Next month, Jackie O’s Pub & Brewery is releasing a brand new variant of its popular Dark Apparition to celebrate 14 years in business.
That beer is Rye Barrel Dark Apparition, a 13.6 percent ABV Russian imperial stout that has been aged in barrels that previously held Heaven Hill rye for 16 months. The new creation uses the Athens, Ohio-based brewery’s Dark Appartion as its base and will debut on during the brewery’s 14th Anniversary Extravaganza being held at Jackie O’s on Jan. 10 and Jan. 11.

Our 14th Anniversary Extravaganza is less than one month away! Join us on January 10th & 11th for our annual celebration and bottle release. The first two bottles on the list are Hive Five Reserve and Rye Barrel Dark Apparition! . 𝗛𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗙𝗶𝘃𝗲 𝗥𝗲𝘀𝗲𝗿𝘃𝗲 Reaching new heights of honey character, this special batch of Hive Five Reserve was brewed, fermented, and bottle conditioned with one of our favorite local delicacies. We started by brewing our oat saison with vibrant orange blossom honey in the kettle, then it was laid to rest in oak barrels for 23 months where it refermented on loads of local wildflower honey. To naturally carbonate this alluring beer, we primed each bottle with even more wildflower honey. 8.4% Abv. $12.99/bottle Allotments TBD .
