Award-winning Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale® is a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of well-crafted bourbon.
Aged for up to six 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, it may also be served as an aperitif or after-dinner drink. Launched in 2006, it has grown to become the flagship beer of the premier name in barrel-aged beers: Alltech Lexington Brewing & Distilling Company.
PAIRING SUGGESTIONS — Rich spicy foods like barbecued beef, Oaxacan mole, or hearty Szechuan dishes. Great with buttery, well-aged cheddar. Pairs with desserts like milk chocolate, cream puffs; try it as a float with vanilla or caramel ice cream.
