In their recent state-by-state survey of craft brews, focusing on lagers, Food & Wine magazine determined that  Goodwood Brewing Co.’s Louisville Lager deserves the crown for Kentucky beers.

The Food & Wine story considers craft brewing’s initial focus on ales, and now that breweries have mastered that style, the more difficult to brew, more temperature-sensitive lagers are getting notice.

Goodwood makes its Louisville Lager with grains grown all in Kentucky, and is aged on white ash. Ash is the traditional wood for baseball bats too.
