This is the Columbia edition of the Pratt Street Ale House in Baltimore. As such, they have the Oliver series of microbrews (brewed up in Baltimore) and a bunch of guest drafts as well. All of the Olivers are very tasty and they have a wide diversity of beer styles, not all IPAs and other heavy/hoppy beers (but their IPA is delicious!). The guests are an impressive selection as well, change a lot, and often contain one or two cask beers, which is great.
The food is excellent, especially the pretzel appetizer and the wings, which have a very unique sauce and taste. I will say that the portions can be a bit small (the filet tips are delicious but you don't get many and the french dip sandwich is very tasty but you get a small amount of meat, not even enough to totally fill the roll).
The place itself has two massive bars, some tall tables near them, and a lot of normal tables and booths. I've come to just drink a beer and I've come with my wife and very young son and never had a bad time. I recommend the Ale House without hesitation and am extremely happy to see it in Columbia!
