Kentucky Proud Beer Festival Coming to Our Parking Lot on Saturday

Every October several breweries in Kentucky create a beer using Kentucky Proud ingredients. This year, the “Kentucky Proud Beer Series” is taking it a step further with a beer festival.

The Kentucky Proud Beer Festival will be held in our parking lot Saturday, October 19th from 12:00pm – 6:00pm. 

“We are thrilled to not only have a beer festival in our parking lot, but one that highlights Kentucky breweries,” chief financial officer of Wooden Cask Brewing Karen Schiltz said. “In this part of the state, many people don’t know about all of the amazing breweries Kentucky has to offer.”

The Kentucky Proud Beer Series is a collaborative effort with the Kentucky Guild of Brewers and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture. The KDA worked with the Guild and the breweries to help match them with Kentucky Proud products to create their special release beers.

“Every October, Kentucky’s craft brewers use Kentucky Proud products to brew one-of-a-kind beers to showcase their creativity and honor the Commonwealth’s producers,” Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles said in a press conference in late August. “We are pleased to collaborate with the Kentucky Guild of Brewers on what has become a staple of Kentucky’s fall calendar.”

“We are thrilled to partner again with the Kentucky Department of Agriculture to develop over 20 beers that highlight the wonderful products that Kentucky’s farms have to offer,” executive director of the Kentucky Guild of Brewers Derek Selznick said.

Our Kentucky Proud beer is a Blackberry Oatmeal Stout with blackberries from Boone County. We’ve already tasted it, and we think you’re really going to love it.
