Who knew that Georgetown in North-Eastern Kentucky would be so full of superlatives? The largest Toyota manufacturing facility in the world sits outside this tiny town. After graduate school, our guest, Daniel Harrison (DH), co-founder of Country Boy Brewery, took advantage of Toyota’s affiliation with Georgetown University to teach English in Tahara, Japan.
Arriving in Tahara, DH was already a beer fan, but he was blown away by the quality of Japanese beer and made it his mission to sample every local beer he could find. Returning home a few years later, he was set on creating the best beer in Kentucky. The Japanese would call his hard work – ganbaru – the determination to never stop until a goal is achieved. Now Georgetown has a few more superlatives to add to its list – Country Boy Brewery is the largest brewhouse in Kentucky & the first new construction brewery in KY since prohibition.
Here are a few photos of Country Boy Brewery!
