Alltech is marking the end of Lexington (Ky.) Craft Beer Week with a Craft Brews & Food Fest on May 17. It will offer samples from more than 30 national breweries as well as local favors, giving attendees the opportunity to “taste new and different beers while enjoying a sample of local food.”
Highlight of the event will be Kentucky’s first professional craft beer competition, based on Alltech’s Dublin Craft Beer Cup. Brewers from around the globe will face off as their craft brews of all styles are judged by a panel of industry veterans for gold, silver and bronze medals. From these winners, only one beer and brewery will be awarded the Alltech Commonwealth Craft Beer Cup.
Four qualified judges will rate the beers, following standard beer judging procedures. Medals will be awarded based on the score the beer receives, and one beer and brewery will take home the Alltech Commonwealth Craft Beer Cup. More details are at http://www.alltechbrewsandfood.com/.
