Come join us for a day of great beer and great people at Lexington, KY's Ethereal Brewing. We collaborated on a beer with Darkness Brewing and it will be released at this festival. We designed a black & white IIPA that will be, at the very least, a very different experience. This beer uses our white IPA as a starting point. From there, we boosted the ABV to meet the festival requirements of 8%, though we overdid it a tad (we estimate it finishing at 10.5%). Then, we added some roasted malts to bring out coffee, dark chocolate, and dark fruit notes. Read more about this beer here.
The Kentucky Brewer's Guild put out the invite to get as many Kentucky brewers to submit a beer for this festival. So, if there are any breweries in the Bluegrass State that you haven't had a chance to try, there is a good chance you will have a chance at this event. Check their Facebook feed and their website for more details as the event draws closer. We hope to see you there!
