Lexington’s Old Mill Brewpub has been opened for a few months now, but the city’s first brewpub hasn’t had the necessary equipment or permits to brew their own beer on site. Fortunately, that’s no longer the case, and Old Mill has finally begun production on its first beer.
Monday, Old Mill Brewmaster Matt Rodgers posted this photo on Facebook with the message “First brew day at Old Mill!” Rodgers told me recently his first in-house beer would be an oatmeal porter, and he’s stuck with that plan. Old Mill has a 3.5 BBL brewhouse with two 7 BBL fermenters. Expect to see it on tap at in a few weeks.
