LEXINGTON, Kentucky– Country Boy Brewing and West Sixth Brewing continued their partnership during Lexington Craft Beer Week to bring you Country Western Vol. 10, Country Western in space. The two breweries that opened in 2012 appreciate good locally made beers and want to create a community from independent craft beer.
Country Western in Space is a double New England style IPA brewed with Galaxy, Strata and Citra hops. With 8.5% alcohol by volume, this is the perfect beer to share with friends and experience what these space-inspired hop varieties can bring to a double dry hopped IPA. The brew will be available at all Country Boy and West Sixth taprooms on tap and in four-pack cans from Wednesday, May 4.
This year’s edition of Country Western was brewed at Country Boy Brewing with a special visit from West Sixth co-founder Robin Sither to lead the brewing process. In addition to Robin, the brewing team consisted of West Sixth Head Brewer, Andy Smith, Country Boy Brewer, Ben Rubin and Country Boy co-owner Evan Coppage.
“Country Western is always a fun way to partner with our friends at Country Boy Brewing to celebrate Lexington Craft Beer Week. It’s hard to believe this is the tenth year of this collaboration, and we can’t wait to share this year’s with everyone! said Ben Self, co-founder of West Sixth Brewing
“We’ve been great friends with the folks at West Sixth since before our breweries opened and celebrating 10 years of this collaborative beer is a milestone we’ll never forget,” said Country Boy co-owner Daniel Harrison.
In addition to the brewery taprooms, Country Western in Space will be available at several events throughout Lexington Craft Beer Week, including Shamrock Bar & Grille Patchen on Monday May 9 and The Burl Arcade on Friday May 13.
