GEORGETOWN, KY (Wed 28 Jun 2017) -- Kentucky brewers, Kentucky Proud producers, and Kentucky State University (KSU) will produce craft beers infused with locally grown ingredients that will be released this fall.
In a news conference today in Georgetown, Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles joined representatives of the Kentucky Guild of Brewers, the Kentucky Hop Growers Alliance, and KSU to announce the project. The craft beers will be released October 12-14, 2017,m during Kentucky Proud Beer Week.
"This collaboration will produce agricultural products that add value to the individual ingredients," Commissioner Quarles said. "This is a great example of Kentucky Proud farmers and small businesses helping each other. We were pleased to play a role in bringing this project together."
"This venture will support small family farms and small businesses in new economic activity, as well as bring a unique Kentucky fruit, the pawpaw, and blackberry, the Kentucky state fruit, to consumers in new value-added products," said Dr. Kirk Pomper, director of Land Grant Programs at Kentucky State University.
The Kentucky Proud ingredients and the brewers that will be using them include:
Kentucky State's Fruit and Vegetable Mobile Processing Unit will be used to process the fruit into a form that the brewers can easily use in their craft beers. Processing will be completed at the KSU research farm near Frankfort.
To find the dates and times when the craft beers will be released, watch the Kentucky Guild of Brewers website, kygbrewers.org.
