Ohio Brewery News
Little House on the Brewery
As beer tourism looks to rebound from the effects of the pandemic, more and more breweries are crafting accommodations to attract traveling beer fans.
Last week, Little Fish Brewing announced a new addition to their brewery: a renovated 1870s farmhouse adjacent to the brewery property available for rental through Airbnb. The four bedroom, two bathroom house can accommodate groups of up to 13 guests, or serve as a cozy, private getaway for couples and families. Order “room service” from the brewery and they’ll deliver beer and food right to the front door while you’re a guest on the property.
Athens has long been a popular drinking destination for people vacationing in southeast Ohio’s Hocking Hills, with Little Fish, Jackie O’s and Devil’s Kettle attracting adventurous beer drinkers in search of local libations. Now, beer tourists can use the rental house at Little Fish as a home base when exploring the area’s breweries and collecting Ohio On Tap passport stamps.
Little Fish joins a small but growing number of Ohio breweries offering overnight lodging through Airbnb, including Dalton Union Winery & Brewery in Marysville, Fibonacci Brewing in Cincinnati, Sandy Springs Brewing in Minerva and BrewDog in Columbus, which also operates the Doghouse hotel adjacent to their brewery and taproom in Canal Winchester. Just up the road from Athens, The Lodge at Hocking College in Nelsonville is not only a full service hotel, but also houses Star Brick Brewery, where students in the school’s fermentation science program learn the fundamentals of brewing.
