Jailhouse Breakout Stout

Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: Pours a nice deep black, with just the thinnest of brown showing through on the edges when held up to the light. There is one finger of tan head, consisting of tiny bubbles, that lingers for a little while after the pour.

Aroma: Smells of dark chocolate, plums, raisins, and caramel. I wish I could say that there was more roasted notes and toast in the nose, but it smells overly sweet.

Taste: Starts off roasty and sweet. The raisins and plum notes come though nicely, but there is a nice helping of roasted malt and burnt toast as well. The flavors that I wanted in the nose are coming though perfectly. The finish is nice and sweet with a big burnt toast characteristic shining though in the end.

Mouthfeel: This is Full bodied beer. There is a sweet silkiness in the start that lasts though the majority of the drink. But this beer finishes with plums and a burnt toast.

Overall: I think this is a really solid stout. It's not huge in booze, or huge in oppressive flavors. It's just right. After a long days work, I'd love relax with a bottle of this. I'm really glad to have tried it.

The Story of Jailhouse Brewing
In August of 2008, an aspiring young brewer with big dreams and neophyte confidence plunged head first into an adventure wrought with stories of mountainous challenges, perilous doubt and the occasional ghost story (more on that in a minute) determined to brew the beer he loved and wanted to share with fellow beer-loving brothers and sisters. If it weren't for the challenges posed, one might speculate whether JailHouse Brewing Company would have ever made it from paper and pen dreams to concrete and stainless steel reality. You see, it's not the fear of failure or loss that drives us, it's the fear of not trying.

Jailbird Bound:
The first step to becoming a jailbird is simple: Work next to an old, rundown city jail that happens to be for sale and buy the darn thing. That, or you could go out and get arrested, but I prefer my way. Now, since you are financially bound to said jail consider yourself a jailbird.

The second step to becoming a jailbird, in the JailHouse Brewing sense, involves learning a little science, chemistry, and engineering (I like to think of it as MacGyver-like engineering). Luckily there are schools that will happily teach you these things-even ones that are strictly about beer. My school of choice was the American Brewer's Guild and a good choice it was.

The third and final step is securing the necessary instruments and equipment to brew good beer, preferably equipment that is close by and won't require a loan from August A. Busch IV to purchase.

All of these elements will not only make you a jailbird but will also send you on your way to becoming part of a community that loves its beer and is passionate about bringing people together over a pint. You see, I know first hand. This is how I became a JailHouse Brewing Jailbird!
The Jailhouse
Some often tell me that the old Hampton Jailhouse was the overnight home to many a drunken guest through the years. It seems only fitting that beer is being brewed in this quaint little two-story brick structure built in the 1920's. It's had its history as the jail, fire station, courthouse, mason lodge, and last but not least a sandwich shop that made those little sandwiches you can buy in gas stations. You know the triangle packaged ones that have mystery meat in them? Don't lie, you've had one. Today it is home to JailHouse Brewing Company and we are brewing hand-crafted beer not punching out license plates.

Renovation of the building began in August 2008. The building was in major disrepair and needed to be, for lack of a better term, gutted. There wasn't a window worth saving and the top floor had to be removed and rebuilt. Once the walls were stripped back to the original brick they were sealed and left to show off their rustic beauty.

There is speculation of a ghost living in the building. The story goes his name is Old John and he is friendly. It was even told that he had been locked up here a time or two for, you guessed it, public drinking. I'll know who is responsible if things start moving themselves or when a filtering session poses some problems. Of course we can't blame that on the operator can we?
