LEXINGTON, Kentucky – Kentucky-based brands, Bulleit Frontier Whiskey and West Sixth Brewing have teamed up to introduce Bourbon Barrel Brownie, a limited-edition release available for beer and bourbon lovers alike, just in time for the holidays. As two brands known for delivering high-quality products while invoking a positive impact on their communities, Bulleit and West Sixth are committed to pushing the boundaries of both the craft brewing and spirits industries.
Aged in Bulleit Bourbon Barrels, cacao nibs were added to round out this Imperial Brown Ale. Perfect for the holiday season, Bourbon Barrel Brownie is reminiscent of milky, dark, and fudgy brownies with notes of that bold signature Bulleit Bourbon flavor. This silky and chocolatey treat is available for a limited time only, so act fast because this offering won’t be around for long.
“Bulleit is proud to be a part of the local Kentucky community, and we’re thrilled to partner with our neighbors at West Sixth Brewing, as they offer a new and innovative brew to share with the community,” said Ricky Collett, Global Brand Director, Bulleit Frontier Whiskey. “For Bulleit, being a part of the local community is extremely important, and we do that by partnering with those who are pushing the boundaries of their craft within their communities, like West Sixth Brewing.”
“We were inspired to push ourselves in creating a brew that speaks to the local Kentucky community ahead of the holiday season, while staying true to the innovative spirit of both Bulleit and West Sixth,” said Kelly Hieronymus, West Sixth Brewing’s creative and marketing director. “This release with Bulleit is extra special as we were able to collaborate with creative minds from within our local community. We couldn’t be happier for people to try this new barrel-aged beer in time for the holidays.”
Beginning December 6th, Bourbon Barrel Brownie will be available in limited quantities for purchase in the Northern Kentucky area. The new offering has an ABV of 10.5% and is available in 12-ounce packs of four and cases of 24 for a suggested retail price of $11.99 for a 4-pack.
