Athens County is home to three fun and thrilling geocaching trails.
Athens’ east side is home to several restaurants that eat up the locavore movement and host a variety of craft beers this year as homage to this year’s Ohio Brew Week.
South Court Street is steps away from Ohio University but light years when it comes to the atmosphere surrounding the two. South Court Street acts as the gateway to Athens’ nightlife with several bars and establishments eagerly waiting to welcome those into their doors.
During Ohio Brew Week, the bars are stocked with an enormous and jaw-dropping amount of craft beers and ciders brought in from a host of Ohio breweries. You’ll find the most bars over the least distance here which makes for marking off that lengthy craft beer list that much easier.
Don’t let all those delicious beers intimidate you, we’ve grouped the different pubs and their showcased breweries into regions around Athens. If you’re walking through the West end of town, we’ve gathered up the closest pubs and breweries to make your check list that much easier to accomplish.
