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.

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
