You’re not going to believe this, but on my way to Beer Engine in Danville, Kentucky a local police officer pulled me over to inform me that my tail lights were not on. I was driving a rental car and apparently hadn’t figured out which headlight mode to use. I had also just missed a turn and thought he was pulling me over because I was driving a bit strangely. I was pleasantly surprised when all he was doing was helping me. But, the story gets better. He asked me where I was headed. I sheepishly said I was going to the Beer Engine microbrewery and basically he insisted on escorting me the rest of the way there. Seriously. I got a police escort TO a microbrewery. That’s a first.
The bartender was really cool and he gave me the low-down on their house beers. I enjoyed a Freedom Ranger American Pale Ale (APA) which was a nice switch-up to the IPA’s I normally order and I also had a taste of the His Dark Materials Stout which was also very nice. I recommend both. And, forunately, I didn’t need a police escort afterward.:)
