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.
Clarity: Pours a deep amber with a white head.
Aroma: Corn-like, with a caramel malt accent.
Series: Limited

Doc’s Kentucky Common

An infamous night that ended with a bullet through a doctor’s heart and a man sent to hang from the gallows. While staying at the home of Cat McQuinn, Bad Tom Smith hired a local doctor to come spend the night so that he may observe Tom’s recent bout of illness. On this night, Doc Rader brought with him a jug of whiskey, and after the whiskey was shared between the three of them, Cat convinced Bad Tom that Rader wanted to kill him. With one shot to the chest, Bad Tom Smith sent the doctor to his grave. This would also be the one kill that would send Bad Tom to the hangman.
