Description: Hunter-Gatherer Brewery has been brewing and serving classic ales since 1995. Starting in 2015, we will regularly feature cask-conditioned ales served from wood kilderkins made by Alastair Simms, the only master cooper in the United Kingdom. Michael Jackson, aka the "Beer Hunter", visited the Hunter-Gatherer Brewery in 1997. He wrote that the Hunter-Gatherer is "the kind of place CAMRA (Campaign For Real Ale) members might enjoy. The beer is the hero, rather than the brewery being an afterthought. In the U.S., And even sometimes in Britain, the latter is too often the case." Michael Jackson was the best beer writer and critic the world has known. A compliment from Michael Jackson is as meaningful as it gets in the brewery world.

I got to visit this place again almost after 4-5 years. It is generally crowded. Still we got the table downstairs.

Menu is written in a big black board. I would say this place is right in the middle on the pricing side. $30 bucks for dinner may not be an every day place though still it is better than most.

Food is good. This time I ordered Scallops. I can’t complaint about those.

My friend stayed with more traditional order. He likes going here more often and tries to take us too.

Rustic look is enjoyed by many while few may prefer more modern interiors.

A friend lives nearby and thought the building/concept was interesting so we decided to give it a try and were not disappointed. There is plenty of seating and space. The beer was great and the pizza we got is some of the best that I’ve had recently. Fun place to try out with friends or family. Can’t wait to go back to try more food.

My favorite brew pub, of which there are a growing number in Columbia, SC. They serve good food, so you can either go for the beer or the food.
