Alltech Releasing Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale in Cans

24 October 2016

From Alltech:

[LEXINGTON, KY] – Just over 11 years after the introduction of Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale®, the beloved Kentucky Proud™ barrel-aged brew is showing up with a new look. On Oct. 26, Alltech Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. will release Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale in six-packs of aluminum cans.

Designed to look like the bourbon barrel that the brew ages inside, the new cans will show consumers exactly what they are getting.  

“We are very proud to be ‘The Beer of Bourbon Country,’ and our new cans embrace that, showcasing the best ingredient in the beer: the barrel,” said Ken Lee, master brewer for Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co.

Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale was the third product produced by Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. and quickly became their best seller. The first shipments across state lines began in 2008 to Ohio, and now in 2016, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale can be found in 27 states with plans for three more by the end of the year.

Matt Cordle, regional sales manager, said, “It is very unique to have a barrel-aged beer offering available year-round to consumers, and this new package will allow us to access craft beer drinkers in ways we couldn’t with glass bottles.”

Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale cans will be available to consumers on Oct. 26, in Lexington, Kentucky, and across all 27 states of distribution the first week of November. Look for them at your local retail beverage outlets.
