It's a double
release! Calico Jack and
Carolus Magnus ARE real, and finally ready for for release. The
brewery-only event for both beers will be Saturday, October 31st.
Yep, Halloween. Sales start at 9am that day.
Check out the event poster here!
Both beers are extremely limited. The bottle limit for Calico Jack is 6 per person and for Carolus Magnus it's 12 per person. We don't expect there will be enough left over for distribution!!
What are Calico Jack and Carolus Magnus? Calico Jack is an Imperial Stout aged in rum barrels for 14 months, with a magical combination of coconut, vanilla, cayenne pepper, and coffee beans added. Yes, it is awesome. And Carolus Magnus is a Armagnac barrel-aged Quad with rose hips, figs, and raisins added. Also awesome.
Both will be on tap at the brewery for the release, $5 per pour. And, remember the nice glasses we had for the Omega Point release? We have some new ones for Carolus Magnus that will also be available. Bottles are $20 each. We also invite you to an event at the brewery the Friday night before (10/30), starting at 6pm. Come see our shiny new equipment, our not-so-shiny barrels for aging, hear the story of the beers, and maybe try a brew or two.
We'll post more details as they are set. Thanks for all of your support, it's why we make these beers!
Greetings from Olde Hickory Brewery, nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Hickory, North Carolina.
Beginning in 1994 with a 7 barrel converted dairy system, we set and accomplished the goal of providing the unique traditional ales & lagers available through OHB. Quickly we outgrew that system and today we operate a 25-barrel Price Schonstrom brew house...
In 1997, OHB began the renovation of an 1880 Historic Landmark building in downtown Hickory, which now houses our brewing facilities.
Great beer is the result of meticulous attention to detail throughout the brewing process. Our beers begin their life as fresh water that flows from the granite slopes of the Blue Ridge and culminate in small batches less than 800 gallons each.
Our beers are and have always been, brewed using only select grains, robust hops and cultured yeast, with no additives or preservatives.
These basic ingredients are added with time, passion and the
undying thirst for knowledge to produce our variety of quality brews
that we're sure you'll enjoy!
