Kentucky Irish Red Ale

Kentucky Irish Red Ale
The first brew produced by Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co, Kentucky Irish Red Ale®, is described as a marriage between two classic beer styles: Irish Red Ale and English Pale Ale.

With a light amber color, Kentucky Irish Red Ale owes its body and character to select imported malts and a pinch of wheat malt for a rich, smooth taste. This brew is placed into bourbon barrels to make the brewery’s flagship Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale®.

Pairing Suggestions

Wide range of food, roast chicken, pork, fish and chips, mild cheese such as Lancashire or Leicester.  Pairs great with an oatmeal raisin cookie for dessert.
