Day 254 Drink: Bluegrass Brewing Bourbon Barrel Stout
Bluegrass Brewing Co. has three locations in the Louisville area. The company was established in 1993.
Bluegrass Bourbon Barrel Stout is part of the brewery's Clay Street Series. The company first made this beer in 2005, aging the stout in Bourbon barrels for approximately 60 days. The beer is a dark brown black color with a thin tan head. There is a pleasant vanilla Bourbon aroma to the beer. The flavor has a nice chocolate malt base. Good hints of the Bourbon barrel aging throughout. The beer finishes with a slightly sweet note.
