Frankfort, KY - On Friday, 16 Kentucky craft breweries will release beers made with Kentucky Proud products. The first 100 customers at each participating brewery will receive a custom poster and glass at no charge.

"These one-of-a-kind beers showcase the talent, creativity, and hard work of our craft brewers and farm families," Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles said. "Our craft beer industry is generating millions of dollars in economic activity and hundreds of jobs. I am proud to say this partnership resulted in more than 1,700 pounds of Kentucky Proud products in craft beers this year. Projects like these, which result in new market opportunities for our farmers, display the continued strength of the Kentucky Proud brand."

Kentucky has more than 60 craft breweries and microbreweries that generate more than 800 jobs with an economic impact of $657 million a year, according to the Kentucky Guild of Brewers. Last winter, the Commonwealth's craft brewing industry got a lift from the Kentucky General Assembly when it passed legislation, later signed by Gov. Matt Bevin, that eased limits on the amount of packaged beer that breweries can sell to individual customers.
