Beers with Beshear: Bellevue Common

You’ve heard the phrase “Beers with Beshear,” and now it’s coming to Like many Kentuckians across the state during Governor Beshear’s press conferences, we are going to start having a “Beer with Beshear” on the website.

With taprooms, bars and restaurants slowly beginning to reopen across the state, the craft beer industry in Kentucky is starting to return to normalcy. Each day I will continue to highlight a different Kentucky craft beer to show our support of all the amazing breweries across our Commonwealth. And now that most are open, you can visit the taproom and try it yourself!

Darkness Brewing: Bellevue Common

I love when breweries have a Kentucky Common on tap. If I were governor, I would require all breweries in this state to have one on tap at all times. But sadly, I am not the governor and probably never will be.

Darkness Brewing’s Bellevue Common is a fantastic representative of the style. It’s malt-forward, yet light and easy to drink like the syle is intended to be like. Whenever I visit Darkness’ taproom I always order a Bellevue Common. And sometimes, they even make variants including a pineapple and chile Bellevue Common. It was amazing.

Style: Kentucky Common

ABV: 4.8%

IBU: 14

Description: All the rage in the late 1800s, this historic beer is made with ingredients commonly found in Kentucky. Corn, barley and rye make this beer light and easy to drink.

    How is the POSG doing with the teachers pension? How is the future looking for that fund?

    our neighbor had a yard sale planned for today, but doofus Andy said no, we need social distancing, however, if you want to have a protest(riot) with thousands of people, you’re good to go!! The hypocrisy from the left is overwhelming !!

    Don’t tell Andy but I don’t think anyone is listening. Protests have revealed the hoax.
