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.

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
