Award winning Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale® 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 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 Bourbon Barrel Ale may also be served as an aperitif or after dinner drink.
|Lexington Brewing and Distilling Co. consists of our brewery as well as our Town Branch Distillery, which was added to the Kentucky Bourbon Trail® in October 2012 and became the first distillery built in Lexington in more than 100 years.
We began brewing our award-winning Kentucky Ale® in 2000 in downtown Lexington, Ky, and began distilling several years later. Our continually-growing Kentucky Ale family of brews includes Kentucky Ale®, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale®, Kentucky Kolsch, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout, and Kentucky IPA. Our line of spirits includes Town Branch® Bourbon, Pearse Lyons Reserve®, and Bluegrass Sundown®. Our facility is the oldest craft brewery in the city and is one of the few joint brewing and distilling operations in the world.
