As a nod to our brewery’s Commonwealth roots, we brewed a Kentucky Common, a style indigenous to the United States – Doc’s Kentucky Common.
A hefty amount of corn and rye gives it a dry crispness and a spicy finish. As a throwback to the style’s origin, we also added a touch of acidulated malt, which lends a subtle tartness to this complex replication of Bluegrass history. Smooth in body, a bounty of complimentary flavors, and lightly hopped to balance the malty sweetness, Doc’s Kentucky Common is just what the doctor ordered.
Flavor: Light on the palate with a malty, caramel sweetness, a hint of tartness, and a crisp, spicy finish.
