Restaurant Roundup: News from Daily Growler, Combustion Brewery & Taproom and more
Columbus has so many new restaurants, expansions, menu updates and other changes, sometimes it’s hard to keep up with everything. That’s why our Restaurant Roundup series was designed to keep you informed with the latest and greatest updates. Here’s what’s new in the local dining scene:
Short & Stout Kitchen has set up shop as Daily Growler Brewery District’s new permanent food operator. An operation that started as a mobile bar last year, Short & Stout replaces Big Mamma’s Burritos with scratch-made entrees for breakfast, brunch and dinner.
Expect burgers, fries, poutines and salads out of the Short & Stout Kitchen. They’ll start with breakfast and brunch seven days per week and dinner service Wednesday through Saturday.
Short & Stout hopes to begin operating at Daily Growler in late April.

Combustion Brewery & Taproom
The Pickerington brewery is working on a full-blown patio expansion. Their new enclosed, partly-covered patio will feature more seating and picnic tables. A wrap around fence will double as a bar for standing patrons. A timeline has yet to be announced for the patio’s unveiling.
