If you think of a Platform as something to dive off, then dive into the unique craft brews of Platform Beer Co.

These whimsical and satisfying offerings are a perfect pairing to the pizzas, salads and sandwiches served at Cardinal Pizza.

First up is Platform’s Haze Jude a pillowy, pineapply, juicy India pale ale with an ABV of 6%. This is an easy beer, just right for the lighter meals. Next, we offer Platform Sun Surfer – a fruited India pale that has a tropical flair as they present it in a Hawaiian style. Hey! We just happen to have a specialty pizza called The Hawaiian! What a coincidence.

Finally for the lighter touch we carry their Open Market, a fruited white ale that comes in at a comfortable 5.4% ABV.

Platform can also describe a plan to get a message out – and this company has stretched from Cleveland to Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and here to Columbus. Their tasting room in Columbus opened in 2016. The brewhouse was the original Platform Cleveland system, and now churns out experimental and barrel-aged craft brews. It’s over at 408 N 6th St, Columbus, OH 43215.

Platform was founded in 2014 on the premise that collaboration should be at the cornerstone of everything that they do. Whether it be with professional brewers, the home brewing world or a variety of other industries, craft brews are special and the experience of beer should be shared.

Platform Beer Co. has started a fun new club called The Electric Company. They are a gathering of individuals brought together for one unique purpose:  To try new, unique brews in the company of open-minded enthusiasts. This year they plan on sending out monthly samples of sour beers.

For those who sign up for the Electric Company they will get tons of perks such as a swag bag of merch and glassware, discounts on products (of course), a membership in their ‘Flight Club’ of samples of their newest products (and you CAN talk about Flight Club) and for certain members, a free ‘Brewer’s Dinner.’

Come to Cardinal Pizza and put on your ‘Platform’ shoes!
