This place is an absolute oasis in an area of north Columbus (Crosswoods) that lacks variety and authentic dining.
I stumbled upon this restaurant a couple nights ago after watching a movie at the Crosswoods movie theater. It is definitely designed for optimal sports (soccer!) watching with a modern German "biergarten" feel. It is located right next to Sushiko and, aside from the cool exterior sign, it definitely has a humble exterior (compared to the interior! By my count, it seats approximately 200 people and will be a huge hit during the football season.
Tables, chairs and bar stools gave the place a Euro feel, and the draft beer taps that protrude from four wall-mounted barrels are super cool and unique. They have approximately 30 draft beers - more than half of which are German). I had the Paulaner Oktoberfest and Paulaner Munich (which I haven't seen on tap anywhere in Ohio!)
The food was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I spent a few weeks in Frankfurt a couple of years ago, and everything from the bratwurst to the mustard (original German "senf"!) at the WB was 100% authentic. The jumbo pretzel was also amazing - served with senf, obazda cheese, and German pickles.
Schmidt's, watch out! Wurst und Bier will definitely develop a loyal following if they keep it up.
