State’s official soft drink offers festival-goers non-alcoholic choice
Kentucky Craft Beer Festival organizers today welcomed Ale-8-One as the festival’s official Designated Driver Sponsor.
The festival, set for June 18 at the historic Brown-Pusey House in Elizabethtown, will feature a number of craft beers brewed throughout Kentucky and beyond as well as Ale-8-One, the only soft drink invented in Kentucky that is still in existence.
“Kentucky Craft Beer Festival organizers are excited to include this Kentucky icon in the inaugural event,” said Kenny Rambo, co-founder of the Kentucky Craft Beer Festival.
DeAnne Elmore, marketing and public relations manager for Ale-8-One, which celebrates its 90th anniversary this year, said the festival is a fun way to support the community.
“With Ale-8-One recently expanding into the Elizabethtown area and Western Kentucky markets, we especially look forward to the Kentucky Craft Beer Festival and supporting some worthy local causes,” Elmore said.
The festival is a fundraiser for Give 270, a non-profit established earlier this year to help fulfill unmet needs in Hardin, LaRue and Meade counties. The non-profit has partnered with United Way of Central Kentucky to identify those needs.
At the festival, attendees can sample Ale-8-One as well as craft beers from around the state and beyond. Ale-8-One joins presenting brewery sponsor Cincinnati-based Rhinegeist and gold level sponsor Liquor Barn in Elizabethtown.
