JACKIE O'S X OHIO: RICKY! Coming this July!

Iron Furnace

Barleywine style Ale brewed with brown sugar and maple syrup aged in bourbon barrels

In the late 1800’s, iron furnaces around the Southeast Ohio area burned red hot, smelting ore into iron. The Hope Furnace outside of Athens County operated from 1854-1874, producing 15 tons of iron a day. The structure still stands today and was the inspiration for the biggest, richest, and burliest barleywine style ale we have ever produced. It was brewed with a ludicrous amount of local maple syrup and aged for 18 months in some of our favorite bourbon barrels.
