The taproom itself serves no food, only beer and mixed drinks. In addition to its own brews, Zauber also features beers from other Ohio (and non-Ohio) craft breweries.
Although Zauber doesn’t offer any food in its taproom, they do have arrangements with a number of food trucks. The trucks park out in front of the taproom and offer their foods to patrons inside, and those who walk up outside. During the week of this writing, the food truck schedule included Flat Top Pizza Co., Tatoheads, and Aromaku. It’s also common to find The Paddy Wagon out front, too. This makes Zauber’s taproom a great place to sample not only their beer, but local food truck cuisine as well.
When I first encountered Zauber Brewing Company’s products at a beer festival, I was immediately impressed that they didn’t go the usual “pale ale” route. Zauber offers a wide range of German and Belgian beer styles, including:
- Magnum: A Belgian Copper Ale, similar to Belgian trappist ales
- Vertigo: A Hefeweizen
- Oktoberfest: A German Oktoberfest-style beer
- Berzerker: A Belgian IPA
- Stodgy Brown: A German Ale beer
- Kitschy Kolsch: A German Kolsch style
- Portergeist: A German Porter
- Buxom Blonde: A Belgian Blonde Ale
- Myopic Red: A German red Alt beer
- Ominous: A Black Belgian Ale
- Roggen Rye: A German style Roggenbier
If you’re a fan of German and Belgian style beers, you’ll definitely want to check them out.
