Coast into southeastern Ohio’s beer scene via Brewed on the Bikeway, a new ale trail that connects four breweries and one cider house along an old railroad line in Athens County.
Created by the Athens County Visitors Bureau, the trail offers a nifty way to sample quality craft brews while cycling a 21-mile, scenic path from Athens, Ohio, to Nelsonville, Ohio.
“It’s one of the only bikeway-brew tours in the U.S.,” says Paige Alost, executive director of Athens County Visitors Bureau. “It’s great for avid and novice bike riders and a fun way to see the beauty of southeast Ohio.”
In addition to beer, riders will discover lots of delectable, local food in Athens County. That’s because many Athens restaurateurs take pride in using ingredients produced within a 30-mile radius of the city.
“We’re about keeping it hyper local,” says Cameron Fuller of Devil’s Kettle Brewing in Athens. “If you want to try our beers you have to come to southeast Ohio.”
