In 2003, Kim Jones obtained a recipe from a family member that was different from any other recipe she had used. She began experimenting with the recipe, changed some of the ingredients and created Jailhouse Jalapeno Brew, a truly unique and delicious grilling and mixing sauce.
The unique name Jailhouse Jalapeno Brew was selected because Kim is employed by the Missouri Department of Corrections. She started her service in 1994 at the old Missouri State Penitentiary in Jefferson City, MO, the oldest operating maximum security prison west of the Mississippi River. It was opened in 1836 and was decommissioned in 2004, and hosted some of the most infamous criminals in the country, such as, Pretty Boy Floyd, James Earl Ray, and Sonny Listen. M.S.P. inherited the nick name "the bloodiest 40 acres" because of the violence that took place between convicts housed inside its walls.
After Kim created the Jailhouse Jalapeno Brew she continually cooked up batches to sell locally and to give away to friends and family. It was with their encouragement and the positive feedback from customers that she out-sourced its production for national distribution. Jailhouse Jalapeno Brew can now be found in grocery stores, gourmet and specialty stores, coo-ops and specialty retailers across the country.
