About twenty breweries participated, offering tastings of more than 50 varieties of beer
LEXINGTON, Ky (WTVQ) — The rear parking lot of Greyline Station was filled with breweries on Saturday for the first-ever “Brews and Bites Oktoberfest” event.
About 20 breweries from across the state were in attendance, including West Sixth, Kentucky Craft Beer and Pivot Brewing.
The breweries offered tastings of more than 50 varieties of beer.
There were also food trucks, shows and games for adults.
According to station Greyline, tickets were nearly sold out for the inaugural event and it was a great way for the community to support local breweries.
“What’s really cool about the beer scene in Lexington is that they’re super strong, super passionate, and they’ll step aside for these different events. Which is crazy because we have Keeneland in town today, the Chevy Chase street fair, a thriller parade, and all these breweries are having events today with these things. There is such a demand for brewery events. Still, they’re also here too so that’s great. It’s important to be able to support your local breweries and to do it in a fun and friendly way,” said Bailey Johnson, Marketing and Events Manager for Greyline Station.
The next event at Greyline station is the International Breeders Cup Block Party on November 4th.
