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.

Hi Rick! Katherine Younger here :) Somehow I stumbled upon your blog and just wanted to say hi and that the Bourbon Barrel is one of my favorite beers!

I'm still writing my blog - www.Katheats.com (it's my full-time job now!), am now a Registered Dietitian, and am opening a Great Harvest Bread co. in Charlottesville VA, where we just moved.

Hope all's well with you - jealous you're at the beer festival this weekend!
