BELLEVUE, Ky. -- Northern Kentucky's Ei8ht Ball Brewing is turning two
and its got a pair of special release beers for fans to enjoy.
The brewery will release a limited run of its award-winning bourbon
barrel-aged Reintarnation Golden Ale and its new Ryeld, a rye
whiskey barrel-aged English Mile Ale.
The release will start at 5 p.m. Friday in the taproom and only 100
bottles of each will be available.
Reintarnation notched a bronze medal victory at the 2014 Great
American Beer Festival (GABF) competition and a gold medal at the 2014
Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beer.

The brewers make Reintarnation by aging Ei8ht Balls Tarnished Golden
Ale in New Riff Distilling nine-year-old O.K.I. Straight Bourbon
When New Riff dumps the whiskey barrels ahead of bottling, they are
filled with beer the same day.
Reintarnation helped pave the way for Ryeld as Head Brewer Mitch
Dougherty decided to pair his spring seasonal Queen with the
spiciness of a rye barrel.
Dougherty said via a release, I believe most beer drinkers expect
barrel aged beers to be huge, rich and high in alcohol. The formula is
simple with these two products; make sure we can all enjoy more than
one glass at a time. You will find these beers have the flavors and
aromas one would expect from a barrel-aged beer but, they have an
un-cloying finish which will keep your taste buds intrigued and coming
back for that second glass.
The bottles will be limited to two per person and sell for $12.99.
They are available on a first come, first serve basis. The release
starts at 5 p.m. Friday.
