Tomorrow we will be releasing two new Saisons: Off The Beaten Path 1 & Off The Beaten Path 2. Both will be available at the Taproom and at the Public House starting at 11am. . Off the Beaten Path 1 was inspired by the classic Saisons that exude balance, grace, and innocence. Fermented with traditional Saison yeast strains in stainless steel and bottled conditioned with our proprietary mixed Saison culture. OTBP 1 dances on the palate with light nuances of pome fruit, peppercorns, herbaceous undertones, and straw. 5.5%ABV . Off the Beaten Path 2 was inspired by the resurgence of heirloom grains being harvested and malted. Riverbend Malt House out of North Carolina did just this with the rye varietal, Wrens Arbuzzi. Fermented in stainless steel and bottled conditioned with our proprietary mixed Saison culture. OTBP 2 showcases a bright tart character paired with notes of peppercorns, herbaceous spiciness, and fresh lemon zest. 5.5%ABV . #saison #offthebeatenpath #jackieosbrewery #athensohbeer

Jim asked Sandy about the above drawing
A fellow by the name of Rod Nippert gave me a call one day way back when, wanting me to come up with something to use for a new venture he was embarking on: raspberry farming. Seemed like my big chance—an opportunity to break into into the lucrative field of southeastern Ohio produce art.
Well, not really.
Rod didn't have much money to pay for the work, but for a month or two I was eating more red raspberries than you could imagine. He used the logo on his business cards and eventual had it blown up and put on the side of his pickup.
Jim: Walking through Seaman's grocery store, this Shade Winery bottle featuring Sandy's artwork caught my eye. While posted on this blog previously, I couldn't resist another look at this label artwork.
