Kentucky Guild of Brewers to host beer festival June 22 at Louisville Waterfront Park’s Festival Plaza


The Kentucky Guild of Brewers (KGB) will host its third annual beer festival, the Kentucky Craft Bash, on June 22 at Louisville Waterfront Park’s Festival Plaza.

The KGB brewfest will be the state’s largest beer festival, featuring beers produced within the Commonwealth by Kentucky Craft Brewers. More than 40 Kentucky breweries highlighting more than 100 varieties of beer will be available. Brewers from across Kentucky will also 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 on June 22.

“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.”

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.
