News & Brews No. 35: Jackie O's Dark Apparition

Jackie O’s is making one of its most revered beers more accessible. So News & Brews accessed it. The Athens brewery, for the first time ever, is canning Dark Apparition, it’s big and bold Russian imperial stout. If you’re a regular listener to News & Brews, you can guess how this news was received. The big, boozy beer news doesn’t stop there though. Zaftig Brewing Co., which also prides itself on high-test craft beer is on the verge of opening its Italian Village brewpub. We also touch on the roundtable Columbus Business First recently hosted with women from the local craft beer industry who talked openly about their experiences in this male-dominated world, the ways the industry has improved and the work that still needs to be done. So clear out some time to check out that podcast as well. Back to News & Brews, there’s some chonky cat talk, a discussion about beer or wine for Thanksgiving and a bonus primer on vacation destinations along the Indiana-Michigan border.
