Winter is closing in on us, but that means it’s time for the next Lexington Brewing & Distilling Barrel-Aged Seasonal Series!
Coming down the bottling line and onto your local store shelf is Kentucky Old Fashioned Barrel Ale. It’s a copper-colored brew that plays off the beloved taste of a bourbon Old Fashioned – the most iconic of Southern cocktails. This seasonal is brewed with tart cherries and orange peel, then aged in fresh bourbon barrels as well as bourbon barrels used to age bitters.
