Presenting sponsors join effort to help local nonprofits
Elizabethtown, Ky. – Kentucky Craft Beer Festival organizers today announced Rhinegeist and Flywheel Brewing are presenting brewery sponsors of the festival, set for June 17 at the historic Brown-Pusey House in downtown Elizabethtown.
“We couldn’t be more excited to not only welcome Rhinegeist back to Elizabethtown this year for the second Kentucky Craft Beer Festival, but also to involve Elizabethtown’s first and only microbrewery,” said Kenny Rambo, co-founder of the Kentucky Craft Beer Festival.
Brews from Cincinnati-based Rhinegeist will be among the many craft beers from around the state and beyond that attendees can sample at the festival.
“Kentucky Craft Beer Festival is a great way for us to promote this booming industry and to connect with craft beer enthusiasts,” said Luke Thacker of Rhinegeist. “We are definitely looking forward to getting back to Elizabethtown.”
Flywheel Brewing’s Aaron Hawkins said the festival is a natural fit for the downtown Elizabethtown brewery. They will on hand to share the latest on their brewery and taproom expected to open this summer.
“We thought it was important to be a part of our home festival,” Hawkins said. “We also wanted to step up and support worthy local causes through Give 270.”
The festival is a fundraiser for Give 270, a non-profit established in 2016 to help fulfill unmet needs in Hardin, LaRue and Meade counties. Give 270 partners with United Way of Central Kentucky to identify those needs.
Also returning to the festival is gold level sponsor Liquor Barn as well as the official designated driver sponsor and Kentucky icon Ale-8-One.
