The federal Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau -- commonly known as the TTB -- has approved the labels for Jackie O's canned beers. (See Chomolungma and Firefly Amber labels below.)
"Over the next month or so, the cans will be produced," brewer Brad Clark said in an email. "Look for them to show up on shelves in southeast Ohio late January or early February. Pretty exciting!"
Jackie O's, now a brewpub, is opening a separate production brewery in Athens and will start distributing three of its beers -- Chomolungma, Firefly Amber and Mystic Mama -- in cans.
Jackie O's is one of three Ohio breweries to make Ratebeer.com's list of "Best Brewers in the World 2012." It ranks as the 56th best brewery. Hoppin' Frog in Akron (20th) and Great Lakes in Cleveland (45th) are the others.
