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.
