Pigskin Brewing Company, Gahanna, OH

I stopped in at Pigskin Brewing Company near Columbus, Ohio for dinner and a beer (well, a flight of beers, because I couldn’t decide).  Dinner included Tomato Soup and Buffalo Chicken Flatbread.  Both were delicious.  I enjoyed Undefeated IPA, Cream of the Crop Cream Ale, Highland Games Scottish Ale, and Passion Fruit Gose.  I enjoyed these beers.  The gose was my least favorite.  The cream ale is a light and easy drinking beer.  Tasty.  The Undefeated IPA is a solid IPA.  I very much enjoyed the Scottish Ale.  Malty deliciousness.

The Actual Brewing Company, Columbus, OH

I stopped in at The Actual Brewing Company in  Columbus, Ohio.  It’s not easy to locate.  But it’s worth the stop.  Fat Julian Imperial Stout is amazing.  It’s rich in chocolate flavor.  Well worth  the time spent looking for it!

I stopped in again and found tremendous progress.  I tasted Thermal Conductor Habanero IPA.  This must be the HOTTEST beer I’ve ever tasted.  I could have  gone with this.  Really.  I’m not weak.  But, it was late.  I wasn’t in the mood.  And, the bartender recommended the Wiener-Munchen Festival Lager which was delicious.  Smooth.  Malty.  Perfect for my mood and the time of day.  Relaxing.  Can’t wait to stop back again!

Land Grant Brewing Company, Columbus, OH

I stopped in at Land Grant Brewing Company in Columbus, Ohio.  I took the opportunity to call into a conference call and catch up on some e-mail.  While there I enjoyed the Session 71 session IPA and the Son of a Mudder Brown Ale.  Wow!  Both were great.  And the bartender was really nice and helped me decide which beers and accommodated my working right at the bar.  Great experience.  I’d stop in here again!

Zauber Brewing Company, Columbus, OH

I stopped in at Zauber Brewing Company in Columbus, Ohio and enjoyed their Vertigo Hefeweizen.  Although this is not my go-to style, it was recommended by  the bartender and I really enjoyed their beer.  I definitely get the spice flavors – clove, etc – in the beer.  I stopped with one so vertigo was no problem for me 😉
