Gallant Fox Brewing: Kentucky Beer, Bourbon, and Derby Days

| | ,

When you hear Kentucky, you probably think bourbon, but what you really should be thinking about is Kentucky beer…and bourbon. Oh, and you definitely can’t forget the Kentucky Derby. And that, my dear beer loving friend, is what Gallant Fox Brewing Company in Louisville, Kentucky, is all about. Kentucky Beer, Kentucky Bourbon, and the Kentucky Derby.

Welcome to the fourth episode in our series of podcasts where we have partnered up with Malteurop Malting Company (MMC) to highlight some phenomenal craft breweries for American Craft Beer Week, May 16-22.

Meet Roger Huff from Gallant Fox Brewing Co

Roger Huff and his business partner, Patrick Workman came together over some serious homebrewing. Combining that with their love of Kentucky, Gallant Fox Brewing Co became a reality in 2020.

But they didn’t want to just sell beer. They wanted to give their visitors a true Kentucky experience. And with Roger’s love of Kentucky bourbon and his extensive collection of many bottles, it was quite easy to add a bourbon bar to accompany the brewery. Keeping with the Kentucky proud theme, the name was a given. Not sure how that fits into Kentucky? You’ll have to listen to find out more. And not only do we talk about Gallant Fox, and while we do get a little deep into the woods about distribution and expansion, we have some fun with the Kentucky Derby and definitely the bourbon.

Kentucky Beer and Bourbon

When in Rome, so the saying goes. So, when in Kentucky we have to talk a bit about the bourbon, and Roger even gives out some tips on what bourbons to buy. Yes, his business is all about brewing beer, and at Gallant Fox, they brew some some damn good ones, but who doesn’t love a good bourbon, just as much? Some even more. And think about this – Kentucky bourbon means barrels. Kentucky barrels translate beautifully into Kentucky beer. Roger’s passion for what he does is evidenced through a smile you can hear and feel. It’s palpable. Grab your favorite beer (or bourbon) and settle in for some good Kentucky conversation.

Bourbon outside of Kentucky?

Yes, Kentucky is known for its bourbon, but not all bourbon is made in Kentucky. In fact some damn good bourbon is made in Tennessee.

Shout Outs:

Roger, your passion for Kentucky shines through in everything you say and do. Your love for all the great things in life, including beer, bourbon, family, and community, to name just a few, is evidenced through your infectious smile on your face and joy in your voice. It was such a pleasure chatting with you and hanging out and we can’t wait for you to be one of our first stops on our Kentucky beer and bourbon tour.

To Rick Barney and Gretchen Jones from Malteurop Malting Company for putting this together. It may have been meant to highlight Gallant Fox Brewing Company for American Craft Beer Week, and that it did, but it also shined the spotlight on you two and the community within MMC.
