We’ve been asked many times over the last few years whether we’ve thought about adding a brewery tour. The answer is yes! In fact, we’re not just adding a beer tour, but debuting a whole new venture that focuses on the growing craft beer and spirits scene in Columbus. Our new company - Columbus Brew Adventures - will start offering tours in September 2013, and we’ve got some great itineraries lined up for every level of interest in craft beer. We’ll be offering tours not only within Columbus but also to some other worthy destinations such as Athens/SE Ohio and Licking County. We’ve been […]

The Hills Market Downtown

The Hills Market Downtown – Grand Opening! About a month ago, during a Dessert Tour, I was talking with Pistacia Vera‘s co-owner Spencer Budros when he veered off into a passionate soliloquy on the buzz he senses in the city – he noted the throngs of people out and about downtown, the constant construction, the new announcements and openings made practically everyday, and a widely shared upbeat demeanor about the future. He’s right – it is a good time to be a part of this city. We feel it too, and never more so than with the opening of the […]

Jeni’s + Askinosie

We love taking our tour guests to Jeni’s Ice Creams, and I’m sure that our enthusiasm both for the ice creams and the business is apparent. We’re constantly inspired by their involvement in the community, their energy, the support they give to other small businesses and the partnerships they form with like-minded, socially responsible endeavors. One of the great examples of this kind of partnership is their collaboration with Askinosie Chocolate. Jeni has used Shawn Askinosie’s chocolate in her Askinosie Dark Chocolate ice cream since 2010, and in 2011 they collaborated on the Dark Chocolate + Malted Milk CollaBARation bar. […]
