Columbus, Ohio: Beer Keg Burglar

A former bar with an enduring outdoor display: a lifelike thief who appears to be yanking a beer keg out a window of the building's upper story.

4223 Roberts Rd, Columbus, OH
I-270 exit 10. Drive east on Roberts Rd for about a half-mile. The house-like bar will be on the right; the man is on the far (east) side of the building, on the upper floor.

The bar is no longer open, so just use the street address. There's ample off-street parking.

Beer Keg Burglar

Restaurant is in an industrial area. They have a parking lot, but you can see the burglar at a pretty good angle from the driveway just before it.

Elevated Man with Beer Keg

A bar with an eye-catching display on the side of their building. Near the very top of it there is a crouching mannequin who appears to be hanging onto a beer keg that he's either trying to push or pull through the wall. The first time I drove by I thought it was a repairman working on an air conditioning unit. [Signmanjoe, 10/05/2015]

The man, who appears to us more like a determined keg burglar, is a recent (2015) addition.
