From www.ohiobreweek.com: The farm-to-table local food culture that Athens is nationally known for gives the Ohio craft brewing industry a fun place to visit not only for those who enjoy drinking craft brews, but also the farmers who grow the ingredients, the brewers who concoct the brews, the distributors who deliver the kegs (cans and bottles, oh my!), and the restaurants and bars who serve the drinks.
While the main focus has been on beer, we recognize the importance of other growing craft brewing businesses to our state’s economy. Wineries, meaderies, distilleries, and cideries all work hard to bring you the best in (and from!) their fields. We welcome these fine Ohio craft products (and beer!) to our festival.
