Grand opening of Pint House beer garden

Written by on April 25, 2013 in Bars, Beer - No comments

A new beer garden, The Pint House, opens tonight in the Short North, bringing another great craft beer option to an area long deprived of more than one or two.

The Pint House prominently features an open-air beer garden in the front of the building and possibly the largest bar in the Short North in the back. It’s an impressive space, with details like a fountain pouring water from tap handles and hand-carved wooden plates and paddles.

46 taps between the beer garden and back bar feature 42 different beers, including a specially brewed house beer, Pint House IPA made by Epic Brewing Company in Salt Lake City. While nowhere near as tasty as Epic’s own Hopulent IPA, it was pretty solid. Local breweries like Four String and Seventh Son will be featured regularly, along with a decent variety of beer styles. Most of Pint House’s beers are served in massive 21 ounce mugs at a not-so-massive price – $6 across the board. Select drafts will be half-off during happy hour. Pint House will offer beer flights and growler fills, too. Here was the beer list for their Sunday soft opening, though it’s likely to have changed.

The Pint House’s cocktail list includes a little bit of beer mixology: the Summer Lovin blends tequila, watermelon juice and Elevator’s hefeweizen, the Death by Bulleit combines Rogue Dead Guy Ale with Bullleit Rye, sweet vermouth and orange bitters, and the Shandy Gaff mixes Hoegaarden Lemonade, Shock Top Lemon Shandy and St. Germain elderflower liqueur.

There is plenty of good food, too – there’s a beer and cheese pizza with bacon and caramelized onion that might change your life, along with several other tempting pizzas, appetizers like loaded fries and blue cheese chips and a handful of other entrees.

The Pint House is open from 3pm-close Monday-Friday and 11am-close Saturday and Sunday.

The Pint House is located at 780 N. High Street.
