The Ram Restaurant and Brewery will debut four new brews this Tuesday in their Short North taproom.
The Ram is a family-owned West Coast brewery chain that is on a steady eastward march. The Columbus location, which was their 18th store, opened late last year. Don’t let the fact that it is part of a large chain scare you off. Much like Gordon Biersch, each location has considerable local control. The bar offers 18 taps, nine of which will eventually be house beers. Six of those house taps wiill be be reserved for the Ram’s flagship beers which you can find at all of their locations: Blonde, Amber, Pale Ale, Hefeweizen, Porter and IPA. But Ram’s local brewers — Rick Durham, formerly at Luna Kombucha/Wild Ohio, and Kris Fry, formerly at Actual Brewing — get to bring their local touch to the remaining house taps.
Several of those local brews will debut this Tuesday, January 17th. The Ram will be releasing its first Imperial Stout, The Sherman, as well as a series of three beers brewed in partnership with neighboring Mission Coffee Company: a nitro Imperial Stout, a coffee Double IPA, and a Blonde, all aged on Mission coffee.
The Ram Restaurant and Brewery is located at 906 N. High Street.
