Alltech made a splash in the beverage industry with the introduction of Kentucky Ale® in 2000. Today Alltech’s Lexington Brewing and Distilling Co. is the producer of award-winning beer and spirits and has grown to become one of the few joint brewing and distilling operations – or “brewstilleries” – in the world. Today, its Kentucky Ale family of brews –Kentucky Ale®, Kentucky Kölsch™, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale®, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout™, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Seasonal Series, and Kentucky IPA™– has collected numerous medals at events. In 2012, the company became part of the world-renowned Kentucky Bourbon Trail® with the opening of its Town Branch Distillery, which crafts Town Branch® Bourbon, Town Branch Rye whiskey, Pearse Lyons Reserve® malt whiskey, and Bluegrass Sundown® bourbon-infused coffee liqueur.
