‘Banana Stand’ Coming Friday to Apocalypse Brew Works

apocalypse brews - louisville beer blogApocalypse Brew Works announced via social media that it will tap a new brew on Friday, May 23. It’s a collaboration with My Old Kentucky Homebrew, called “Banana Stand.”

Obviously, we at Louisville Beer Blog are happy it isn’t called “Banana Hammock.” But what’s the skinny on this new interestingly-titled beer?

Per co-owner and brewmaster Leah Dienes, Banana Stand is “a German-style Hefeweizen with cocoa nibs … [which draws] Banana flavor (from the yeast) and a little toastiness from the malts, with a hint of chocolate.”

Sounds like a fine way to start the Memorial Day weekend. Apocalypse opens Friday at 5 p.m.
