Breweries of The Kentucky Wildlands

You’ll find one-of-a-kind breweries offering genuine handcrafted Appalachian brews and spirits, as well as memorable dining experiences in The Kentucky Wildlands. From historic buildings in inviting downtown locales to expansive sites in outlying areas, a wide range of breweries and taprooms, some nationally recognized, are located in a number of mountain towns in the region. 

Raise a glass at the Jarfly Brewing Co. set in the old 1904 Goldenburg family furniture building, or at Tap on Main Brewing with 20 rotating taps and various fine cigar options, both in Somerset. Take a tour and learn about Appalachian legends firsthand at the moonshine and bluegrass music-influenced Dueling Barrels Brewery & Distillery in Pikeville. Savor true Kentucky spirit found in brewing techniques, such as the aged bourbon-barrel process at Sawstone Brewing in Morehead, handed down from generation to generation and used by many craft brewers throughout The Kentucky Wildlands. And the nationally recognized taproom, The Wrigley in Corbin (featured in Time Magazine, Food & Wine, and Forbes) serves up house-curated craft brews and a farm-to-table menu with ingredients sourced from the executive chef’s personal farm.
