Athens Brewery’s Beer Named To Top 50 List


ATHENS — A collaboration beer made by Little Fish Brewing Co. here was named to Men’s Journal magazine’s recent 50 Best Beers in America.

Ohio’s entry to the magazine’s list, Home Slice, was made in collaboration with North Carolina’s Fonta Flora. The Kvass-inspired barrel-aged sour ale was brewed with 275 pounds of organic sourdough bread and a sourdough starter from The Village Bakery in Athens and local juniper branches and berries, then aged for four months in wine and gin barrels, according to the Little Fish website.

“The brewery really smelled like bread,” Little Fish founder Sean White told Men’s Journal.
