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.

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.
