Nashville, TN & Louisville, KY — Firmly rooted in the burgeoning Nashville neighborhood of Germantown, Bearded Iris Brewing has partnered with Louisville’s Dauntless Distributing to offer their dynamic lineup to Kentucky on an extremely limited basis beginning Friday, March 31st in nearby Bowling Green, KY.

Opening in February 2016, Bearded Iris has gained notoriety in recent months for NE-inspired IPAs like the juicy, hazy Homestyle and Simcoe-slathered Scatterbrain. The variety cultivated in the brewery by founders Kavon Togrye and Paul Vaughn extends much further, though. From Old Bull, an unfiltered Bohemian pilsner crafted in honor of classic kellerbier, to French oak foudres and Bluegrass bourbon barrels designated for both bold and funky beers.

The aforementioned Homestyle will be the initial brand available within Dauntless’ footprint in limited amounts of cans and kegs, with launch parties on March 31st and April 1st featuring such dank delights as Double Scatterbrain, Tunnel Vision, and Attention Please! on draught.

At Bearded Iris Brewing, we believe you deserve a different kind of beer. A beer that’s bold in its simplicity, approachable in its elegance, unexpected in its nuance, and most of all, worthy of several pints.

We respect the union of art & science that advances industry, humanity, and the craft of brewing. So we meld Old World fermentation techniques with innovation and imagination to bring you a beer that’s as skillfully designed and delightfully unique as the flower for which it’s named.

Bearded Iris proudly hails from Nashville, a city where the spirit of ingenuity is electric, and we plan to rally our city behind us in demanding beer that distinguishes itself.

Don’t settle for ordinary. Don’t chase novelty. Let’s cultivate variety.

Dauntless Distributing came into existence in 2011 with an unbending drive to humanize the commodity of handcrafted beer. This predilection to play proxy for the myriad artisans and their inspired works from around the globe has paved Dauntless’ path. Our team is dedicated to providing the highest quality of service and curation throughout the state of Kentucky. Come share in our singular passion.
