If you're a fan of great beer and live music, then you won't want to miss the celebration taking place this weekend at Holsopple Brewery in Lyndon, Kentucky. The brewery is marking its 6th anniversary with a weekend full of festivities, including live music from local artists, the release of its annual Big Hand Imperial Stout and variants, and plenty of beer and pizza from the local pizzeria Twin Spires Pizza.
Holsopple Brewing has been a staple in the Lyndon community for the past six years and co-owner and head brewer Sam Gambill is thrilled to celebrate the occasion with the community. "We're honored to have been Lyndon's neighborhood brewery for the last six years," Gambill said. "We're inviting the community to join us this weekend to celebrate everything we've done together while also looking forward to the next six years."
The celebration will kick off on Thursday, February 16th with on-draft tastings of previous years' Big Hand Imperial Stout, Holsopple's annual bourbon barrel-aged birthday release, from 2021, 2022, and 2023. On Friday, February 17th, the Americana Trio, The Feral Mountain Men, will take the stage from 7-10 PM, and attendees can sample featured variants of the Big Hand Imperial Stout, including Big Hand Peanut Butter, Big Hand Toasted Coconut, and Big Hand Chocolate Covered Cherry. The celebration will continue on Saturday, February 18th, with live music from Andrew Lee from 2:30-5:30 PM and The Misty Mountain String Band from 7-10 PM.
