Playing hookey in Kentucky
It has been a mad sprint since we landed back in Cincinnati, so we decided to escape the studio yesterday for a day of drinking and gambling. The rain even decided to peel away for a few hours which was considerate. Our dear friend and very knowledgeable beer man, Adam Bankovich lead the charge. On our way down to the horse races at Keeneland, we stopped at the Lexington Brewing Company for a tour and sampling. We must be honest and say that it is unfortunate that the branding for this beer does not live up to the brewery’s unbelievably rich heritage. However, they do make a tasty Bourbon Barrel Ale. While they have yet to name it, our favorite of the tastings was a thick coffee-molasses-kahlua sort of liquor served hot with cream on top. Yes.
