Ohio Brew Week kicked off this past weekend (starting Friday, July 12) with plenty of events, large and small, including the brand-new 'First Call' block party Saturday afternoon on West State Street, near Casa Cantina and Tony's Tavern.

Continuing the excitement, the Appalachian Hell Betties (Athens' roller-derby team) waged an all-out brawl at the Athens Community Center early Saturday evening with the Gem City Roller Derby term (from Dayton). The Hell Betties won handily over the visiting team, with more than a 100-point lead.

You'll see photos from both events in this photo gallery. All photos and words by Associate Editor Conor Morris.
