While visiting Jackie O’s (Athens, Ohio) production brewery and tap room, I found these blocks in the entrance way and others nearby. If you are new to Athens you will find many of the nearby streets are still made of these blocks. Jackie O’s is a pretty amazing place. This site features a small taproom, an event space, a sour beer program and solar panels that supply over 60% of the energy needs of the site.


Jackie O’s Brewpub (the original location) in uptown Athens also has a good supply of blocks in the back patio area. After visiting the taproom, I visited their farm to learn about growing hops and found the wonderful pizza over you see below. Craft Beer and craft blocks go great together. But a pizza oven (which is my goal) is even better.
