Jackie O’s Pub & Brewery is releasing two new beers tomorrow: one is a variant of a popular release while the other is the latest in an ongoing series.
The first new beer is Double Barrel Dark Apparition, a 13 percent ABV Russian imperial stout that was aged for eight months in bourbon barrels before being transferred into port barrels where it aged for an additional six months. The stout uses the Athens, Ohio-based brewery’s Dark Apparition (10 percent ABV) as its base, a beer that debuted in 2008.
In addition, Jackie O’s will be releasing Cellar Cuvée 11, an 11.6 percent ABV ale composed of five different “barley wine-esque” beers that have been aged in oak barrels for various amounts of time. As the name indicates, this is the 11th release in the series, with the first incarnation having been released in 2009.
According to a post on Jackie O’s Instagram page, Double Barrel Dark Apparition will be priced at $15.99 per 375ml bottle with 160 cases available and a purchase limit of six bottles per person per day, while Cellar Cuvée 11 will be priced at $11.99 per 375ml bottle with a purchase limit of 12 bottles per person per day. In addition, while both beers are schelulded to be released at the brewery on Jan. 6, Cellar Cuvée 11 is the only one that will see distribution to retailers in Jackie O’s distribution network.
