Louisville Ale trail started this petition to Governor Andy beshear and

The Kentucky Common should be the Official State Beer of Kentucky. 

Louisville, and all of the Commonwealth, can rally around beer in addition to bourbon. Not only is KY’s current beer scene booming in 2021, but our beer scene was historically and culturally significant to the United States in the past as well.

One of only a few indigenous beer styles created and popularized within the United States, the Kentucky Common is a dark cream beer that gained notoriety between 1850 and Prohibition.

During this period, 75% of the beer sold around the Louisville area was Kentucky Common style beer. It was inexpensive and could be produced from brew day to delivery in only a week.

Even just this last year, the Brewers Association updated their style guideline to officially include the Kentucky Common as a defined style of beer.

Now home to over 90 breweries, KY is reintroducing itself into the beer world.

Let’s celebrate that. Make "Kentucky Common" the Official State Beer of Kentucky.
