Alltech - Lexington Brewing & Distilling Company


United States


Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. is a passion for Dr. Pearse Lyons. Lyons, who spent his early years as an intern at both the Guinness and Harp Lager Breweries, went on to become the first Irishman to achieve a formal degree in Brewing and Distilling from the British School of Malting and Brewing, a school with over 100 years of history. Five generations of the Lyons family worked as coopers, supplying barrels to distilleries in Ireland for a quarter of a century. Lyons’ history and experience converged serendipitously in Kentucky. Lyons had one strategy: make the very best beers. From that goal came Kentucky Ale® and Kentucky Kölsch®. Capitalizing on Kentucky’s position as producer of 95% of the world’s bourbon, Kentucky Ale® was married with one of the state’s most unique assets: the bourbon barrel. Within hours of a mature Kentucky bourbon leaving the barrel, Kentucky Ale® takes up a six-week residence in the used cask, creating a distinctive taste, color, and fragrance. Tried before, but never duplicated, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale® is the flagship of Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co., winning numerous awards, including medals at the Great American Beer Festival. Gaining popularity nationwide, this unique beer is now available in 30 states and six countries. In 2011, Lyons launched Town Branch® Bourbon, named after the waterway on which Lexington is founded. Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. invites you to join us in downtown Lexington to experience our story for yourself and enjoy our full range of beverages including the Kentucky Family
