Our favorite stop on the Columbus ale trail. The Berzerker is one of my fav all time brews, and that's saying something. Great atmosphere very friendly staff. This place is a craft beer lovers dream.

I was fortunate to do a tour of the facility and meet the man who is creating the fabulous beers served at the front of the house. The beer sampler includes five different pours and is a great introduction to all this place has to...More
