“Local Option KY Common”

Status: Our Collection

Insert: [Personal Lubricant joke],[Semen Joke].

Kentucky Common Beer is a once-popular style of ale
brewed in and around Louisville, Kentucky. The style
is rarely brewed commercially today, so that is why the
Local Option Bierwerker dropped in to brew up a batch
here at Against the Grain. The grist bill includes
Munich, Aromatic, and Crystal malts to give this beer a
strong backbone, naked oats boost mouthfeel, and
Carafa I gives it its dark color. The malty sweetness
was offset by a controlled souring of the mash with a
strain of lactobacillus, and small additions of East Kent
Goldings hops give just a touch of bitterness.


ABV: 6.0% IBU: 27.0

Origin: Noah's garage experiment in 2005.
