Lock, Stock & Smoking Barrels at Copper & Kings
Lock, Stock & Smoking Barrels is Oct. 30 in Louisville, KY at Copper and Kings American Brandy Co. Copper & Kings owners Joe and Lesley Heron asked five renowned craft brewers, including Sierra Nevada, Three Floyds, Oskar Blues, Dogfish Head and Crispin Cider(also founded by Joe), to join 11 local and regional breweries, including Against the Grain. Joe challenged each to think outside the normal barrel-aged box and age one-of-a-kind craft beers in Copper & Kings American brandy barrels to serve at the event. The breweries will be aging their unique beers for nine months for maximum brandy finish and polish.
The festival of barrel-aged beer, cider, brandy, coffee and smoking hot food and music will take place from 6 to 10 p.m. at 1121 E. Washington St. in Louisville.
*Entry also available for guests who do not wish to participate in the exclusive beer and brandy sampling: $10. This event is 21 and over.
A portion of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Beargrass Creek Alliance and promote their rain barrel storm water mitigation initiatives.
