The last episode of our Brews Summer Style series originated right here in the South! The Lexington Brewing Co.’s Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Strawberry Ale is the closing feature of this year. Aged for 6 weeks in bourbon barrels with real strawberries, the sweetness of the berries makes for a refreshing addition. This brew has an IBU of 19 and ABV of 8%.
Lexington Brewing Co. recommends trying the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Strawberry Ale with light summer dishes. Sweets such as ice cream and milk chocolate are perfect for this sweet brew. They even suggest using the beer in chocolate and vanilla floats. For bourbon fans this is a must try, so be sure to pick up a 6 pack of bottles at your local retailers!
