Columbus Pump House


We’re excited to be a part of the Columbus community. The Columbus Pump House is a unique pub on the riverfront in downtown Columbus, Indiana where you’ll find a family-friendly atmosphere where can enjoy your favorite Upland beer on tap and locally sourced food over looking the river. We have a wonderful dog-friendly patio and a pizza oven, too.

The Food

Our menu changes seasonally and utilizes local ingredients whenever possible. Sound familiar? It might, because it’s an idea we’ve been championing at our Brewpub in Bloomington for 15 years. Of course, we also offer the Upland staple items we can’t live without- the Nachos, Tenderloin Sandwich and Mac ‘n Cheese, to name a few. Vegetarians (and delightedly surprised omnivores) rejoice when they discover the deliciousness of our homemade Southwestern Style Tofu that we use in our spicy vegan tofu tacos. Meat-eaters swoon over our Farm-To-Table Steak, our beef and buffalo burger options, and our refusal to ever cut corners where bacon is concerned.

The Beer

The 14 draught lines at the Tap House showcase our year-round beers, our rotating seasonal selections, nationally recognized sour ales, and our brewers’ pilot beers, the Side Trail Series. 12 and 16-ounce glasses, 64-ounce pitchers and beer samplers are available for in-house consumption, and growlers and other carryout beer can be purchased every day excluding Sunday, in accordance with Indiana state law. Scroll down for daily beer specials!

The Patio

The Pump House is overlooking the river for a reason. We take great care, and great pride, in our outdoor spaces. Grab a pint after a bike ride or paddle.
