Bourbon may be king in Kentucky, but we’ve got plenty of other local options on the drink menu. From a thriving craft brewing scene in Lexington to a historically significant wine culture with roots in the late 18th century, our Kentucky-made beverages are all worth a sip. We’ve even got our own homegrown soft drink, Ale-8-One – a ginger-and-citrus soda that Kentuckians have treasured since 1926, with or without bourbon mixed in. Below, explore our craft beverage scene and start getting thirsty for your visit.
