An assertive traditional American Pale Ale that has a few non-traditional, local ingredients like Blue Oven Farm’s toasted wheat. The clean citrus notes of our Amarillo hops come through to balance the supporting toasted wheat backbone.
Founded in 1846, this quaint Kentucky town on the Ohio River takes its name from landowner Israel Ludlow, whose father of the same name helped found Cincinnati. Prior to the town’s platting, the land was awarded to Revolutionary War hero General Thomas Sanford, traded to real estate developer Thomas D. Carneal and sold to showman William Bullock, a guy madcap enough to inspire one of our beers. During the Gilded Age and Progressive Era, the city grew notably as a rail hub and gained notoriety with the Lagoon Amusement Park. Ludlow’s population boomed with new construction in the 1920s and declined when folks moved to the burbs after World War II. In 1946 the city began sponsoring its annual Memorial Day parade for veterans, and the Ludlow Theatre opened its doors. Today Ludlow—connected to the river, railroads, patriotism and entertainment—has seen a revival with new residents, businesses, artists and, the obvious, a circus brewery. Come visit and stay for a beer.
