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: Kentucky Common
It has been a week since it was reported that Stone Brewing 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 and officially meet the three owners, Blake Nickell, Derek Caskey and Nicholas Hollan.
The first beer I ordered was Sawstone’s Kentucky Common. And that was a great choice. Probably one of the two best Kentucky Common’s I’ve ever had (Dreaming Creek’s Kentucky Common being the other).
It was light tasting, dark in color with a little malty sweetness that makes Kentucky Commons so unique. I could have drunk this beer all evening, but I decided to switch it up after two pints to try something else. I, however, made sure to leave with a crowler of the Kentucky Common to enjoy at home.
