The Brewery District and Whittier Peninsula, also known as the Old German Brewing District, is a centrally located neighborhood just south of the downtown business district of Columbus, Ohio. This historic district has plenty of nightclubs, restaurants, and other commercial activity with walking distance for area residents, many located along High Street.  


The neighborhood has some unique walking destinations such as the “Drunken King” statue and the Worley Building which has been converted for entertainment use. 


 If you live in this region, be prepared for some cold, icy, and snowy conditions in the winter with a warm coat and good boots. If your dog gets cold easily, your pup may even appreciate doggie booties and a jacket! Summers are warm but prone to severe thunderstorms. Be aware of impending severe weather as you do not want to get caught in a storm with high winds, hail, and torrential rain which can be hazardous to pedestrians and pets.

The Brewery District is bordered by Scioto River on the west, Interstate 70 on the north, South Pearl Street on the east, and Greenwell Avenue on the south side. The district is divided into four subsections. The Northern Tier is one of the oldest developed sections with historic buildings. The Southern Tier has mostly residential two and three-story dwellings with brick construction, side streets, and alleyways. 


The Transitional Tier is currently undergoing a lot of redevelopment activity and the Whittier Street Peninsula has mostly industrial and commercial activity with governmental organizations situated in it. 


The Brewery District is situated on a floodplain and is mostly level, although there is an elevation drop on the south side. Most of the area has sidewalks allowing pedestrians to safely get around. However, train tracks running through the area impede access to the parks and river to the west and should only be crossed where pedestrians ways are present.
