Quick visit to Jackie O's on a Friday afternoon with trep and his lady friend.
Hands down, the house beers made by the staff here are amazing. Got a sampler flight of their Cellar Cuvee 1, Barbarleywine, a 10% stout aged on cherries, a Scotch Ale, and their Ohio Pale Ale. All would have received solid "A" ratings if I had the time (and tolerance) to review them all. Guest tap line-up is equally as impressive, with no wasted space at the bar. The likes of DFH Festina Peche, Stone Levitation Amber, Two Brother's Hop Juice, Saison DuPont, and Southern Tier Jah-vah were all in attendance. Lots of bottled beers too, but I didn't have time to get a good look at the lineup.
Food was above average for a pub, had a "Spent-grain Pizza" made with leftover barely. Other choices included hot & cold sandwiches and some typical pub munchies. Service was prompt and sometimes friendly, and the atmosphere of Jackie O's was great--high wooden ceiling, a few dart boards, pool table, and a long wrap-around bar that left you facing fellow patrons. Great crowd of local Athenians, most were beer nerds like ourselves, and a representative from Stone Brewing Co. even stopped in to say "Hi." Overall, a fantastic brewpub that I'll be frequenting again seeing as it's only an hour from my WV home.
