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.

Made it down to the taproom for the first time today, which is very easy to find off 33. The red barn is located just off the main road - it definitely stands out among the other stores in the area.

It was cool to see the barrel room from the parking lot. People were definitely brewing today. Once inside the barn, there is limited seating with a small tap list. The reason I went down was to snag some limited bottles (BB Black Maple, Oil of Aphrodite & Rum Oil). Employees were extremely nice and helped carry the beer out to my car.

Awesome place to visit when traveling through Athens. Too bad 95% of the people who live there don't appreciate its full worth.
