Seventh Son Announces Expanding Bar & Adding Second Location
Columbus’ four-time favorite brewery Seventh Son is expanding and adding a sister location this year.
Starting construction next week, co-owner Collin Castore said the additional space comes from the parcel of land behind their existing location at 1101 N. Fourth St. The final product will include more production room for all those tasty brews, a new canning line, and a 30-barrel brew house.
Up top will be a rooftop patio and bar space covering 2,000 square feet. A retractable glass roof will allow it to be used as an outdoor space for most of the year and an indoor space for when Columbus weather refuses to cooperate.
Further south in the Brewery District, Castore said they’ll be opening Antiques on High, what he calls a sister location to Seventh Son. While the two are differently branded, there will be taps from each brewery at both.
Across from the Grange Insurance building at 716 S. High St., the brewery/bar/blending facility will specialize in Sour and Wild Belgian style beers. It gets its name from the old antique mall that was there for years and for the “original/antique styles of brewing and blending that date back centuries to classic Belgian methods that American craft brewers are now reviving.”
The 5,000 square foot space will have a small patio facing High Street as well as a larger back patio and rooftop patio overlooking a park.
Similar to Seventh Son’s setup, the bar will be serviced by food trucks stationed in front on High. Castore said there are also plans for a new restaurant to open next door, and he hopes to create a synergy between the two businesses.
“I think the more kind of business and life and vitality that comes down to that part of High Street, I think the better,” Castore said. “Whoever it is, I think it’s going to be great for them and great for us.”
