Ok, this isn’t actually a local beer, but with how wacky people are about Lexington’s Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale around here (I am not one of those people wacky about it), I thought I’d put this up for you to keep an eye out for. At the Craft Beer Symposia at Teller’s this year, a representative from Lexington noted that they would be releasing a bourbon barrel-aged coffee stout, but he didn’t give any details in terms of the timeline. I’d assume, since the label has been approved, that it’s not too long from being released. Anyways, just something to watch the shelves for.
From Lexington Brewing Co.’s website:
Barrels that once contained world-famous Kentucky Bourbon lend a sweet hint of caramel and vanilla to dark-roasted malts and finish with the essence of a lightly roasted coffee. The barrel-aged flavors native to Kentucky compliment this complex stout brewed and aged with Haitian coffee to create the bourbon country’s own Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout.
Coming soon to Kentucky and Ohio markets.
