It seems that there's always something new brewing in the heads of the guys at North High Brewing. Followers of North High on Facebook, Twitter, or the Pony Express know that the company often releases new beers at their tap room, where more than 30 currently grace the rotating tap list and 10?20 lucky NHB selections flow on draft at any given time.
The tap room is complemented by the brewery's latest creation?a live-production brewhouse facility spanning nearly 10,000 square feet. Nestled just minutes north of downtown Columbus and less than a mile east of their High Street taproom, visitors are treated with a behind-the-scenes tour of the regional beer haven. Accompanied by stories from the owners and brewers, guests learn how North High's fresh hops and yeast are fermented into bottles of pure-bred Buckeye State microbrews.
Founded by dedicated hobbyists with a love for visiting wineries around the country, Good Vibes Winery brings the vineyard experience into uptown Westerville, operating an urban space dedicated to recreating the laid-back tastings usually found outside the city limits in conventional wine regions. Within a building on the historic Robinson Block, the spacious and comfortable tasting room greets guests with music and exposed brick and wood accents, helping visitors feel relaxed. From high tables or a welcoming bar and at their own leisure, guests can sample a selection of more than 20 small-batch vintages, each of which pairs readily with available cheese plates. To further enrich the experience, carefully chosen music helps groups wind down during a visit, and all of the wines are named after the owners' favorite classic hits. Clients can even charter the winery to produce wines of their own design that also bear custom labels.
For generations, the Pfeifer family tilled the soil?originally tending to the land as Midwestern farmers after the Civil War. Even though the family eventually traded in the farm, these agricultural roots still run deep. At Hidden Lakes Winery, they tap into this instinctual knowledge of fruits and cultivars to create a host of wines made from grapes sourced from around the United States. Glasses of light riesling or heady pinot noir in hand, guests often pair their sips with the onsite caf??s bistro-style cuisine. There, the kitchen boasts a full menu of Tuscan-inspired appetizers, artisanal pizzas, entrees, and desserts.

Racks of obsidian and golden bottles line the monolithic wine wall of Camelot Cellars's rustic boutique, bringing together varietals crafted by the winery and selections from around the world. Beneath chandeliers and brick facades, guests clink glasses of aromatic vintages and play favorite xylophone songs on themed tasting flights served atop the smooth contours of the locally hewn wooded bar. Small plates of cheeses, meats, and bread also gather nearby, cleansing palates and bringing out the wine’s subtler tones. Nearby, the convivial sound of good cheer emanated from the Tuscan Table and the private Tuscan Room, which house large groups and may be rented out for gatherings.
Not satisfied to fill their casks with only their own brews, the winery also aids clients in handcrafting their own artisan wines. With the help of a resident expert, prospective vintners assemble their preferred style of wine, leaving it in the capable hands of the winery for 6–12 weeks. Each bottle is then identified with a custom label, making perfect keepsakes for weddings, parties, or obedience-school graduations.
Greg Lehman found inspiration to start a distillery in an unlikely place?a volleyball court in Switzerland. While playing there professionally, Greg was struck by the commonness of locally distilled spirits. It resonated with his upbringing in Ohio, where distilleries once thrived before Prohibition made malt liquor America's classiest drink. Upon returning home, Greg and business partner Dave Rigo founded Watershed Distillery, joining the state's heritage of microdistilleries.
Today, the pair mans a 660-gallon custom-made copper still to craft the signature Four Peel Gin, infused with eight botanicals, as well as a vodka that's quadruple-distilled from Midwest-grown corn and a bourbon aged in American oak barrels. Greg and Dave also open their distillery for tours, taking guests through the facility and letting them watch everything from mashing to barreling, depending on the stage of the current batch. A tasting room enables patrons to sample spirits.
