Athens-based Jackie O's Pub & Brewery to sell its craft beer in supermarkets across Ohio

ATHENS, Ohio - Ohio University alumni and beer fans alike across Ohio will soon see a new beverage in the beer isle from a familiar name.

Jackie O's Pub & Brewery in Athens plans to start selling its beer in supermarkets in Ohio, the owner Art Oestrike told WOUB News in Athens.

The pub, known for its unique craft beer selection, recently opened a new facility in Athens to begin mass production of its brews. The beer will be canned and shipped to stores. Prior to the opening of this this facility, Jackie O's was only able to ship barrels.

"You know not everyone goes to bars. Not everyone goes to those drinking holes around the area but most everybody finds themselves in the grocery store or the carry outs from time to time," Oestrike said in an interview with WOUB.

There's no word yet exactly when the beer will start appearing in northern Ohio stores.
