West Sixth Brewing, out of Lexington, Kentucky has started distributing its second beer in the Cincinnati market with the West Sixth Amber ale. West Sixth Brewing opened in April of 2012 initially only distributing their flagship West Sixth IPA. They began distributing the flagship into the Cincinnati/ Northern Kentucky market in January of 2013 and have since added capacity allowing the introduction of West Sixth Amber, their second product to distribute.
West Sixth Amber hits malty, biscuit notes to contrast the hop forward IPA. This Classic American Amber Ale is made up of 7 malts including Victory which defines many American Amber Ales. The Cascade and Palisade hops although present definitely take a back seat and with 5.5% ABV a sessionable smooth drinking beer is delivered.
West Sixth Brewing will continue to strictly can their beer for package sales. West Sixth Amber will be available on store shelves in 6 pack cans and on draft in 1/6 and ½ barrels. West Sixth’s distributor in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area is Stagnaro Distributing.
