May 3, Cold Spring, KY – Barleycorn’s is excited to announce the launch of their own signature brew in a collaboration with Fifty West Brewing Company. Barleycorn’s Red Lager, created by Fifty West Brew Master, Ryan Hayes, featuring a distinct red color and rich flavor will be exclusively available all Barleycorn’s restaurants.
Joe Heil, Barleycorn’s Owner and Operator, had the idea for a Barleycorn’s unique brew and turned to Dell Hall, director of sales at Fifty West Brewing Company. Hall may be better known by his other claim to fame as the guy who challenged himself to a beer-only Lenten fast. Barleycorn’s Red Lager features a balanced combination of hops and malt with a medium body, with a slightly sweet aroma and a smooth finish. A very drinkable lager.
It was important to Barleycorn’s to continue its tradition of featuring local brews on tap. "It is a perfect fit with what we do every day in showcasing the best beers in the area,” says Heil. “Barleycorn’s is known for our great draft beer selection. We cater to those who love domestic light beer and as well as those who have more adventurous tastes. That’s why we wanted to brew something to bridge the gap between light beer and something more full bodied, something that everyone could enjoy.”
To officially launch the beer, Barleycorn’s will be hosting "Toast & Taste Parties” at each of their locations during the month of May:
·Barleycorn’s Lakeside Park (Five Mile House), May 8 at 4:30 pm
·Barleycorn’s Florence, May 15 at 4:30 pm
·Barleycorn’s Cold Spring, May 22 at 4:30 pm
Join us at one of the Toast & Taste parties for $2 pints of Barleycorn’s Red Lager, happy hour pricing on appetizers and other drinks, and giveaways. Representatives from Fifty West Brewery will be at each location to share their brewing process and provide tastings of Barleycorn’s Red Lager. They will also be serving two other Fifty West brews.
“We look forward to our customers sampling the new brew. We had a few kegs to test the beer and it quickly sold out!” says Heil. "It’s a great complement to our entire menu – Barleycorn’s Red Lager goes perfect with everything from our signature Doc Style Wings to our salads and classic entrees.”
Barleycorn's and Sports Talk for 2019!
I'm fired up to have Barleycorn's involved with Sports Talk throughout 2019!
I will be giving away a Barleycorn's gift card to a Twitter follower EVERY WEEK during the year.
Follow me on Twitter @lancemcalister.
Each week I will select a Tweet from a follower that catches my eye/makes me laugh and give that follower a gift card.
Each winner will have 30 days to pick up the gift card at the station.
When a big Cincinnati sports story develops we will roll out Tweets I Got and give away the gift card like we do for each Bengals game.
