A BEAN CULTURE X JACKIE O'S COLLABORATION.
Of all the breweries in the Midwest that barrel-age their beers, perhaps the most renowned is the Athens, Ohio-based Jackie O's. One of their best beers? BBA Oil of Aphrodite, an American double stout brewed with locally harvested black walnuts and aged in bourbon barrels for 8 to 12 months.
We spent five weeks aging green coffee beans from Huehuetenango, Guatemala, in the bourbon barrels that previously held Bourbon Barrel Aged Oil of Aphrodite. The beans were sourced, stored, and roasted by Atelier De Fer in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
