A girls guide to Ohio Brew Week

Grab your gals and get to Athens!

See why Ohio Brew Week could be one of the best girl trips of the summer.


First things first. Let’s start with the beer. It is Ohio Brew Week, after all. I, for one, LOVE craft brews. Think they aren’t for you? Perhaps… but you may be surprised. How about a what ale with peaches & apricot? That’s what you’ll get with a Jackie O’s Kinda Fuzzy. Or, one of my personal favs, the Bumble Berry – a honey blueberry Ale from Fat Heads Brewing Co. available in bottles at The Cat’s Eye this week. A full list of brews and where to find them will be available on the OBW site – HERE.



Food pairings and meals prepped with craft brews will be on the menu all week. Oh the epicurean joy! Grab the gals and head to one of my favorite breweries, Little Fish, to sip brews and dine on THE BEST grits, fried green tomatoes and boudin balls (and much more) from The Cajun Clucker. Find a daily list of events, including all food pairings on the OBW site.



Rock-N-RoastOn Friday, July 14, Ohio Brew Week officially kicks off at The Ohio University Inn with the annual Rock N’ Roast. Enjoy live music, a BBQ buffet & and a beer garden featuring Jackie O’s, Little Fish, Devils Kettle & Maple Lawn Brewery from 5:00-9:30. A signature event for the fest!




BBQ, brews, classic cars, live music and dancing. I don’t know about you, but to me, that sounds like the perfect way to spend an evening! On Friday, July 21, find me (and a wealth of other fun-lovers!) at the ever popular Brew BQ. Enjoy music from one of the best bands in Athens, The Wild Honeybees.



Grab your best girls and go out dancing! So much musical talent in Athens and much of it will be on display during Ohio Brew Week. Find live music nightly at many of the uptown restaurants and pubs including Casa Nueva, The Smiling Skull Saloon and Jackie O’s.




Last Call instashare @kacybotkin

And finally, end a fun filled week with the gals with the aforementioned Last Call. This day and evening long street festival combines all of the best of Ohio Brew Week; the brews, food, art, music, dancing and more, right on the bricks of Court Street. Eat, shop, sip, dance and mingle with your people in the summer sun, in the greatest place ever. An excellent way to wrap up the week.
