Oprah Winfrey loves ale? Seems she likes Alltech's Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, which made the list of "50 things to make you say wow" in the August issue of O, The Oprah Magazine. It's No. 49.

According to the magazine, it's "the sublime brew that turned the wine-swilling O staff into beer drinkers."

"Warm, woodsy, deep and dark, this pint was redolent of the oak barrels in which it was aged," the magazine said.

The Lexington-made brew is available in only 15 states. But not New York yet. Winfrey's staffers had to order it online to taste it, apparently.
