Came here for the 8th anniversary special, an exceptionally well-organized and gentlemanly affair. I love the concept of waiting inside at the bar enjoying breakfast and a flight of beer while waiting for your number to be called - this kept the outdoor standing-in-line o an absolute minimum. The range and number of beers available was phenomenal, anniversary or not. The staff were friendly and efficient throughout, even though they must have prepped through the wee hours to pull this off. Food was tasty enough that we ate here twice. It took us a while to figure out that you can order beers in the brewpub side and carry them around back to the main bar, just so you dont miss any key happenings. Highly recommended at any time, but the events are something else.

Jackie Os is split into two places within the nearly same physical address. One entrance is the brewpub and the other is the public house. The taps are different, though you can carry your beverages from one to the other, out the back door, up the stairs, across the patio, and down the stairs. Food is served only in the brewpub, though the staff on both sides are quite attentive, helpful, and knowledgeable. This is the kind of place every college town needs. The food is quite good is these quaint halls.

(Visited 05/2009 and many times since): Jackie Os is located near the OU campus in Athens on West Union not too far off 50/33. There is metered parking all around. The interior is narrow with a pool table and small stage immediately inside. The bar is in the rear and is relatively small, and there are a few other places to sit as well. There is an upstairs area as well that I did not check out. The fermenters are viewable from the bar, and there is an old fashioned cash register. Since my first visit the place has expanded next door, effectively doubling their space. Jackie Os has around 12 taps, 7 of which are their own beers. The beers range from a Raspberry, Cream Ale, and IPA to a Sour Ale and Imperial Stout. All of the beers are above average, with a couple like to mostly organic Chomo-Lung-Ma being standouts. There are also a few guest taps from the likes of Lagunitas. All of the current beers are listed on a board, and the house beers are available in a sampler. Service was great on a weekday late lunch. The bartender was knowledgeable about the beers and introduced me to the brewmaster, who was kind enough to take me on a tour including the cellar and some of the brews he is aging for release during Ohio Brew Week. I had the fish sandwich for lunch and it was very good. Overall this brewpub is well worth visiting. It is a mistake to assume that because the place is in a college town that there is not an emphasis on quality brews. One of the best brewpubs in the state.

Visited late afternoon on a Tuesday. Jackie-Os is split into two different spaces - the brewery taproom and the Public House. The taproom was closed on my visit, so I had beers at the bar at the Public House. Pretty typical bar layout, with a long bar and bar tables throughout. They had an astounding 18 beers on draft, as well as two guest beers. The beers are all super creative and well made. Additionally, I had the cheese curds which were solid. Service was solid, and the crowd was a nice mix of beer folks and students. Glad I made the trip from Columbus to check this place out.

88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

8/16/11. Fun place. Street parking so its a little tricky. Ambience is definite low key neighborhood bar. Lots of locals, lots of wood, funky decor, barrels as tables. The restaurant on the other is much bigger but looks pretty much the same. Beers ranged from one bad one to a couple of good ones. The food wasnt too good but someone else got pizza and it looked awesome. The bartender was awesome... she was working the whole room, working really hard but yet was also able to be attentive to everyone. Prices were good. I was disappointed by a lack of their bottles to go. Despite a couple of annoyances I liked this place a great deal and Ill definitely be back.

Stopped by the public house side this time (7/13/14). The place can fit a lot of people so while there were several groups of people there, it didnt seem to crowded. Lots of bros doing soccer chants and whatnot. The bartenders were able to handle me and my beer geekiness and the college pukes with skill. No food on this side that Im aware of. Lots of taps though, and they had 11 house beers and another 8 or 9 guest taps. 5 ounce samples are 1.50-2.00 each and my flight of 8 ended up costing $13. As usual, the beer was top notch. Also, I only gave this place a 74 last time, which is just silly, so Im fixing that now.

The way here is via the highway from Columbus. We took the long and winding rural road from The WIlds, and you need a co-pilot with GPS to do that. Very large selection of beers, different brewmaster at the brewery and at the pub. They let me sample next door at their other bar prior to opening. Everything a solid offering. Good sized place, your neighborhood bar.I would have loved a sour or wild release but thats the special quarterly.

I drove down for the Barrel Aged Fest. The event itself was well organized, easy to get tickets and the system for selling the beer was easy, nice to go to a beer event that was not so crowded. The atmoshere is nice, a great location, cool campus pub. The feel inside is very homey, I could see myself hanging out here day after day if I went to school there. The servers were nice, pretty knowledgable. Cool to see Brad actually running the show and doing everything. The quality and selection of beerrs was really nice, great to see an event put on with tons of care shown in making their own beers but they also brought in some really good stuff. Sucks that I was only there 2 hours becauase I headed back to Columbus for the OSU game because there were so many beers I didnt get try. My gf commented she didnt want to leave either, as its just an awesome place to chill and drink at. Didnt have food but my buddy did and it looked awesome. Great event, great selection of beer, awesome home feel that makes you want to stay. What isnt there to like?

I came here for the first time for the summer 2013 release of four sours. The place is right in downtown Athens, a cool, brick-and-stone college town that feels historic and fun. Lined up a little before 9, and the doors opened shortly after 9. We had no trouble getting a table. The brewpub on the left is beer-only, 18 taps. The public house side is full menu, full bar, 20 taps. Not much crossover, either. Holy cow. Never been to a brewpub/tap room with so many house beers. Service was quick, friendly, and he came over to us all day. I LOVE that they dont make you wait in line outside all day for your number to be called for a release; they sit you down, serve you- everyone wins. The people are so nice here. Really accommodating and cool. Happy to pour samplers. Food is solid; I had both breakfast and lunch. Bottle prices are on the high end but drafts and samples are well-priced. I cant wait to come back here for future visits. Ill find any excuse.

Visited in March 2010. This was fantastic stop. Great beers. Great people. We had intended to have a look at some other places in Athens but ended up staying here for 6 hours. Got an impromptu tour of the brewery with the owner - the number of barrels in there with various things aging in them was mind-boggling. No bottles to go when we were there but one of the very generous regulars went home (unprompted) and picked up a couple of bottles from his personal stash to give us as a gift. The spent grain pizza hit the spot nicely. A few minor quibbles. Firstly, the place is in two completely separate parts next door to each other which I sort of realised. What I did not realise was that the two parts have different beers. As I was not inclined to venture into the "pub" part, where a very loud band was playing (and I think there was a cover charge), I missed a few beers. Secondly, there wasnt much seating in the "brewery" part. I dont know whether they had taken out some because there was live music. However, we got seats at the bar and stayed there so it wasnt a problem. Thirdly, most of the beers are big, high ABV numbers which is fine for the interest. However, since we were there for 6 hours, a few more session strength beers might have made things a bit easier (and less drunken). Overall though, a brilliant experience.
