Default Columbia SC.

I'm going to be in W. Columbia SC on business the evening of March 27th. Hoping you guys could point me to a good brew pub.
Actual address I'll be working at is 201 Metropolitan lane.
Or if anybody is doing an AG brew that day I'd love to watch. Could even buy ya dinner afterwards on the company's dime! Whats better than that.

there's only 2 LHBS in columbia, the one closer to you will be Keg Cowboy in Lexington (should be less than 10-15 min from west columbia) they are a great supplier for brewing and even serve locally made brews, usually live bands n stuff at night too.

As of right now, there's only one brewpub in Columbia - Hunter Gatherer, on main street downtown. It's a bit hit or miss on the beers.

However, I would probably consider taking time to visit Flying Saucer and/or World of Beer, both are near each other in the Vista.

The Hunter/Gatherer is actually better than 'hit-or-miss' IMO. I have had some awesome brews there (ESB, Scotch Ale) and some fair ones but no bad ones so far. Its right behind the Capital building on S. Main St.

Another very good restaurant to try is in the Harbison area (northwest Cola) called the British Bulldog Pub. Nearby is Heller's german restaurant, and both have great beer selections.

Enjoy your stay!

Most homebrewers around Columbia stay away from Hunter-Gatherer. Enough said.

Huller is horrible. Not worth visiting at all.

Well he was right on one thing about Hullers. They only have a small selection of beers but the food is awesome if you like homemade German food. Mr. Huller makes his own brats and sauerkraut that are the bomb.
