Bluegrass Pale Ale is brewed with a combination of Two-Row Pale, Special B, and Cara Munich malts as well as Flaked Barley. Dave hops it up with Centennial hops primarily for bittering and Willamette hops for their aromatic contributions. Bluegrass Pale Ale is a Real Ale Festival "Best of Fest Winner" and a favorite of locals in Louisville. We found this dark copper/amber colored ale to be full bodied and offering and aggressive floral hop character. It's actually quite well balanced for such a hoppy beer. Note some fruitiness on the palate and in the nose. Overall, a full flavored, big pale ale worthy of its accolades. Enjoy!
Founded in 1993 in Louisville, Kentucky, Bluegrass Brewing is the envy of many microbreweries and brewpubs. Besides having won ten national competition medals, most of which were awarded at the Real Ale Fest and Great American Beer Festival, they have also been selected by the authors of "Beer for Dummies" as one of America's top ten breweries.

One of their most impressive accomplishments was beating out Sierra Nevada's Bigfoot and Anchor's Old Foghorn in the Barley wine category at the 1997 Great American Beer Festival. Beer lovers covet these two beers as they are truly exceptional beers and beating them out is nothing to sneeze at!

Besides brewing great beers, Bluegrass also runs a brewpub. Opened a year after the brewery, the restaurant is housed in a large building that originally housed a seafood version of the Chi-Chi's chain. The interior was renovated and a working brewery was installed. The main area of the restaurant is divided into two large rooms with a see-in kitchen in-between. And like any good brewpub, there is a full service bar with large screen TVs and taps galore. Diners at the brewpub can watch through the big glass windows as Brewmaster Dave Pierce and assistant Matt Gould work their brewing mojo!
