Jackie O's is a gem. It is a mix of entrepreneurial spirit and backwoods, bluegrass charm. Everything inside appears to be wood except for the fermentation tanks and Appalachian locals. If you weren't in Athens, Ohio, you would think that you had stumbled into some sort of hip ski lodge.

The beer selection isn't big, but precise. There isn't a throwaway beer on tap. Their own beers are good, not gimmicky. They try to really execute a style. And their guest beers are really fine choices. They are typically from Michigan: Founders, Bells, etc., which helps the whole experience feel local, which it is.

There isn't a cooler place to go to in Athens, except for maybe the converted 18th Century insane asylum up on the hill. But they don't serve beer, and it's not that far of a walk anyway.

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

Went to the new brewery on Campbell St on 10/25/14. Got there right at opening and enjoyed a flight of all the current taps. Almost all were very tasty. Talked with several staff members and they opened some of the barrel aged beers for me to sample prior to purchasing several cases. They even opened a few rare sours from 2013 for me to try because I love sours.

This place is awesome and I will definitely go back sometime in the near future. Great bunch of guys making really good beer. I highly recommend a visit. You will not leave disappointed. Keep it up, guys. Cheers
