Around the brewery, we listen to a lot of reggae, drink a fair share of coffee, and our devoted to our barrel aging program. There was a one-off imperial stout that had been resting in bourbon barrels for 11 months; these barrels had a strong dark chocolate presence but needed a boost. Green Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee beans made their way to Athens, OH - Stauf’s Coffee Roasters nailed the perfect roast to complement the barrel-aged stout. Champion Ground was born! A culmination of exploration and many guilty pleasures. The illustration on the label is of Charlie Ace’s Swing-A-Ling Mobile Record Shack, which was notorious for broadcasting the "Champion Sound!" Our version does this with fresh grounds and good vibes all around!
