FlowingData.com recently published a guide to speedily visiting the best breweries in America, and Jackie O’s is one of 72 stops. The author claims you could make the cross-country trip in about 20 days.
Jackie O’s has RateBeer.com to thank for the good press. The website, which provided the breweries for FlowingData’s list, named Jackie O’s the best brewpub in Ohio early this year.
FlowingData’s guide includes four other stops in Ohio, all of which are in the Cleveland area. No stops in West Virginia.
