Beers with Bernhard: DankeChain

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!

My liquid fuel to help with packing.

West Sixth Brewing: DankeChain

It may be 90 degrees outside, but it is officially Oktoberfest season.

Once August arrives, breweries across the country start rolling out their fall seasonal. And as someone who loves Märzens, I’m not mad about it.

DankeChain is a very drinkable, malt-forward lager. The hop character is subtle, and not very noticeable which is common for Märzens. If this beer wasn’t a seasonal release, I could drink DankeChain all year-round.


Style: Oktoberfest (Märzen)

ABV: 5.5%


Description: Our Oktoberfest is an easy drinking medium bodied lager that is malt focused with a subtle complexity.
