Notes / Commercial Description:
Award winning Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale is a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted bourbon. Our Kentucky Ale is aged for up to 6 weeks in freshly decanted bourbon barrels from some of Kentucky’s finest distilleries. Subtle yet familiar flavors of vanilla and oak are imparted to this special ale as it rests in the charred barrels. Pleasantly smooth and robust, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale may also be served as an aperitif or after dinner drink.

This bourbon barrel aged ale is actually crafted and made in Kentucky, and is one of the only Bbls I've had to really get the bourbon feel into its beer. Thick and rich, with a sweet vanilla and caramel aftertaste, all while getting the special zing of bourbon throughout.
