Having a rough day? Head on down to the newest brewporium in town.
Taft’s Brewing Company is based out of Cincinnati and the Franklinton Taft’s Brewporium is their third location in Ohio. The 5,800 square foot space is located inside the Gravity building in Franklinton and it feels absolutely massive. There are games to play, screens for watching television, plenty of space to chill with friends, and of course, pizza.
“We are so excited to join the Columbus community. With this location, creating a fun experience is our goal. Our space is going to be full of games, a stage for music and special entertainment, amazing food featuring our New Haven Style pizza, and of course our hand-made beers. We cannot wait to open our doors to the people of Columbus,” said Dave Kassling, Managing Partner at Taft’s Brewing Company.
To start things off, we got some tater tots with beer cheese to compliment our round of drinks. The beers at the table were varied, from a holiday stout to an IPA, we were ready to try it all. I personally ordered the Double Jeopardy, a Belgian Dubbel, and I was obsessed. It was smooth and delicious and I would have been perfectly content to spend the rest of my night with one in my hand.
But we didn’t just go to Taft’s for the beer. We also went for the New Haven-style pizza. I’m not a pizza professional, but I do consider myself an amateur pizza lover, so you can imagine how much I was hyping the place before we arrived.
We ordered our pizza with excitement and we were not disappointed. The pizza crust was crispy yet chewy, lightly charred, and the perfect base for the classic, delicious toppings.
The staff at Taft’s were friendly and informative and the vibe was extremely great. The brewporium also has a stage where they will host fun events like live music, trivia, yoga, stand-up comedy, and more.
Taft’s Brewporium is located at 440 W. Broad Street. If you want to stay up to date on what the newest brewery in town is up to, you can give them a follow on Instagram: @TaftsBrewpouriumColumbus.
