Beers with Bernhard: 8-Bit Blonde

We are switching things up a bit with “Beers with Beshear”. Since Governor Andy Beshear’s press conferences are becoming few and far between, we are changing the post to “Beers with Bernhard”. That’s me!

With taprooms, bars and restaurants slowly beginning to reopen across the state, the craft beer industry in Kentucky is starting to return to normalcy. Every weekend, I will continue to highlight a different Kentucky craft beer to show support of all the amazing breweries across our Commonwealth. And now that most are open, you can visit the taproom and try it yourself!

Gallant Fox Brewing Company: 8-Bit Blonde

Let’s all give a warm welcome to the new kids on the Kentucky craft beer block, Gallant Fox Brewing!!

Gallant Fox was originally planning on opening the week of the Kentucky Derby, but due to an unexpected global pandemic their grand opening was postponed. Although the brewery named for the 1930 Triple Crown winner was not allowed to have their big grand opening, Gallant Fox sold their beer t0-go to give Louisville residents a taste of what was to come.

While the official grand opening is now set for Friday, July 9th, I got a little sneak peek into the fantastically fox decorated brewery. I drank a glass of their 8-Bit Blonde Ale and I loved it. If 8-Bit is any indication of the other beers on tap, I will be going back very soon to try others.

Style: Blonde Ale

ABV: 5%

IBU: 21
