Best Local Beers In Athens, OH

Athens, OH is home to three incredibly delicious local breweries that many Ohio University students do not know about. These three breweries are Jackie O's, Little Fish and Devil's Kettle, and each one of them offers nationally-known beer. 

Most college students at Ohio University stick to only going out on Court St. and do not think about doing anything besides that; however, there are many different alternatives to Court St., including going to enjoy some delicious beers at one of these three breweries. Jackie O's has two locations W. Union St. and Campbell St. (both within walking distance). Little Fish is located at Armitage Rd., which is only a four minute drive, and Devil's Kettle is located on Columbus Rd. that is only an eight minute drive. All three of these locations are extremely close to Ohio University, and yet many students don't visit these local breweries.

These breweries offer an array of different types of beer, from IPA's to fruit-style beer to coffee flavored beer and everywhere in between, there is a type of beer for you. 

Here are the top 10 most popular beers from these three breweries (in no particular order).

Ohio University Bars

Overview of Ohio University Bars

If there is one thing you ABSOLUTELY need to know about Ohio University is that we love our bars. In our town of approximately 25,000 people there are 18 bars in a 3 block radius. It is absurd how often our students go to the bars. But, that is half the reason why Ohio University is the place to be. We don’t need a fucking reason to go to the bars here. However, you can count on an Ohio University student to pull a reason out of thin air. For example, last year there was a boil-alert in Athens because of a water main break. All the bars opened early that day and the student population went bonkers for “Drought Fest”. Homecoming is also a GIANT weekend for the bars. Almost all of the bars open extremely early on Saturday at around 6 am for Kegs and Eggs. I know you’re probably thinking, “Who the fuck wakes up at 6 am to drink beer and eat eggs after an aggressive Friday of boozing??” We do. And it is our job and honor to keep this tradition alive every homecoming year.
