Beers with Bernhard: Aloupa

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!

Holsopple Brewing: Aloupa

I love pales ales because they are just a notch below IPAs in hoppiness and ABV.  They are refreshing and easy to drink and still have just a little hop and bitterness character to them.

Holsopple Brewing’s Aloupa is one of my favorite Pale Ales in Kentucky. It hits all the reasons is to why I love pale ales. Aloupa is short for A Louisville Pale Ale, which is a great name. This beer is brewed with Amarillo hops, my favorite type of hop. Amarillo is typical in American Pale Ales and West Coast IPAs.

Next time you’re in the Lyndon area, grab an Aloupa from Holsopple Brewing. I highly recommend it!

Description: The delicious Aloupa gets its name from A Louisville Pale Ale. The boutique of the sweet caramel malt fades to an Amarillo dry hop citrus, followed by a taste that is crisp and refreshing.

Style: Pale Ale

ABV: 6%
