Columbus is a cool smaller town in central WI. Lots of nice older buildings and a bustling downtown. If you're a fan of architecture, note the Louis Sullivan designed bank right across the street from Hydro.

I was able to stop by after working up a thirst at the huge antiques place (6 floors of stuff in an old factory, quite a bit of beer related stuff).

Large windows in front and the tall ceilings give it an airy feeling. The bar is along the right and the semi-open kitchen is in the back left corner. Swag is for sale and is displayed on a rack by the front door.

Service was friendly and they were giving out samples of one of their new releases. I counted a total of 8 beers on tap, but I may have missed one. I sampled 4 beers with full pints of two. I think they show some promise, but would like to revisit when they have a little more experience with their brewing set-up. The beers had a dry almost cider like after taste. If I sampled their IPA blind, I would swear it as a Belgian Pale Ale.

I did not try the food but will next time. The menu had several interesting choices and they are very big on using local ingredients. I n fact they had a picture of the β€œlocal supplier of the month” up on the wall. I like that!
They had a decent sized crowd for happy hour. They are a friendly bunch. I noticed a lot of the patrons were member of their mug club.
