Brewgrass Trail

The craft beer movement in Lexington and the Bluegrass Region is alive and well! True: we are known as the birthplace of bourbon. But we are home to master brewers as well as master distillers! Craft breweries are now scattered across Kentucky, and more and more thirsty travelers are seeking out small craft brewers and locally-made beers in addition to sampling our classic bourbons.  Watch a LexTreks video about the Brewgrass Trail.

The Brewgrass Trail is dedicated to showcasing the craft brewers establishing themselves in the Bluegrass. Here are the breweries you'll want to consider visiting, as well as some great Hop Spots where you are sure to find a great selection of local brews, and an energetic and friendly atmosphere.

New!  Get your Brewgrass Trail Passport!  Have it stamped at each brewery you visit, and you could end up with a one-of-a-kind Brewgrass Trail tshirt for your efforts.  Pick up a passport at any local brewery or at our Visitors Center downtown. Let Daniel Boone tell you about the new passport program.

Want to know what events are going on at the breweries including tastings, special offerings, new beers and food trucks? Go to lexbeerscene.com.  

You can also stay up-to-date with Brewgrass Trail's facebook page and twitter account.
