Top 5 Best Beers at Lakeville Brewing Company

Lakeville Brewing Company is a both a craft brewery and a restaurant located in downtown Lakeville, Minnesota . They are located right across the parking lot from Angry Inch Brewing . They offer many beers on tap that were brewed right there on-site. Their beer menu has many staples that never change, and there are usually a couple new experimental batches available on rotation. Lakeville Brewing Company has a sister brewery in Inver Grove Heights, MN called Inver Grover Brewing Company, and sometimes they will have beers available in Lakeville that were brewed in Inver Grove's facilities. You can view their current beer selection on the Untappd page for the brewery .  If you are already at the brewery, either in their taproom or their backyard patio area (which is dog-friendly) , you can check out what is available on tap on their beer list chalkboards. Lakeville Brewery is one of my favorite area craft breweries and I have been there enough to have tried all of their beers. The

Bardstown Bourbon Company Review | Bardstown, KY

 Kentucky certainly has a lot of bourbon distilleries. Lots of the big names in American whiskey that you would recognize from your local liquor store shelves are distilled in Kentucky. In fact, that is what drew me and my wife to Kentucky for vacation in the first place. We traveled to Kentucky for 5 days specifically to go to the distilleries on the famous Kentucky Bourbon Trail. In addition to the big, nationally recognizable names in bourbon that you surely will find in Kentucky, there are also smaller craft operations. Bardstown Bourbon Company falls into that category. It is by no means a small operation. It had a campus and equipment big enough to impress anyone. Sure, it wasn't as big as Buffalo Trace or Maker's Mark, but it still had a "factory" size to it. Not being from the area (and not being over-the-top obsessed with liquor), we had never heard of Bardstown Bourbon Company before. We actually had BBC recommended to us by a local tour guide. We were han

Scout and Scholar Brewing Co. Review | Bardstown, KY

 My wife and I traveled to Kentucky for the Kentucky Bourbon Trail . We spent the majority portion of each of our days on vacation in Kentucky driving to different bourbon and whiskey distilleries to take tours, view the grounds, and taste the bourbon.  That was a ton of fun and we don't regret a moment of it, but we reached a point where we needed a break from the taste of liquor. We also love breweries , and beer just sounded more refreshing at that time. While we were hanging out at Limestone Branch Distillery in Lebanon, KY, we met a tour guide named John who drives for a tour company called Mint Julep Tours . We had seen their Mint Julep tour buses all over as we traveled through the area in Kentucky. We figured that these tour guides had probably seen all of the best parts of the area and would be able to give a very good recommendation . We started chatting with John about the area and other things to do while we were there. John was really friendly and very knowledgeable. H
