Hunter-Gatherer Brewery & Alehouse has been a staple of Columbia’s beer community since opening in 1995, acting as a sort of forefather for the Capital City’s now-blossoming craft beer scene. While other local beer establishments have come and gone, Hunter-Gatherer has weathered the storm and remained an incredibly popular spot in Columbia. But while the Main Street brewpub has been a favorite haunt of many for a long time, it’s largely remained the same place for nearly two decades.
That will change in 2015 as a new and separate Hunter-Gatherer Brewery will open in the city. But unlike its locally focused brewpub brethren, this new facility aims to make Hunter-Gatherer a statewide name.
