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!
Sawstone Brewing Co: Amber
It has been a week since it was reported that Stone Brewing (Escondido, CA) filed a cancellation request to Sawstone Brewing in Morehead, Kentucky for the use of the word “stone” in their name.
Since the story came out on Sunday, it has gone viral within Kentucky and the beer world. And because of that, I figured I had to make the two-hour drive to Morehead to visit Sawstone Brewing. I told you about the Kentucky Common on Saturday, and today I am here to tell you about the Amber.
A beer style that I always forget I really enjoy drinking is an Amber. You don’t see many breweries making one in our IPA dominated beer era. That’s why when I saw it on Sawstone’s tap list, I wanted to try it. And it was delicious. It reminded me why I love Ambers. It was light but malty lager with a little sweetness to it. The color of the Sawstone Amber beer was fantastic too.
