The Kentucky Department of Agriculture worked with the Guild to match craft brewers with Kentucky Proud producers to created the limited-release beers.

“Every October, Kentucky’s craft brewers use locally grown products to brew one-of-a-kind beers to showcase their creativity and honor the Commonwealth’s producers,” said Dr. Ryan Quarles, agriculture commissioner. “We are pleased to collaborate with the Kentucky Guild of Brewers once again on what has become a staple of Kentucky’s fall calendar.”

Everything from lavender extract, honey, molasses, carrots, apples, blueberries and pumpkin will be infused into the beers for the 5th annual series.

“This is my favorite beer series that we do every year,” said Derek Selznick, executive director of the Kentucky Guild of Brewers. “This series is a chance for our brewers to get together with our farmers to put their creative minds together to make beers that truly capture the essence of Kentucky. From grains and hops to every berry under the sun, these beers are totally unique and Kentucky Proud.”

Also, for the first time in series history, many of the breweries are using Kentucky malt made from locally grown grains in 2020, produced by South Fork Malthouse out of Cynthiana.
