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.



Explore Lexington’s booming craft beer scene on The Brewgrass Trail! You can pick up a paper passport at any of the breweries on the Brewgrass Trail or at our Visitors Center.

The rules for the physical passport are as follows:

  • After visiting 6 breweries, send us your passport (via mail, drop off at our Visitors Center, or leave it at a participating brewery) and you will receive a commemorative tshirt!
  • We will send your passport back and you can complete the trail, send back to us again, to receive a 2nd gift of your choice: a trucker hat, a beanie, or a pair of pint glasses


At VisitLEX we promote and support alcohol responsibility. Enjoy your time at each establishment, but please sip in moderation and always have a designated driver for your journey.
