Brewery Description:

Welcome to our little microbrewery in the heart of downtown Lexington. People often ask us why a global company that’s in the business of science also owns a brewery. Well, to make a long story short, my forefathers in Ireland had their hand in the brewing business and crafting beer casks when barrels were made out of wood. Today, my own family is in the business of making yeast that happens to also go into the making of beer. So, it was a natural for us to revive the brewery that has been in Lexington since 1794. Welcome and enjoy. –

Flagship Beers:
Kentucky Ale
Kentucky Light
Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale
