Zaftig Brewery

Zaftig Brewing Co. should be the first place on your list. This industrial style brewery gives off relaxed, cool vibes that is perfect for hanging out or a happy hour. Sip slowly, their beer is all extremely high in alcohol content. That’s right, the delicious brews available are all bragging a high ABV, ranging between 7% and 10%. Not a fan of beer? The bartenders can whip you a concoction that will make you think you’ve been “doing beer” wrong your whole life. Other bonuses of Zaftig include their stash of board games and the food truck that you can catch in their parking lot.

Beer

Ill Mannered Brewing Co.

Carry little as you head to this microbrewery. Ill Mannered Brewing Co. is a tiny brewery that draws big crowds Friday and Saturday nights. They offer a solid lineup of five or so beers (subject to vary) with various levels of sharpness and hoppiness. Their friendly and helpful staff has also drawn much popularity. Food is not served but is allowed to be brought in. Much is in store for Ill Mannered Brewing Co., we believe this place has a lot of potential to be a booming business one day. Support small breweries and make this your place!
Recommended drink: Smooth Jazz

Brewery

Uptown Deli & Brew (Temperance Row Brewing)

Temperance Row Brewing Co. is a brewery located inside the popular deli, Uptown Deli & Brew, in Westerville, OH. Unlike our previous recommendations, this brewery is unique because it is paired with a food option. Uptown Deli serves delicious salads, smoked sandwiches, and even appetizers if you want a small snack. In the back is the Temperance Row brewery which hosts a beautiful patio to enjoy a drink on warm nights. This crew are considered local craft beer aficionados, and most customers get the flight to experience all the beer at once. Fun fact: Westerville was once the capital of prohibition, and our recommended drink is named after it.
Recommended drink: Prohibition Pilsner

Beer

Lineage Brewing

This next brewery is one you won’t want to miss, but might! Lineage Brewing Co. is held up in a strip mall next to a Valvoline, so you might just walk right by it. Make sure that you don’t, because you’ll be missing out on another amazing local brewery near Worthington, OH. Squeeze inside and you’ll find it difficult to decide which beer to order. Everything is great here, so most cave in and get a flight to combat their indecisiveness (10 beers for about $15 is a steal). There is also a handful of food options in case you get hungry. Delicious beer, free wifi, and a few food items on the menu. What’s not to love?
