Good News From Goodwood

Glad I stopped by Cork & Tap last evening for the tap takeover by Goodwood Brewing from Louisville, KY, where brewery rep Nathan (Nate) Grabowski poured samples of their unique brews. Every beer brewed touches wood in some form, usually with barrel aging but some with wood chip infusions. Combined with the limestone water that has made Louisville Bourbon-Central, these beers were all low abv (6% range) and very tasty, with a complexity that the wood aging brings. Available were the Lousiville Lager, brewed with white ash (which, as you know, is what Louisville Slugger baseball bats are made of), a bourbon barrel aged ale with plenty of flavor but not so heavy on the bourbon notes; especially tasty was their Saison aged in red wine barrels. 

These brews will start showing up in retail outlets soon and of course on tap as their distribution grows. Local distributor rep Whitney Ellis from Breakthru Beverage was on hand to assist Nate in pouring and describing the beers.

I welcome these distinctive beers to our neighborhood.
