A Matter of Taste

A Matter of Taste

FEBRUARY 16, 2017 MATTHEW HARDIN

We taste a lot of different wines at Lukas.  For the wine team, it’s basically a daily ritual to swirl, sniff, and spit (there’s always a dump bucket involved) dozens of wines.  It is a very important part of our job as wine retailers to know what the wines taste  like that we sell, and to also find new and interesting wines to sell.

As important as it is….. read more here of Matt’s Wine blog here!!!

New Beer: Boulevard, Ommegang, Ballast Point

Now in stock…

BOULEVARD AMERICAN KOLSCH

Using European pilsner malt and malted wheat as a base, American Kolsch is bittered with Magnum hops and features herbal, woody and spicy notes from end of boil additions of Tradition, Saaz and Saphir. Pouring golden in color, the aroma is of bready malt punctuated by a slightly citrusy hop character. With a light to medium mouthfeel, American Kolsch delivers a honey-like malt sweetness that gives way to a crisp clean finish with a touch of lingering herbal hop flavor.

OMMEGANG SIRENS’ SONG

Ancient mariners braved the Aegean, holds laden with figs and raisins. They faced great storms, monstrous sea creatures, and merciless pirates. But all paled compared to the Sirens, whose enchanted songs drifted to sea and drew the sailors to their end. Our dark ale, Sirens’ Song, pays homage to the lost cargos, with figs and raisins added to the brew kettle. The resulting beer is dark, mysterious, and as irresistible as the Sirens’ seductive song. Roasted malt and burnt sugar aromas lead, followed by flavors of dark fruit and notes of dark caramel. The finish is smooth and balanced with subtle bitterness.

BALLAST POINT SEA MONSTER

Our Sea Monster Imperial Stout explores the darkest reaches of the traditional oatmeal stout. This bold, rich brew first lures you in with roasted coffee notes, then grabs hold with hints of bittersweet chocolate and currant. Backed with a perfect hop balance, you’ll soon discover this is one monster of mythic proportions.

BALLAST POINT PIPER DOWN

Our Piper Down Scottish Ale hits all the right notes for the Ballast Point Bagpipe Corps that inspired it. We created this very low hopped, malty ale for the band to enjoy using UK Maris Otter malt, roasted barley, UK hops and low fermentation temperatures. Then we let the brew’s sweet complexity build over a three-hour boil. Full of roasted caramel flavor, it’s a pub classic with Ballast Point personality.

Goodwood Beer From Louisville, KY

Goodwood Brewing Company is now available!

BOURBON BARREL ALE
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. It finishes strong and dry with notes of vanilla and bourbon-soaked oak. 6.0 ABV/27 IBU

LOUISVILLE LAGER
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. This results in a light-bodied, perfectly balanced lager with a sweet finish delivered by those Kentucky grains. 4.2 ABV/35 IBU

WALNUT BROWN ALE
You’ll go totally walnuts over this oak-aged, walnut-seasoned brown ale. Made with a brewing style that dates back to 16th-century England and using a blend of six choice malts and two English hops, Goodwood Walnut Brown Ale features notes of caramel and chocolate with a finish that is – you guessed it – pleasingly nutty. 6.0 ABV/23 IBU
