Not a complete college-town dive, but the interior is not much to look at. The food is reasonable, with some real highlights (especially the pizzas made with the spent grain crusts).

But you didn't come here for the food, or the atmosphere, you came for the beer.

You came to the right place. Jackie-O's features some of the best and most imaginative brews, pushing the style envelope in new and exciting ways with respect for both the brew and the customer. And while the in-house brews are always the big draw, they also regularly feature some wonderful guest taps.

Absolutely one of my favorite places to drink beer.

Jackie O's is one of my personal favorite breweries. The brewpub is located on Union Street, which is about a half a block off Athens' main street, Court Street in its quaint downtown area. Athens has a very cool vibe and Jackie O's is its craft beer mecca. The brewpub and a larger bar area called the public house are connected by an outdoor courtyard area. They both offer a large variety of in-house brews as well as some guest beers usually with a few featured guest breweries- often also local. And yes you can take your drinks out into the courtyard- there are tables to sit. The 12 taps listed on this page isn't accurate. I would guess that there are more than twelve in the brewpub alone. They sell growlers and bottles/cans of their stuff when available. Now there is a tasting room at the actual brewery which is about 2 or 3 miles away near the football stadium as well. There you can also get growlers with a limited selection, but they have barrel-aged bottles and limited release bottles you can't find anywhere else. The food is good but the beer is amazing. Huge variety of styles from a milk stout aged in sour barrels to a imperial paw paw wheat, you can find anything and the seasonal options do not disappoint. I've been to a majority of the better craft beer places in the Ohio, Penn, WV, KY area and this place is still my favorite.

The brewmaster really knows the art of barrel aging. Everyone is fantastic. The staff is also very friendly.
