On Jan. 5, Jackie O’s Pub & Brewery is releasing five new beers to celebrate a dozen years in business.
Leading off the list items available are three varieties of the Athens, Ohio-based brewery’s Russian imperial stout Dark Apparition: Bourbon Barrel Dark Apparition, Vanilla Coffee Bourbon Barrel Dark Apparition and Apple Brandy Barrel Dark Apparition. Each varietal comes in at 12.5 percent ABV and is packaged in 375ml bottles and will retail for $11.99 each. There will be a 12 bottle purchase limit per person per day for Bourbon Barrel Dark Apparition and Vanilla Coffee Bourbon Barrel Dark Apparition, while the Apple Brandy variant will be limited to six bottles per person per day.
Next up is Herringbone, a sour blond ale conditioned on local strawberries and aged in oak barrels. The new beer will be packaged in 375ml bottles ($14.99), with approximately 40 cases produced and will be limited to one bottle per person per day.
Another new beer is Houndstooth, which Jackie O’s describes as “pretty much black raspberry Dynamo Hum.” According to the brewery, the higher concentration of fruit results in a purple beer that “makes for one of the most fruit forward beers we have ever produced.” Houndstooth is packaged in 500ml bottles ($17.99) and will have a six bottle per person per day limit.
Jackie O’s will also be offering Provender, and ale brewed with fresh harvested alfalfa that is “the first primary mixed fermentation done at the uptown location.” Provender is packaged in 375ml bottles ($9.99) that will be limited to one bottle per person per day.
Finally, the brewery will be releasing the 2017 vintage of Spirit Beast, Jackie O’s “annual blend with local Cantina and Gallo’s utilizing their single barrel bourbon selection barrels and some of our favorite barrels from the Jackie O’s barrel room”, according to a post on the brewery’s website. Spirit Beast 2017 will feature a purchase limit of six 375ml bottles per person per day, with each bottle retailing for $11.99.
