On Saturday, June 22, at Louisville Waterfront Park’s Festival Plaza, the Kentucky Guild of Brewers will host its third annual beer festival, the Kentucky Craft Bash. We’re excited to invite you to this fest for brewers and beer lovers alike to benefit Kentucky craft beer. The KGB brewfest will be the state’s largest beer festival featuring beers produced within the Commonwealth by Kentucky Craft Brewers. We will host over 40 Kentucky breweries highlighting more than 100 varieties of beer. Not only will you enjoy the Kentucky brews you love, you will also try exclusive, experimental beers hard to find outside the fest, as well as brews that rarely make it out of the brewery’s taproom.
40 brewers from Across Kentucky to Unveil Experimental Beers at the Kentucky Craft Bash
The brewers, who hail from cities and towns that include Louisville, Lexington, Frankfort and New Riff Distilling’s hometown of Newport, picked up their allotted barrels at a special ceremony at the distillery. They will share their experimental barrel-aged beers at the third annual Kentucky Craft Bash event in Louisville on June 22, 2019, at Festival Plaza at Waterfront Park in downtown Louisville. All funds proceeds go to support the Craft Beer Industry in Kentucky and their charity partner Cure CF. Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased at www.kycraftbash.com.
“I am so excited to show off the best of Kentucky beer and talk to the actual people that brew the beer and learn about the love and care that goes into the production of these beers,” said Derek Selznick, Executive Director of the Kentucky Guild of Brewers. “We want folks to sip and savor these delicious beers and ciders, while supporting the craft brewers of Kentucky.”
“And don’t worry if beer isn’t your thing, we will also have several ciders and will also sample New Riff’s bourbon, so you can compare the barrel aged beers to the actual bourbon.”
