Beer Info

Upstate Common Sense Ale Beer
  • Kentucky Common · 5.3% ABV

    This beer is a revival of a beer style that prior to prohibition was one of the most popular beers in America: Kentucky Common ale. It has a dark color with a decent hint of hops (22 IBUs), but with a light, easy drinking and flavorful taste. Many people today mistakenly think that the style is supposed to have a sour taste; but our research led us to the over 100 year old “American Handy Book of the Brewing, Malting & Auxiliary Trades” (see page 818) which makes no mention of it having a sour quality or using a sour mash to brew it. Instead it was just a dark, refreshing, and easy drinking brew that the working class people of the time loved to drink fresh after a 16 hour day in the mills. It is a great resurrected dark yet light beer for all modern beer lovers!
