Over the years, we have aged countless beer styles in freshly emptied bourbon barrels to obtain that wonderful whiskey character that we all love. We decided to pay tribute to the classic American spirit by brewing a beer that captures the essence of Kentucky-borne whiskey. It began with the classic bourbon grain bill comprised of Corn, Barley, and Rye. From there, it was lightly hopped with experimental hop HBC-472 (known for its woody, coconut-like aroma), fermented with our most voracious yeast strain, and then aged in a blend of bourbon barrels from different distilleries for eight months. A big beer with a light body, expect warming notes of rich spicy fruit and oaky vanilla undertones complemented by a dry, yet smooth finish.
