Going to Railbird Music Festival in Lexington, KY? We’ve paired six beers from West 6th and six performances you won’t want to miss.
1. Margo Price - FrontRunner Festival Ale
Margo Price can put a hurtin’ on the bottle and drinks whiskey like it’s water, but we suggest you take it easy and enjoy a Frontrunner Festival Ale. Light and refreshing, you’ll be ready for a full day of fun on the festival grounds with a nice light hoppy ale.
2. Band of Horses - IPA
West Sixth IPA is a beer loved by so many across the Commonwealth of Kentucky as an absolute staple, always available and always consistent. For fans of Band of Horses and their Sophomore album, Cease To Begin, the song “No One’s Gonna Love You” has a special meaning remarking on the resilience of a relationship that always is held close to the heart. We love W6 IPA for a beer that is a little bitter and a lot of crushable, one true love.
3. My Morning Jacket - Amber
Whether they’re playing deep cuts from Z or Evil Urges debuting over ten years ago or playing melodic anthems from Waterfalls in 2015, you’re going to want to pause and enjoy the richness of the MMJ sound. A West Sixth Amber perfectly compliments these sounds to enjoy a malt-forward balanced ale accompanied by forward-hop notes. It’s gonna be a great journey, so strap in, get comfortable and ride the wave.
4. Leon Bridges - Pennyrile Pale Ale
The smooth sounds of Leon Bridges transcend traditional feelings as he so eloquently delivers some of the most descript situations of love, humility, and loneliness, all while looking forward to better times. Pennyrile Pale Ale boasts a bold, fruity hop aroma that is loud and bold - just like that of Leon’s voice all while being fulfilling and delicious enough to keep listening.
5. Khruangbin - Meadoweisse
Khruangbin, a band that's known for serving up a rich, genre-blurring combination of Thai funk, bass-stepped Tarantino soundtracks, and surf-rock cool, will adorn the Elkhorn stage on Saturday. The atmospheric and eccentric group, who has been on countless global tours and graced nearly every major festival stage in the world - likewise the Berliner Weisse has been adopted by countries worldwide. Meadoweisse is a crisp and refreshing German ale that is light in body and very tart with flavors reminiscent of sourdough bread.
6. Dave Matthews Band - Cerveza
Where are you going? Railbird’s not over yet. We have still have so much to say about West Sixth Cerveza and Dave Matthews Band. This quenching 4.6% Mexican Lager will be the perfect nightcap for a fantastic two-day festival while we listen to Dave and friends. Tune out and get away from the world. Enter into the space between and feel the euphoric energy of Railbird crash into you.
