Pour One Nine — the only Ohio beer festival held on the grounds of a former state prison — returns Thursday (May 9) to the Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield.

The event, which runs from 5:30 to 9 p.m., will showcase the following breweries: BrewDog, Great Black Swamp, JAFB, Laxton Hollow, Little Fish, Phoenix, Stein, Twin Oast and Uniontown. There also will be wine, music, tours of the cell blocks and a ghost hunt after dark.

"It’s one of my favorites because it’s not too crowded, and in one of the coolest locations ever for a beer fest," beer writer Karen Bujak wrote on her blog https://ohiobrewmuse.com/.

The Ohio State Reformatory opened in 1896 and housed prisoners until 1990. It's most famous for serving as the prison in the movie Shawshank Redemption and attracts thousands of tourists each year. In addition to Shawshank tours — this year marks the 25th anniversary of the film — it hosts paranormal ghost walks and Halloween haunts.

Shawshank wasn't the only movie shot at the prison. Tango & Cash, Air Force One and the upcoming action movie Escape Plan 3: Devil's Station had scenes at the reformatory.

General admission tickets are $45. Early entry tickets are $55.
