[dropcap]O[/dropcap]hio Brew Week wrapped up its eventful eight-day festival with Last Call on Court Street Saturday.

Last Call featured dozens of craft breweries from all over Ohio, along with various art and food vendors and performances from six local bands.

The brewing companies were sheltered under large labeled tents and spread up and down Court Street. Despite the gloomy weather, community members and out-of-town guests gathered to share these featured brews from companies such as Cleveland’s Great Lakes Brewing Company, Toledo’s Great Black Swamp Brewing Company and Cincinnati’s Rhinegeist Brewery.

“The purpose is to highlight the Ohio craft beer industry. So we bring almost any micro-brewery who wants to participate down to Athens and put them on tap,” said Weston Lombard, director of Ohio Brew Week.
