North Market Microbrew Festival
Kegs will roll this weekend at the North Market. Beer lovers might sample more than 25 drafts on Friday and Saturday during the fourth annual Columbus Microbrew Festival.
Planning to offer tastes of new varieties and old favorites are Weasel Boy Brewing of Zanesville and six Columbus breweries -- Barley's Brewing, Barley's Smokehouse & Brewpub, Columbus Brewing, Elevator Brewery and Draught House, Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant and Hoster Brewing.
The two-day festival -- with live music and other activities anticipating the Ohio State-vs.-USC football game at 8 p.m. Saturday -- promises plenty of pre-game appeal.
