Craft Brewing in Central Kentucky

It’s no secret that Kentucky is home to some of the finest bourbons around, but it’s not the only thing Kentucky specializes in. The men and women of the Brewgrass Trail have applied their diverse knowledge and passion to brew quality beers, ciders, and sake. Trust us, this local craft culture is worth checking out—you might even earn some free merch along the way!

You can also explore the Brewgrass Trail via a few different tour options around town: Big Blue Pedaler, On Tap Tours, Steele Dragon Brewery Tours, and Stone Fences Tours.


Now your furry friends can get in on Brewgrass Trail perks with the Brewgrass Trail Pup Club! After 6 stops on the trail with their human, participating pups will receive a Brewgrass Trail bandana. Simply check the box within the Brewgrass Trail Digital Passport (shown below) and VisitLEX will mail the bandana to you. If your dog needs help knowing where to start, check out Ivy’s Guide to the Brewgrass Trail from a local English Setter. Happy Trails (and Tails) to you!
