Owners of Country Boy Brewing were joined by state and federal officials in Georgetown, Ky. for the groundbreaking of their new production facility and taproom. Georgetown Mayor Tom Prather, State Representative Chuck Tackett, State Senator Majority Leader Damon Thayer, Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture Ryan Quarles and U.S. Congressman Andy Barr were in attendance for the ceremony.
The new 23,000 square foot facility will include a brewery, taproom, outdoor patio and an area for private events. This new location is expected to create 20-25 jobs.
Building a relationship with elected officials is one of the most important government relations functions a member of the craft brewing community can perform. More information on how to connect with government officials can be found at BrewersAssociation.org.
