Kentucky Common is a modern interpretation of an ale style native to pre-prohibition Louisville. Historically the beer was dark in color, creamy, and tart as a result of the introduction of lactobacillus bacteria by sour mashing. Local Option Bierkwerker took up the task of brewing this once familiar style - electing to use specialty grains rather than a large percentage of corn - yielding an adventurous taste profile befitting both conventional and courageous palates.
