Breweries and Wineries
Sip and savor craft beer and local wine
In a state better known for bourbon, beer and wine tours are a popular way to taste Kentucky’s other great drinks. Craft breweries in Louisville and Lexington continue to draw national acclaim. Kentucky is also the home to nearly 70 local wineries.
Microbreweries around the state offer beer tours exploring the production, sensory elements and history of brewing in Kentucky. Whether the best beer for you is a bock or an IPA, breweries can accommodate your taste.
The first commercial vineyard in the United States was in Kentucky, a leading wine producer until Prohibition. Today’s wine industry capitalizes on the state’s rich agricultural heritage paired with the latest winemaking technique.
