Basing this review on my visit during the 12/2011 bottle release...
Jackie O's has two different entrances...a brewery side and a pub side. Both are connected via a large, multi-level deck around the back. Each side has similar decor...rustic wood, barrel tables, natural finishes. The pub side has a large stage up front with a long bar running down the right side of the building. The brewery side has some brewing equipment up front with a large, horseshoe shaped bar toward the rear.
I cannot say what the tap list is like during everyday happenings, but during the bottle releases, it is simply amazing! Each side had something different on draft...somewhere in the neighborhood of 30+ selections available...unreal! Each offering was of high quality, even if it was a style I was not fond of, the beer was brewed with excellent craftsmanship.
I had breakfast and lunch there...and the food was very good/great.
I would highly recommend stopping by here...I would love to stop by during a regular old Wednesday night to see how different things are...and I will modify my review accordingly.

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.
