Lexington Brewing (Lexington, KY) has released a new, limited seasonal Kentucky Rye Barrel IPA.
The base beer is an imperial IPA brewed with copious amounts of rye malt, the aged six weeks in Alltech’s own Town Branch Rye Whiskey barrels and Kentucky bourbon barrels. The result is a bright, citrusy IPA, that finishes with a strong barrel character.
“Distillers discovered rye decades ago and embraced it for its spicy, complex character,” said Ken Lee, master brewer for Alltech Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. “Today, more brewers have also embraced rye thanks to the complex notes it can add. With the spice from our Town Branch Rye barrels and the unique dry hopping we did in the barrel, I think craft beer fans will love this crisp seasonal beer.”
Kentucky Rye Barrel IPA is available in 12oz bottles for a limited time.
