Summer in Athens #2 – Ohio Brew Week

with one comment

@Alex K. Stein

This summer, I worked for Ohio Brew Week, which meant attending OBW events, drinking amazing craft beer from Ohio’s breweries and taking some fun pictures. Every event was different, even each tasting was done differently. The music was great, the people were great and the beer, of course, was great. I would recommend anyone who has never been to attend if they can. Anyone who’s been already knows that they want to, and probably will, come back to Athens for OBW.

My favorite part of the week, besides the beer, was the night I shot a show at Jackie O’s. The headlining band, if you can call them that for playing with one other band at bars and small venues, Holy Ghost Tent Revival, played a show that I have never experienced before. It started out slow and everyone was digging the music, and a couple was even dancing but they seemed drunk. Suddenly, the floor of Jackie O’s was covered in people dancing to this music which sounded like a post-punk rock bluegrass folk ska mixture that’s just wonderful, and really inspires you to dance. Between dancing, Jackie O’s beer and taking pictures, it had to be the best night of Brew Week.
