Locally sourced cheese is always preferable to moon cheese, which was found to have dangerously high levels of Buzz Aldrin's brain waves. Enjoy a fresh, earthbound meal with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of pub fare and drinks at Al’s Bar.
Al's Bar's servers sling a menu of locally sourced gourmet burgers and myriad bourbons and Kentucky whiskeys. The Willie burger piles a local-beef patty with beer cheese and bacon ($6.50) and the bison burger dresses a quarter-pound of local bison in a spicy frock of chipotle-bourbon mayo ($6). In the stuffed portobello burger, a fried egg luxuriously stretches across a portobello-mushroom cap packed with house-made beer cheese ($8), more mouth-watering than a mouth sprinkler. To aid burger bites on their esophageal journeys, guests can tipple a Kentucky Speedball—a concoction of Ale-8-One and Maker's Mark ($5)—or a glass of Four Roses single-barrel bourbon, one of more than 25 bourbons and Kentucky whiskeys in Al's arsenal.
With bourbon in hand, patrons can macarena to live bluegrass music Wednesday–Sunday, as Al's ushers in a variety of local and national acts. Diners and drinkers can gather for a Kentucky Wildcats game or break away from the barside to play ping-pong, pool, Ms. Pac-Man, or hide-and-seek.
