Columbus Brewery Tour

Any bar crawl contestant must experience the many breweries Cap City has to offer! In addition to learning about the brewing process and the history of beer production, you’ll sample some of the greatest local brews. Brewery tours frequently take you behind the scenes and demonstrate the materials and tools used in each special craft brew.

Whether you appreciate the craft of making beer or not, at least there are plenty of tastings and hang times involved! Check out Wolf’s Ridge brewery tour and Brewdog’s massive regional headquarters in Canal Winchester.

Cocktail Competition

Starting a cocktail competition with your friends makes for a great evening – if you do it right. Invite your friends over for a night where every attendee makes a cocktail for the judging of the guests. This is the moment to showcase your mixology skills and creativity, all while sampling your friends’ favorite creations!

Participating in a cocktail competition is an excellent way to learn new recipes, techniques, and tips from one another. It also adds a dash of excitement to your gathering and makes for a friendly competition. Did we mention, you don’t have to be an experienced bartender to take part? With some practice and creativity, anyone can concoct a delicious drink! Don’t have a favorite? Check out the best of our Dueling Axes cocktail menu for inspiration here!
