Head to Columbus Road for Devilishly good brews
For years, Devil’s Kettle owner and brewer Cameron Fuller won award after award at the Ohio Brew Week Homebrew Competition.
As the accolades piled up, Cameron kept being pushed in one direction– open his own brewery.
Thankfully for Athens (and Ohio) he did just that in June 2015. He took his recipe book and worked to scale up those decorated brews on a state-of-the-art system, while creating some new ones in the process.
While the brewery’s name is somewhat sinister, Fuller is also fan of understated and approachable beer styles such as English Milds and dark lagers, providing a refreshing respite from the world of extreme brews. But he can do those too. Just watch for the range of unique offerings and barrel-aged beers he’s sure to release this year.
Since opening, Devil’s Kettle has added a beautiful patio, installed a solar panel array beside the brewery and added more beer taps (including two nitro) along with nonalcoholic offerings such as house-brewed ginger ale.
It’s the perfect spot to escape uptown, enjoy the patio and try out The Kitchen at Devil’s Kettle, a restaurant by Pork & Pickles, a local Athens gourmet food company.
If you come into town on Columbus Road, Devil’s Kettle will be the first brewery you see. Just look for the devilishly red building. And make sure to follow them on social media so you don’t miss any special releases during the week!
