The guys behind Goodwood are three of Louisville’s longest-serving brewing veterans, running production breweries in the city since 2001. Now thrilled to branch off on their own, this splinter group of beer makers has rebooted its brewery around the success of its most renowned product: Bluegrass Brewing Company's Bourbon Barrel Stout (now the Goodwood Bourbon Barrel Stout).
Goodwood Brewing Co.
You’ll go totally walnuts over this oak-aged, walnut-seasoned brown ale.
Goodwood uses casks from some brandy distilling friends to patiently age our Honey Ale – super freaking patiently, actually. Goodwood Brandy Barrel Honey Ale is brewed with locally sourced honey and aged several times longer than our other barreled beers.
Goodwood Louisville Lager is the first and only beer brewed with 100% Kentucky-grown grains. And, in a tip of the cap to our Slugger-making neighbors downtown, white ash – common in baseball bats – is used to enhance brewing.
Goodwood Bourbon Barrel Stout is an homage to Kentucky’s proud distilling legacy – brewed with the same limestone water as its namesake whiskey and patiently seasoned in bourbon barrels. This silky American stout has notes of oak, dark roasted malts and, of course, bourbon.
Goodwood Bourbon Barrel Ale is refined by its time in the cask, not defined by it. The process produces balanced, adjunct-free ale with delicious bourbon notes. This copper-toned beaut is medium-bodied and malt-forward with a hint of sweet caramel.
Goodwood Red Wine Barrel Saison is aged in a variety of wine casks, adding distinct and changing variances to each batch.
If poplar is good enough for the Mona Lisa, we figured it'd make a pretty good canvas for Goodwood Pale Ale.
