Sometimes, to me anyway, the marathon seems like controlled disaster waiting to happen - especially for a chicken like me...
Rebecca is shopping and I am thirsty...
One good thing I have discovered during these games is the Kentucky Light Ale. Locally brewed and bottled by Alltech® founder and owner Pierce Lyons, this brew is really good. I prefer the light ale. My husband, the true beer devotee in the family, discovered Kentucky Ale several years ago and is particularly fond of the Bourbon Barrel Ale. He's a bourbon drinker and loves the flavor that aging the Bourbon Barrel Ale (hence the name) in old bourbon barrels imparts to the beer. I'm thinking the extra whallop of alcohol this particular beer delivers isn't a turn-off either.
I recall, during one particularly memorable (memorable in a strictly figurative sense as my actual memory of the evening is a little hazy at best) Alltech® Press Dinner during a Rolex Kentucky 3-Day Event. My husband sat next to the Kentucky Ale Master Brewer - received his own personal tour of the brewery, and then tasted the fruits of the Brewer's labors. Tasted, and tasted and tasted... He's been hooked ever since.
