Dave, good to hear from you, yes I,ve been to the Hofbrau Hasus in Columbus,  I never thought about they might have a carry out.  My son lives up there and I'll have him check.  I don't drive that much anymore. Thankd tom

Hey Tom, I was looking at German places in your area, and from the menu I would venture a guess that it would be worth the drive to eat/drink at the Hofbrauhaus Columbus. Sure wish they delivered!

Tom ,

Out west here we have these package bier and wine and liquor stores they are called BevMo and another one called Total wines and more. They have a very good German collection as well of many other very good biers from several countries, and they come in 1/2 litre bottles just how we used to get them. See if you can find your version of that kind of store in a city close to you. Good luck and happy hunting. You might also contact your local liquor store and have them ask their bier distributor to help out, I am able to get some decent imported German bier from my local liquor store here in Sacramento.
