Kentucky’s booming business in craft beer is coming to Elizabethtown.
Flywheel Brewing looks to be the area’s first and only microbrewery when it opens its doors at 218 S. Mulberry St. later this year. Partners Aaron Hawkins, Ashley Willoughby and Josh Durham created the brainchild to bring locally produced beer to the region.
“We all have local ties and think we can provide something to the area they don’t currently have,” said Hawkins, who is Flywheel’s tap room manager and head of marketing. “In Kentucky, there are a few small towns with breweries, but for the most part, they are in larger cities. We’re starting to see some success stories in places the size of E’town or smaller. So we think we’re in the right market to tap into.”
