In 1999, Alltech’s founder and president Dr Pearse Lyons acquired the 200yr old Lexington Brewing Company and set about resurrecting the Lexington brewing and distilling tradition which dates back to 1794.  As one of only a handful of joint brewing and distilling operations in the world, it is no surprise that Alltech Lexington Brewing & Distilling Company produce one of the widest and best-selling ranges of Barrel Aged beers today.
