A walk down Court Street provides visitors a glance at the most eclectic half-mile in Athens. The streets have seen decades of change as businesses come and go with a few remaining through the centuries. As the University falls further behind and you’re path continues north towards the Armory, you’re sure to pass a growing number of bars, restaurants and shops that are behind the hustle and bustle of this old college town.
With age comes wisdom and you’d be wise to stop in through each one of Athen’s unique bars and pubs that aren’t found anywhere else in Ohio. 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.
