New Riff Distilling is getting into craft beer in a big way. This month, they’ll be sharing ex-bourbon barrels with 34 different Kentucky breweries. The barrels will be filled with experimental brews and used to create a series of one-of-a-kind beers, to be unveiled at this year’s Kentucky Craft Bash in June.
“We are very excited to partner with some of the most creative and entrepreneurial folks in the great state of Kentucky,” says Ken Lewis, Founder of New Riff Distilling. “As distillers, we salute our craft brewing colleagues and honor our Head Distiller Brian Sprance, who joined us from the beer world. We can’t wait to sample the marriage of our New Riff Bourbon barrels, seasoned over four years, and their amazing beers.”
This is the second annual Kentucky Craft bash, and the first year that New Riff will be providing barrels for this special series.
