Beers With Bernhard: The Bearded Lady

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!


BIRCUS Brewing: The Bearded Lady

After a hot July day visiting the Cincinnati Zoo, BIRCUS Brewing’s The Bearded Lady was the perfect post-zoo beer.

It was light, bready and very refreshing, everything that makes a great Kölsch. Thankfully, no beard hair was served with this beer.

Description: Using Blue Oven Bakery’s bread to supplement the grain bill in this Kolsch Style Ale imparts a toasted bread finish to this light, easy drinking beer. German Mandarina hops add a subtle orange aroma.

Style: Kölsch

ABV: 4.8%

IBU: 25
