GRAMMY Nominated Band Launches (Another) Craft Beer
Kentucky Mud recognizes the GRAMMY-nominated band’s historical roots
ATLANTA, Ga. – GRAMMY-nominated Nappy Roots and Arches Brewery are holding a one-day craft beer event on Saturday, Feb. 9 from 1-9pm, to celebrate the limited-edition beer launch of Kentucky Mud. The stout celebrates the band’s historical roots, being found in Kentucky and settled in Atlanta. The band will be on-hand to meet fans at Arches Brewery (3361 Dogwood Dr., Hapeville) for a fun day of playing corn hole, staying warm by the fire pits, and enjoying delicious food.
Kentucky Mud is a creatively brewed Nitro Chocolate Milk Stout with an ABV of 6.6%. Its foundation is rich and chocolaty, accompanied by sweet nutty flavors. The light roasted notes are layered with the addition of lactose, which brings a frothy creaminess. A generous dose of cocoa nibs and bourbon soaked vanilla beans put the final touch on this adventurous style.
“We’re celebrating our partnership with Nappy Roots by hosting an event with the band at our facility,” said Ashley Henry, Arches Brewery tasting room manager. “Kentucky Mud will only be available at Arches Brewing and once its gone, it’s gone. Come early and enjoy the celebration!”
The band began experimenting with their home brewery, Atlantucky, which fermented their passion for micro brewing. During the past few years, they have mass-produced several beers.
In addition, the group is in the initial stages of developing a reality show that will follow the band as they visit craft breweries in markets they perform.
The Nappy Roots were nominated for two American Music Awards (AMA) in 2003: Favorite Band, Duo or Group – Hip-Hop/R&B and Favorite New Artist – Hip-Hop/R&B. That same year, they were also nominated for Best New Artist at the Soul Train Award. In 2011, Southern Entertainment Awards nominated their album The Pursuit of Happiness for Album of the Year. The band’s most recent album, Another 40 Akerz, was released in 2017.
