OBW is a 9 day long celebration of Ohio craft beer. Every Summer, the best craft brews from all over the state take over the taps in Athens. From July 10-18, uptown will become a gathering place for brewers and beer lovers to drink together and toast with a huge array of Ohio’s finest beers. Local food becomes infused with brews as some of Athens’ best restaurants create special dishes incorporating Ohio beer, or team up with breweries for special beer pairing dinners.
A community tradition
OBW is founded on a strong tradition of community involvement. As 2015 is the tenth anniversary, we aim to honor the origins of OBW and the amazing people that made it all happen. Please check out our “beer-soaked history” page and raise a glass to everyone who has helped OBW become a premier celebration of craft beer.
A week of craft beer events
Stay up to date with our events page for updates on all of the music, barbecues and beer talks, including the “Last Call” street party. Over 30 breweries pour craft beer as OBW takes over the bricks with music, local art and food. It’s our tenth anniversary, so you won’t want to miss what we have in store.
