Against The Grain Brewery & Smokehouse, located in Louisville, KY at Slugger Field, will be doing a semi-annual release of one of their most sought after and revered brews!
Bo & Luke is a collaboration beer first brewed in the summer of 2012 with the Dutch brewmaster of DeMolen, Menno Oliver. Menno has garnered a reputation for being one of the best brewers in the craft beer world.
This beer is a big-ass barrel aged imperial stout, that truly does beat all you ever saw. Bo & Luke is conditioned in freshly dumped Kentucky Bourbon barrels for up to 120 days. The result is a dark, smokey beer with all the benefits of an imperial stout, and then some!
Against the Grain will release Bo & Luke on September 14th at 5pm during Louisville Craft Beer Week.
We will be releasing “Bo & Luke” to the public on September 14th at 5pm at their 2nd Annual Bo & Luke Release Party. According to the press release:
“The celebration will include a VERY LIMITED amount of Bo & Luke on draft, a limited number of 750mL bottles, and a special release of 4 packs that include 4 different incarnations of Bo & Luke. There will be a special appearance of The General Lee & Hazzard County Police Cruiser along with the foot stompin’, rockabilly sounds of The Solid Rock’It Boosters.”
(In case you didn’t know, that’s the band I play drums in. Come see us, we guarantee foot stompin’!)
Back to the press release:
“A pre-sale of the 4 packs will begin on August 31st @ 5pm at Against The Grain. There will be no phone orders for the pre-sale, it is an ‘in person’ purchase only. The pre-sale price will be $69 +tax. Those getting a pre-sale ‘stub’ will get their 4 pack on September 14, by presenting the stub at the Bo & Luke Release Party. Any remaining 4 packs will be sold on September 14th after 5pm at a different rate and on a ‘first come, first serve’ basis.”
