85 Ohio Breweries We Love

Our on-staff beer fans share favorite finds from their travels throughout the Buckeye State.

CENTRAL

Barley's Brewing Co.
One of the longest-running breweries in the state still offers one of the best craft beer selections. Their location features a restaurant downstairs and a taproom upstairs with a large in-house and guest beer selection. If you ever see Bourbon Meyer on the menu, make sure to treat yourself to this perfectly blended peanut butter and chocolate bourbon-barrel-aged stout that mirrors the always-popular Buckeye candy. 467 N.

Somewhere in Particular Brewing
This Columbus spot is a spinoff of the “gypsy” brewery “Nowhere in Particular.” The large space, including one of the best patios in the city, serves up experimental beers in batches. Styles change regularly, but we recommend finding a batch of one of the goses for a salty and tart treat. 5055 Dierker Rd., Columbus 43220, 614/826-3723, facebook.com/sipbrew

JAFB Wooster Brewery
Continuing to be a presence in Wooster, JAFB is a large taproom that now offers crowlers of its beers. Order in food from a nearby restaurant or food truck, and grab a pint in the taproom. The brewery’s IPAs are the craze and often available year-round, but we recommend Wooster New Stout for the winter months and beyond. 120 Beall Ave., Wooster 44691, 330/601-1827, jafbwooster.com
