Had a couple pints at Apocalypse Brew Works over the weekend. Leah Dienes just keeps on brewing up tasty Louisville beer.
ABW Hop Project: Cluster (4.6% ABV, 42 IBU) is Apocalypse’s APA of the moment. It’s another classic summer ale that has just enough bitterness to let you know it’s there, but is smooth-bodied and sessionable. This one pours a cloudy, dark orange – it was almost red. Of course, I drank it from a plastic cup in the not-too-well-lit Apocalypse tap room, so that probably influenced my vision. I liked it so much that I had two of them.
Speaking of APAs, while I haven’t had the opportunity to try it yet, Falls City announced the release of 502 APA. If you’ve read this blog before, you know I’m an APA guy, and this one sounds pretty nice.
Here’s the description from Falls City: “This American Pale Ale is the next beer in our single-hop APA series. We used only Amarillo hops in this beer giving it strong citrusy characteristics with hints of orange peel and grapefruit. A mild, toasty malt backbone helps to balance out the bitterness.”

Grammy-award winning Kenny Rogers continues his brilliant creativity with his new album You Can’t Make Old Friendsset for release on October 8th. Being the first country album since Water & Bridges in 2006 he stretches his artistry into new musical territory. He brings these fresh new tracks with his classic sounds by collaborating genres to tell his great stories through rock and roll, soul, gospel, southern rock, zydeco, and sounds of the Southwest. Rogers even ads those old friends to the record like Dolly Parton, collaborating a brand new duet.
Kenny Rogers continues to bring year 2013 with a bang, after the announcement of his induction into theCountry Music Hall of Fame this fall. Rogers also performed on the main stage at this year’s Glastonbury Festival to a colossal audience on the grounds and around the UK as it was televised on BBC.
