King Louis XVI, our Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Kentucky Common, is now available in 22oz bombers. This is the second release in our “Small Batch Series” following Subtle Beast (Imperial Stout) which was released in February 2017. Our Small Batch Series consists of limited edition beers brewed on our 7bbl system on 10th street in downtown Louisville.
King Louis XVI all started with our recipe for Kentucky Common, the only beer style native to Louisville. Except for this, at the Mayor’s request, we doubled the recipe giving the beer a good deal of sweetness with a dash of spice from the corn, barley and rye. Finally, to make a beer that would live up to our city’s namesake, we aged it in Kentucky bourbon barrels for two months.
The result is this unique, bourbon aged beer with notes of oak, vanilla and caramel. Look for it on shelves at your local liquor/beer store throughout Kentucky.
