When miners began mining, brewers began brewing. Based in the heart of the Appalachian coalfields of Eastern Kentucky, Harlan County Beer Company’s vision is to bring people together to celebrate historic Harlan County’s past and future. Harlan County’s coal helped build America and win World War II. It’s now time to say thank you to Harlan County and its people by drinking a beer.
We will make that long overdue thank you happen by brewing high-quality beer and serving delicious locally inspired food in a beautifully restored 100-year old historic building on the courthouse square in downtown Harlan, Kentucky. Our mission is to create a growing and sustainable business that strengthens community bonds, builds pride, and contributes to the growing tourism industry in Appalachia.
