Franklinton gets another brewery with the opening of Taft's Brewpourium, the first Columbus venture for Cincinnati-based Taft's Brewing Company.

Located at 440 W. Broad St. in the Gravity development, the giant brew space, which encompassed 5,800 square feet, is set to open its doors at 5 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15.

The brewery will offer 16 beers on tap, and its kitchen will serve coal-fired, New Haven-style pizza. Regular hours of operation are 4 p.m.-11 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 11 a.m. until midnight on Friday and Saturday and noon to 9 p.m. on Sunday. (The brewery is closed on Monday.) In the spring, the space will expand to include a 2,000 square foot outdoor patio, though with ice and snow currently coating the city that feels a long, long way off.
