of beer and brewing methods. We have started to call this area the Grandview Brewery District.
We’ll start our tour at Smokehouse Brewing for a guided beer sampling showcasing a brewpub which serves beer in more ways than any other spot in town. We add in light apps that highlight the Smokehouse’s dedication to the art of BBQ including what many consider to be the best wings in Columbus. From there we’ll explore a couple of the newer microbreweries in the neighborhood. Stops are typically Four String Brewing and Zauber Brewing Company but we may mix things up with a side trip to Sideswipe Brewing or Actual Brewing Company on occasion. In between samples you will have an opportunity to learn about all things micro brewing from brewers and owners while exploring some of the best taprooms in town. We typically end our tour at the Ohio Taproom where we’ll be able to taste from a selection of harder to find Ohio-only microbreweries and learn everything you wanted to learn about growlers but were afraid to ask. This tour is an introduction to craft brewing in the region and is designed to be fun, educational, and delicious.
This brewery tour is priced at $55.00. It includes tastings at 3 breweries, samples at the Ohio Taproom, a light snack at the first stop, air-conditioned van transportation between all of the stops, and a guide with plenty of local beer knowledge. It lasts approximately 3.5 – 4 hours.
This tour runs year round. Please check the calendar for available dates or contact us to arrange a private tour. Take a look at our Reviews page to read about what your Grandview Brewery District Adventure will include.
