As we slowly creep into Fall months, Summer temperatures are starting to dwindle in Columbus, the itch to enjoy patios drenched in warmth, stroll through golden hour sunsets and slurp every last drop of another Ohio Summer hasn’t been fully banished from my mindful musings every weekend. Despite my wishful thinking of an endless Summer, Fall has arrived and that means football, apple picking, pumpkin flavored everything and stilllllll some warm patio hangs despite the dipping temperatures. Fall is one of the BEST seasons to stroll through Columbus. Anyone else love the sweatshirt and sandal combo as much as I do?

An interest in craft beer turned into a passion for an industry that values collaboration, community, and quality. A love of fine dining evolved into a desire to open a true destination eatery. These combined interests led the father and son team of Alan and Bob Szuter to create Wolf’s Ridge Brewing, a micro-brewery, restaurant and small business with a focus on people, culture and creating unforgettable experiences for guests.
