Restaurant Roundup: News from Middle West Spirits, Graeter’s 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. This week, get your know-how on what your local distilleries, breweries and craftsmen have been up to.
Middle West Spirits
Columbus’ own distillery has been nationally recognized. Middle West Spirits and their OYO Sherry-Finished Bourbon earned Best Bourbon, Best in State and Best in Show in the American Craft Spirits Association’s Heartland Whiskey Competition.
“Ohio is ground zero for some of the best grains in the country, so it’s with great pride that we’ve been able to capture and share their unique flavors with some of the most discerning whiskey drinkers around the world,” says Middle West Spirits co-owner Brady Konya.

If you’ve been to North Market recently, you may have noticed the new benches and tables on the second floor. Local furniture company, A Carpenter’s Son, has completed work on the mezzanine dining area, putting their craftsmanship on display for the thousands of customers that will use them in the years to come.
The tables and benches can seat over 400 people.

If you’ve been missing Graeter’s Banana Chocolate Chip ice cream, rejoice, because it’s back. The ice cream company posted the news on Instagram this week. A limited edition flavor, it won’t be on the shelves forever.

A new beer is now on tap at Nocterra Brewing in Powell. The brewery has come out with Brittberry, a traditional pale ale with notes of blueberry and honey.
“It’s lightly fruited and hopped with Cascade, Citra and Mosaic,” they posted on social media. “Expect a beer that is more bitter than sweet with a dry finish.”
