Lexington, a city whose beer history remains unknown to most of its loyal patrons, has a rich and storied beer brewing history dating back to the late 1700s. These early brewers produced ales, porters and common table beers in the English tradition of using top fermenting yeast. This method produces beers that are full-bodied and robust with a degree of bitterness. The hops that added the bitterness also acted as a preservative. These beers were aged and served at room temperature. At Steele Dragon Brewery Tours, we want to share these facts, and many more, with the finest people and the finest beverages we know…. beer, bourbon, and wine. Although the Central Kentucky region is more known for its Bourbon distilleries, Lexington has truly become a powerhouse in the Craft Beer Scene in the past 10 years.
“When my wife and I started the company, we wanted to meld our passion for craft beer, wine, bourbon, local history and local businesses into one. We have grown that passion into a business that unites people from all walks of life. It is a dream come true for us to share this with Lexington natives and visitors alike.
We can’t wait to see you out and show you what Lexington and Central Kentucky has to offer.”
John and Traci Steele, Founders
