Seventh Son Reborn | One Brewery’s Unusual Strategy for ExpansionDecember 14, 2022 | David Nilsen
Seventh Son Brewing opened in the historic Italian Village neighborhood of Columbus, OH, in April 2013. Their beer was good and their taproom was friendly and inviting—obvious prerequisites for success—and they set about doing what many other breweries around the country had done before them and have done since: offering classic American craft styles in a communal, social atmosphere.

Stone Brewing Co.| Pataskala Red IPAMarch 2, 2016 | KC Dunstan
ABV: 6.2% | IBUs: 70
This is a technically a review of Stone Brewing Co. Pataskala Red IPA, but it’s really a story of remembering your roots.
Last spring, Watkins Memorial High School in Pataskala (pronounced Puh-ta-skuh-luh), Ohio, had a problem. Their school district needed to pass a levy or ALL extracurricular activities would be cut, from sports to band. Freshman Ally Jeffers depended on band to get her through the day, a creative outlet that challenged her like no other class. The levy had failed twice before and the situation looked dire. That’s when inspiration struck- Ally wrote a letter to Stone Brewing CEO/Founder Greg Koch (Watkins Memorial class of ’81) asking for help.

Columbus Brewing Company | CreeperAugust 21, 2015 | KC Dunstan
ABV: 10.5% | IBUs: 100
Throughout the year, Columbus Brewing Company drops delicious bombs on unsuspecting palates. Some are malt bombs, like Sohio Stout, while some are hop bombs, like Thunderlips, Dalton and Bodhi. While the legend of Bodhi is growing after winning a bronze medal at GABF and an exquisite writeup on this very site, Bodhi has a gold medal winning big brother in Columbus Brewing Company’s Creeper.
Weekly Growler Fill | National Beer News RoundupJanuary 26, 2015 | Chelsea Mitchell
This edition of the Weekly Growler Fill is jam-packed with craft beer news. Seriously, this is the longest one I’ve ever compiled. Does this mean I get to take next week off? Probably not, but it does mean that some big changes are coming in the brewniverse. For example, Florida may lift the growler ban and Oklahoma may allow for the sale of refrigerated alcohol. Or how about the biggest story of the week: Elysian was acquired by AB-InBev. If you want to know more, because you need to know more, keep reading the Weekly Growler Fill.
Awesomesauce | Post-Holiday Online ShoppingJanuary 1, 2015 | Laura Mego
The holidays have now come and gone, which for me means two things: 1) time to think about hitting the gym for about a hot second (then go back to Netflix marathons on my couch) AND 2) online shopping. Seriously, for most people, the end of Chistmahaunukwaanza means the end of shopping, but sometimes the best deals come after the holiday rush. Plus, with no crazy shoppers, everyone wins! My favorite thing to do is to hit the online sales after the big push is over to scope out some cool deals. Read More
Shock Top Brewing Co | Honey Bourbon Cask WheatJuly 15, 2014 | Noelle Wiehe
Shock Top Brewing Co. St. Louis, MO | Honey Bourbon Cask Wheat
ABV: 5.5 %
It was Friday night in Columbus, Ga. and my boyfriend and I decided to make the most of our weekend and take a trip out on the town.
Heading out for a night of stories to be made often starts with a desire to have something in our stomachs before filling up on alcohol. We chose Momma Goldberg’s Deli on Broadway in what is known as uptown Columbus, Ga.
My discovery at this sandwich shop wasn’t the food, though. No, my discovery was of a new brew which, with one sip, sent my tastebuds back to the breakfast table on weekday mornings before school in my childhood days. I’ve had beer smells (Natural Light and Keystone Light) direct me back to less pleasant memories of my flip flops sticking to the floor of the beer caked basements at a college fraternity houses. This beer, however, left me with a scent I encountered from a cardboard General Mills box. Read More
Rodenbach Brewery | Grand CruApril 2, 2014 | Emily Mollineaux
This is the second time I have had this beer, and each time I fall more deeply, deeply in love with Rodenbach Grand Cru, a Flanders Sour style beer. I first sampled the Grand Cru at The Crest Gastropub in Columbus, OH. The main reason for trying the beer was that it was the most expensive on the menu ($10 for a 10 oz. pour), so I wanted to see what the buzz was about. Read More
Columbus Brewing Company BodhiFebruary 10, 2014 | KC Dunstan 1
8.5% ABV, 93 IBUs
As any beer fanatic in the midwest and beyond knows, January is Bells Hopslam season. Long on hops and ABV but short on supply, it can be tough to find in even the biggest markets. As if battling fellow fanatics for the limited supply wasn’t hard enough, you also apparently have to compete with bottle shops (see: Hopslamgate here, here, here, here, and here). Read More
