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.

Always a good time. Selection is robust between the Pub / Taproom / Brewery / Public House. Food sources local ingredients as much as possible. Bottle releases are a blast. Highly recommend a trip to the brewery. If you aren't able to attend a bottle release, bring a growler or 2 to fill up during normal weeks.
