Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale Debuts in the City

One of our most requested beers not in distribution (until now) in Illinois is finally debuting at our stores.  While perhaps not reaching the number of daily requests that other unavailable beers like New Glarus Spotted Cow and Yuengling tally, Kentucky Bourbon Ale is not too far behind.


Award winning Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale (silver medal at 2007 GABF) 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 Kentuckys 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.


Also arriving at Binny’s from the Lexington Brewing and Distilling Co. is Kentucky Ale, a light and refreshing beer described by the brewery as ..a marriage between two classic beer styles, Irish Red Ale and English Pale Ale..


Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale and Kentucky Ale are currently available only at our stores in the city.  The brewery is looking at expanding their footprint into the suburbs; this can’t come soon enough.
