This is by far the best brewery in Southeastern Ohio. Their main specialty is sour and farm style beers. I tried the No-Fi Farmhouse Ale and The Giving Tree. Both were terrific. The great thing about this place is their goal to use local and...More

My fiance and I love this place so much. The beer is always fantastic, the food is excellent, and the people are always friendly. It's an atmosphere that caters to older people, college students, children, and pets. No one will have a bad time here....More

This place is fun to go on an Ohio University Parent's Weekend. They have a food truck and the dads can go inside and grab a drink. Fun with community seating.

We did a craft beer tour of Athens and this was by far everyone’s favorite stop. Bartender was super personable. Atmosphere inside was just enough warmth and industrial. Beers were on point. Definitely a worthy stop!

Wonderful small place. Ordered a beer, I did not like the taste. The owner noticed that I didn't like the taste of it. He came over to the table and insisted on getting me another one. He helped me choose something more to my liking.

Very good beer and nice relaxing atmosphere. Good selection of beer. Friendly and knowledgeable bartender. Could use more tables for folks to set. Lot of locals relaxing on Friday night. Far away enough from uptown that there aren't students.
