Anyone that has ever been to an equestrian competition knows that many of the jumps are decorated with sponsors' logos. How many sponsors can say they have a jump that includes their product. Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, the Official Beer of the 2010 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games can.
This Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale jump is located on the Cross-Country Jumping course which will see action Saturday in the second phase of Three-Day Eventing.
Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale starts out as Kentucky Ale. It is then aged for up to 6 weeks in freshly-drained oak barrels from some of Kentucky's world-renowned distilleries. The beer acquires a distinct yet mild bourbon flavor during aging. Hopefully the competitors won't be too distracted by this jump.
