Ride Don’t Drive For Columbus Craft Beer Week

As you all know, today is the start of Columbus Craft Beer Week presented by Giant Eagle. The week is chock-full of events, tap takeovers, and more.

With these events scattered across the city, transportation may dissuade customers from checking out as many as possible. If you don’t have a designated driver, consider an Uber, Lyft, or Taxi. If you’re not looking to spend the extra cash, don’t worry, there are a few options for transport in Columbus.

HopperCart services the Downtown and Short North areas and works similarly to Uber and Lyft. Through the app, you can grab a ride, for free. Hopper only runs until midnight, so just like Cinderella, make sure you’re somewhere safe by then (you may as well check for both shoes while you’re at it!).


The CBUS by COTA runs past a fair amount of the events taking place tonight, and it’s also free. The CBUS runs every 10-15 minutes, again, until midnight.

Here are the events that are accessible via the CBUS
