    My bad. I talked to my brother earlier tonight. I thought he had got me a ticket. I found out tonight that he is going to get me a ticket in February.

    I like KBBA but I haven't had any of the other beers finished in bourbon barrels. Suggestions?

    I thought the KBBA was terrible, but I really liked Rocky's Revenge by Tyranena Brewing.

    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale

    We had some at a restaurant in Lexington last July, and it was fantastic.
    Bought 2 sixes at a liquor store to take home, and the bottles were just ho-hum.

    Must have been the ambiance.

    Are you sure you bought the same beer? Kentucky Ale/Alltech's bourbon barrel ale is only offered in 4 packs. Schlafly has a bourbon barrel ale that is similar and offered in 6 packs.

    Re: Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale

    Some bars will also have the Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale on tap. In Cambridge, MA - Mead Hall has 100 beers on tap, with the correct glasses for each type of beer, and they'll usually have 2 or 3 bourbon barrel finished beers on offer, in addition a very good Whiskey selection including reasonably priced Vintage 17yo. Plus their Pork Rinds are awesome. (my office is in the same building as theirs so I'm there entirely too often). I find I love the sweetness that barrel aging gives to an ale. Super tasty and very quaffable. Heavy Seas makes several barrel-aged beers that are usually worth trying. They change every year.
