Unlike the wine festival which is held outside, this event was actually held on the second level of the North Market, where they hold cooking classes and have extra seating for people eating at the market. For $20, you got 10 tasting tickets, a pint glass, and a $5 gift certificate for the North Market. It was actually a really good deal because the microbreweries that were there gave really large pours so you definitely got your money's worth of beer. Since I had just run a couple hours earlier and hadn't had anything to eat yet, I decided to not partake in the beer drinking but instead tried some amazing root beer one of the microbreweries made. It hit the spot!
There were 9 microbreweries from the central Ohio area and vicinity. Todd & Kevin had already tried most of the beers from the places right in Columbus so they were looking to taste from the 3 breweries they'd never been to.
We started at Hoster Beer
The next stop before we got some food to eat was Weasel Boy Brewing
The last beers Todd & Kevin tried were from Neil House Brewery
Despite the large crowds, we all had a great time and I know the guys were pleased with the new beers they tried. We will definitely have to go back again next year!
