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.

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.

Despite the crowds the services at the public house was generally solid. With 30+ beers on tap you will have no problem locating something to tick. I do not know if the sample sizes are offered all the time but if so it is an even better way to experience the full range of Jackie Os beers.

Full pints were fairly priced as well. Given the huge range I can only hope that they continue to expand around Ohio beyond the few that are already in cans. If you only have room in your schedule for a single stop make it this place despite the tricky parking situation.

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.

This place seems like a typical bullet proof varnished wood college bar when you walk in. But looks are deceiving. The food is fancy pub grub. My pesto something sandwich was very nice. The beers are something else altogether. It is worth the drive for the Dark Apparition. When I was there they had some huge single hops on, with lots of others that I did not sample. Athens Ohio is not an easy place to get to, but it is worth the detour from Columbus to drink the beer.

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.

Went by the pub on a trip through Athens, parking situation was typical downtown, but eventually found a spot. Service was excellent, tried a bunch of really enjoyable beers than ran the gamut as far as styles were concerned. Ambiance was a pub with character. Nice to try the normal beers then try a chardonnay barrel saison and a citra IPA and a chocolate imperial stout. Great place. I will stop by every time I am anywhere near Athens.

Been here a bunch of times. Unfortunately is was not Jackie Os when I went to OU, but it is a great spot to hit when I visit my Alma Mater. I prefer the brewery side to the public house, but both are nice. Always have great service, the food is good to pretty good and the beers are excellent. A bit out of the way in Ohio, but it is definitely worth the stop if you are anywhere near.

I freaking love this place. Ambiance is two fold. The publick house side, is a nice long wooden bar with tons of tables to drink and a nice stage up front. Brewery side is a lot more eclectic and homey, with big barrels for tables and lots of wodden carvings, but can get a little cramped. Service has always been pretty good and friendly everytime i;ve gone. Selection is amazing. At least 30 of their own beers on tap at once. who can beat that. Any breakfast or lunch ive ever had here was pretty damn good as well. Food and beer on tap is pretty cheap, especially since you can get decent samples of anythingfor $1-2. Overall worth the stop if anywhere near athens.

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.
