A pair of breweries in Lexington, Ky., are collaborating to brew a new beer in honor of the move of former Chesapeake & Ohio steam locomotive 2716, and the new brew will help contribute to restoration project for the locomotive.

Kentucky Steam Heritage Corp. says that Ethereal Brewing and Mirror Twin Brewing, both of Lexington, have agreed to collaborate on the “Back On Track Steam Beer” to honor 2716’s move from the Kentucky Railway Museum in New Haven to its new home at the Kentucky Steam Heritage Center at the former CSX Transportation Ravenna Yard in Irvine, Ky. The new beer will debut on Saturday, July 27 — the second day of 2716’s three-day move — when 2716 arrives in Lexington on its trip across Central Kentucky to its new home. The engine’s display and the beer’s debut will be part of an event in Lexington’s Brewery District which will also include a fire truck display and other events.

More information is available online.
