    So what exactly is available to purchase right now? Thinking about doing a Saturday cannonball run.

    Check the website. They are very good at keeping the bottle list up to date. BB Coffee Oil will last, I'm sure.

    Made it to Campbell St. Jackie O's this past weekend, but unfortunately, didn't get downtown (or back to the brewery for Nutted BK).

    First time in Athens/at Jackie O's in way too long. It was so good to be back. I'm hoping the next time is MUCH sooner. MUCH, much sooner.

    That BB Coffee Oil was amazing!

    OU Inn request the "Jackie O's rate" that is all we could lock in. There should be plenty of rooms around town though.

    Nothing going on this weekend right? May come down for a visit Saturday and don't want to stumble on some super busy bottle release. Lol

    Also, only been to JO once before, around the time the other location caught fire. What is the difference between the (3?) locations? The one we went to had the U shape bar and had food. I know there is the production facility, but what is the last one? Sorry for my ignorance, just trying to get a plan together.

    The last one you didn't mention is the public house and it's right next door (and attached around the back) to the brewpub, which is the one you were in. The public house just got renovated so you should check it out. It looks really cool. The production brewery is the place you buy all of the 375 bottles and cans if that's what you want. Check out their site to see which drafts you would like to have. All three usually have at least one different beer than the others. I believe the public house is now the location to order food if you want food. http://jackieos.com/

    Had a barrel aged vanilla/coffee dark app recently and it was fine for what it's worth.

    This BB Coffee Oil is ridiculous. So much chocolaty, nutty, coffee goodness with just the right amount of bourbon.

    Thanks @sbh50

    Any particular order is best to hit them in to avoid it being busy? Should be there Saturday around open. Wasn't sure if it was best to start off at the production facility / taproom and then go on over to the public house or do it the opposite way.

    I'm heading down on Saturday from North of Pittsburgh. Has Bodhi hit yet and if so, where would be good places to get some? Ideally looking for a case since I have a buddy looking for some as well but I can settle for lower quantities.

    Might see you there.

    Brewery won't be busy at open, and Public House is huge, so it usually isn't too bad. Brewpub will be busy from open, most likely.

    We did the brewpub last time, so mainly looking at the Public House and Production Brewery this time around. Given the public house is open at 11am and the taproom production facility is 12 noon, not sure if we will just get to the public house at 11am and move on tot he taproom later or do it the other way around yet.

    What he said :grinning: Open usually isn't bad for all 3 locations in my experience.

    If the brewpub doesn't open until 6pm we may be gone by then, so it looks like the other two locations only this time around. We may stop at another brewery later in the day on our trek back to our hotel near Columbus (hitting up Wolf Ridge on Sunday before heading home).

    Good chance Wolf's Ridge might still have bottles left from the release tomorrow. You could likely go later in the day tomorrow after everything dies down and get in and out without any hassle.

    It hit in the Columbus area on Tuesday. I doubt you find any around Athens. I was working in Columbus on Monday and Tuesday and was lucky to get 1 four pack at a Giant Eagle MD. All the places I heard that got it put a 1 four pack limit on it so no way a case will be obtainable at this point. You can get growler fills of it in Columbus no problem though. Tons of places have it on tap. Anyway, have a fun trip and enjoy them great JO brews!!

    Echoing that. The bottles (coffee vanilla dire wolf and coconut howling moon) will most likely be still available into the afternoon/evening Saturday and there will certainly be a lot of stellar taps to be had for a few days/a week following. Ask the bartenders for growler availability, some special infusions might not be fillable. Be sure to try Clear Sky Daybreak and the new smoked Helles though.

    Planning on finally visiting JO soon. I'm kind of confused as to where to go though. From reading this thread it looks like they have three locations (Brewpub, Public House, & Taproom) with three different addresses. Why are there so many and what's the difference between the three?

    Ideally looking to grab some bottles, have a nice dinner, and have a good draft list of options we don't see up in Cleveland. Can this all be done at one stop or will I need to hit more than one location? We plan on heading to Athens in the evening after a day at hocking so likely wouldn't get to town until 6:00 or 7:00 and then we would head back home early Sunday morning.

    Apparently stating that I had a bad bottle of BB Vanilla Coffee Dark Apparition was viewed as "probably trolling." Well, I had a second bottle with the same results. I have a pretty expansive stock of their beers, and all the others i've had lately have been great. I love me some Jackie Os, i'm not going to stop supporting them, but I don't see the harm in putting it out there for others that there might be an issue with a specific bottle and it's worth checking out your stock.

    I'll most definitely bring a bottle with me the next time I drive through Athens and let them have it for science.

    Production Brewery is probably a mile or so away from the Brewpub and Public House(Those two are next door to each other.) Public Hiuse is bigger and has more tap lines, and they have a few guest beers. PH also opens earlier than the Brewpub, The Brewpub is small with, at times, more of the limited drafts, although I'm not sure if that's true anymore. All bottles/cans are sold at the production facility on Campbell.

    As far as the BB Coffee Dark App, I had one last night and it was fine. Coffee is faded but srill great.

    What Mike said above plus spend some time on their website. They have the updated draft list and hours for all 3 locations so that should help you plan better.

    Have the bottle release bottles been posted anywhere yet? I haven't heard anything about it since that post a month or so ago.
