Some more info about the beers being tapped…

Race Day

A session-style IPA that boasts a low, 4.5% alcohol by volume. Hops in the brew include Calypso and Cascade, with Hallertau in the dry-hop. As Lexington Brewing was getting ready to release this beer, they heard about a fire at Old Friends thoroughbred retirement facility in Georgetown, Kentucky. The non-profit organization takes care of former racehorses, giving them a happy retirement. While the fire didn’t hurt people or horses, the fire was damaging to the organization. Coinciding with the launch, the brewery will be donation a portion of the proceeds from April 1st through May 8th to Old Friends. – So drink up!

Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale

This is a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted bourbon. Our Kentucky Ale® is 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,

Kentucky Peach Barrel Wheat Ale

This is a light, crisp ale perfect for lazy, sun-drenched summer days. Images of your real (or fanciful) old Kentucky home in bourbon country are conjured up with every sip, thanks to the brew’s six-week aging period in fresh Kentucky bourbon barrels. Our barrel-aging process balances hints of caramel and vanilla and subtle cereal notes with the juiciness of a fresh ripe peach, creating a golden color. Enjoy this light-bodied, refreshing offering before the bright rays of summer fade into fall.
