Sheltowee 502 Amber This light to medium-bodied Amber Ale has a golden honey color and is full of flavor. The flavors in this beer are very similar to the New Belgium Fat Tire Ale. A light caramel malt characteristic is balanced by a soft hop bitterness in the finish. A very easy drinking beer that anyone can enjoy. Brewed by the BBC on Main St. in Louisville, KY. 5% abv.
BBC Professor Gessor is an American IPA with a slightly sweet malt profile dominated by a citrusy grapefruit hop flavor. Brewed by the BBC St. Matthews in Louisville, KY. 7.1% abv.
BBC Nut Brown A creamy, medium-bodied, brown ale with characteristics of roasted nuts (hazelnuts and pralines). Coffee, cocoa and chocolate notes are present as well as a slightly bitter finish. Brewed on Main St. in Louisville, KY. 5% abv.
Kentucky Ale A combination of an Irish Red Ale and an English Pale Ale. A copper red color with a nice balance of caramel malt and noble hops. A good session beer. Brewed by Alltech in Lexington, KY. 5% abv
Sheltowee Hop-A-Lot Perfect beer for any hop-head. A good balance between hops and malt. This full-bodied IPA has a piney, floral hop aroma. The hops dominate the flavor profile while the malt helps to balance out the finish. A great bargain for this high octane IPA. 8% abv.
