Ohio Brew Week's culminating weekend ran head-on into Excessive Heat Warnings throughout the country's mid-section and East, though heat indexes well over 100 Fahrenheit didn't seem to impede the fun.

The BrewBQ Friday afternoon and evening at the Athens Train Depot also drew a healthy crowd, as did the Last Call street party all day and evening on North Court Street's two blocks.

Last Call especially had plenty of available water (free in front of Artifacts), and everyone had easy access to air-conditioned street-side bars, restaurants and businesses. The NEWS will add more details once we touch base with OBW officials about how things went from their end.
