Final week Yellow Springs Brewery opened its Columbus outpost within the former Crest area in Clintonville! That is the brewery’s first foray outdoors of its taproom and manufacturing area in Yellow Springs itself, and so they’ve supplemented their brews with a pub menu of snacks and sandwiches.
(Try their unique taproom in Day Journey: Younger’s Jersey Dairy & Yellow Springs and A Trek Out to Yellow Springs!)
Regulars of The Crest will discover all of the updates to the area, like the brand new bar tops, the branded mural on the wall, and the addition of extra cubicles, standing tables, and different kinds of seating.
The beer menu options a couple of dozen alternatives, from Yellow Springs signatures just like the Boat Present IPA, Zoetic pale ale, Captain Stardust Saison, plus extra IPAs, an amber ale, gose, stout, and seasonal brews. (Pictured right here is the Tropical Boat Present.)
Additionally they function a number of basic cocktails, like a negroni, espresso martini, maple quaint, margarita, virgin mule.
The all-season patio has been given an replace with slender picnic tables and benches.
The meals menu spans a single web page and options snacks, sandwiches, and a pair child’s gadgets. Be aware the prepared obtainable of vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free gadgets.
All of the meals pairs properly with the home brews. I’ve all the time cherished Yellow Springs beers – they’re properly executed, pleasing, easy-drinking. (That is the Waning Daylight amber ale.)
Company can order food and drinks on the bar or utilizing the QR codes on their tables. There was a little bit confusion and delay in getting our meals to us, though we all know to be affected person since they’ve simply opened. Usually, although, the meals is fairly good! Nothing fancy, however simply the form of bar munchies you need to go together with beers.
We began with the pretzel basket with a aspect of beer cheese.
The poutine fries use home fries, cheese curds from Younger’s Jersey Dairy in Yellow Springs, a caramelized onion gravy, and a fried egg. We requested for additional gravy, as a result of they acquired a little bit skimpy with it. And we might have executed with out the egg!
The candy and spicy sizzling rooster sandwich was a winner: crispy fried rooster breast in dragon sauce, with pickles, peanut slaw, and sesame.
The French dip was fairly good, too. It layers shaved rib-eye, Swiss, and a light-weight horseradish sauce on a hoagie, with a cup of au jus for dipping.
Kudos do the cheeseburger as properly. It’s topped with candied bacon, white cheddar, pickle, onion, lettuce, tomato, and a very good 1001 dressing.
After all, you possibly can take house six-packs of Yellow Springs beer and brewery swag with you.
