Break out your jorts and strut that dad bod because Ohio University Dad’s Weekend is came and went. Each year, Bobcat fathers come from near and far to hit the bricks to relive the “Glory Days” with their spry, young sons and daughters.
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).
Court Street is obviously the iconic scene at Ohio University. If you're a student there I'm sure you've been out to the bars during the weekend or maybe a couple times during the week. But have you ever wondered what else is around Athens County? What other festivities are around the Southeast Ohio?
