Seventh Son Brewing – 16.1% of 5,099 votes

Over the last few years, Seventh Son has become the North Star of the Columbus brewing map. The best food trucks, thoughtfully brewed specialty beers always popping up, and those stellar patios—Seventh Son is that place that Uber always asks you if it’s where you want to go. And now with this year’s announced expansion, the city’s best brewery gets bigger and better.

Bodega – 12.8% of 4,422 votes

The Short North favorite defends its title from last year, though it was nearly unseated by Seventh Son in what is probably the most competitive neighborhood for bars. But the top-notch comfort food at Bodega gives them the edge over the competition, like its famous grilled cheese ($1 on Mondays) and gourmet PB&J.
