    This is fantastic news. Fat Heads is spectacularly good beer.

    The only way it would be better is if they were considering a location in Clintonville.

    Awesome news! Unless they pick Polaris.

    3 out of 4 ain’t bad, although I don’t see much chance for German Village happening.

    I’d think the Brewery District would be a good fit along with CBC and World of Beer. Polaris would bring them traffic but a different crowd, depending on what they’re going after. If a good amount of the space is dedicated to brewing, the rent in the Short North and Polaris area might not be worth it.

    How about 4th St. in Italian Village? It’s the new hotness!

    While not Fat Heads, I’m pretty excited about the new Crest Tavern and their brewing efforts taking place in Clintonville.

    Another great brewery amongst other great breweries. The beer scene here is getting better every month. Our former German brewmasters would be proud.

    I hope they are bringing some of their Oompa Loompa Chocolate Cream Stout with them tonight at Beerfest! If it tastes anything like Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate Stout (or better), I’ll be happy.

    The new Crest Tavern will brew their own beer?

    I think the old Metro spot on S. High would be awesome for this.

    What about the old Le Metropolitan (or something like that) with the mini Eiffel on Liberty St next to MORPC? I was by there today. It has a garage door entrance, too.

    They said in their initial announcement that that is the plan.

    Polaris? Really? That is lame. They should look in Clintonville.

    It’s not lame if you’re in business to, you know, make money and sell lots of beer.

    I honestly don’t think the Short North needs another brewpub given the current influx. I won’t argue with German Village or the Brewery District being decent options.

    Excited by this, there seems to be a brewpub revolution in the works.
