Close Call Kolsch - Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.

A Beer Camp #140 collaboration beer between the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company and The Forecastle Foundation, Close Call Kolsch is a slightly hoppy but highly-sessionable Kolsch crafted from German Pilsner Malt and Hefeweizen Yeast, coupled with Amarillo and Nelson hops from Washington and New Zealand. The name “Close Call” was given after Forecastle Captain JK McKnight accidentally poured two barrels of hops into the kettle too soon, resulting in a slightly more hoppy varietal. Although the current batch features the corrected recipe, the experience inspired Beer Campers to give it the title “Close Call Kolsch.” ABV 4.7%. A portion of each "Close Call Kolsch" sold is donated to The Forecastle Foundation!


Bourbon Cares Program - KY Bourbon Trail

Each year we team up with four local distilleries to come up with some exclusive single-barrel and private selections. Bottles of these specialty bourbons are available for purchase from our wonderful partner Liquor Barn. They're also available to taste each year inside the Bourbon Lodge at the Forecastle Festival

2017 brands included Woodford Reserve, Four Roses, Old Forester, and Wild Turkey. 

A portion of the proceeds from these limited bourbon releases goes directly back to our mission to protect and connect the world's natural awesome!
