The Western KY Brewery Hop

Beer fans are loving this news! There's now a craft beer trail here in western Kentucky. It features thirteen breweries in nine different western Kentucky cities. Take a look at who's pouring the goods along the trail!

According to our friends at Visit Owensboro, the Western KY Brewery Hop is open to anyone 21 or older.  The first step in participating is picking up your official craft beer trail passport.  You can do this at your local CVB office or at your local, participating brewery. The goal of the trail, obviously, is to try a beer at each of the breweries on the trail.  Once you purchase a beer at one of the locations, the brewery will stamp your passport to show you've made your stop there.  Once you have visited each location, you can mail your completed passport to the Henderson Convention and Visitors Bureau to claim your prize.  Not only will you receive your passport back, you'll get a commemorative Western KY Brewery Hop pint glass showing you've mastered the trail and that you are officially a craft beer aficionado.

By the way, there is no timeline for when you have to complete your passport.  If you'd like more information about the craft beer trail, CLICK HERE!
