    Saloon specializing in ‘craft beer’ to open in Brewery District

    Wednesday, June 22, 2011

    By GARY SEMAN JR.

    ThisWeek Community Newspapers

    It seems like a natural fit: a beer-oriented saloon moving to the Brewery District. A local developer will open the first Midwest location of World of Beer, a Tampa, Fla.-based company that specializes in suds – and lots of them.

    Mark Pottschmidt, a developer with Stanbery Development, will team up with Darren Greene from Polaris Grill on the World of Beer franchise, which will take more than 3,900 square feet of space in the historic Worly Building, 503 S. Front St. It should be open by the end of September.

    The place will offer more than 50 beers on tap from more than 40 countries across the globe, plus 500 beers by the bottle. All employees are required to attend a two-week beer school to get educated about the various styles.

    Seems a nice compliment to Shadowbox. Have not been to the Brewery District for a brew since Clinton was president.

    Shadowbox + World of Beer + Via Vecchia + Outland

    I think the Brewery District is posed well for a nightlife comeback. These types of unique destinations are exactly what the neighborhood needs.

    Is that the big wharehouse like place, three stories tall, next to the shadowbox with the giant artificial palm trees inside it?

    For the last three weeks I have been driving by that place and seing construction trucks parked in it. If not, what the heck is going on in the big one.

    The construction trucks might be fore Shadowbox, which is right next door.

    Haven’t heard anything for the old “Brewmasters Gate” location. Funny that there are still palm trees inside it. ;)

    It lives on via the web, didn’t realize it limped on until ’05.

    Tenzo – 503 S. Front is the brick building with the turrets on the corner. CD101 used to have the left half of the ground floor.

    A fitting location for a place selling a bajillion kinds of brew, as the CD101 studios/offices were pretty much just a cash register away from being a big beer bar from time to time.

    I promise to do a lot of research and let you know how accurate you are in a few months. ;)

    Good for the Brewery District!!

    If they plan to open by September then I hope that they have been working on this project for a long time because with a change of use of that space from an office to a “gathering place” the City of Columbus can take months to review and approve the building permits.

    When I went to preview the Backstage Bistro next door in early May, the Shadowbox crew already knew about World of Beer (they’re the ones who first told me about it) so it’s at least been a work in progress since then.
