A chance to build something new in a town built on bourbon.
Our founders realized there was a piece missing in Bardstown. Being the Bourbon Capital of the World meant there was already a strong foundation of distilleries and brewing culture, but nothing that celebrated the craft of craft beer. We decided to change that.
Lee, formerly Head Brewer at Marker 48 Brewing in Weeki Wachee, Florida, first discovered craft beer while working at Mellow Mushroom. He landed his first brewery job in 2013. While there, he ingrained himself into every aspect of the business from beertending to distribution. His love and knowledge of brewing grew over the years and has since had the opportunity to brew many different styles of beer across many projects, including quite a few barrel aged. Lee is very excited about the opportunity to bring his experience and knowledge to Bardstown’s first ever craft brewery.
Caleb, part chef, part manager, part home brewer, has always loved cooking from a young age. He started out at Bluegrass Brewing Company, attended Sullivan University and became a member of the Sullivan Culinary Team in 2010. He then moved on to become Chef at 610 Magnolia, where he advanced the Charcuterie and Gardening programs. In 2013, he then took a role as Sous Chef for the opening of Milkwood. With his expertise as our GM, he’ll be bringing some exciting seasonal flairs to traditional favorites.
Glenn is a Chef originally from and now returning to Bardstown, KY. Growing up in a rural setting with agricultural roots, his early exposure to farm life grants perspective of how food is truly sourced. Early years in the kitchen were most influenced by his grandmother, instilling a love for food experimentation grounded in southern cuisine. His first restaurant experience began at the age of 14 here in Bardstown. Glenn formally trained at Sullivan University in Culinary and Hospitality Management before gaining experience of the realms of hotels and catering. In 2013, he began to work for Chef Edward Lee in Louisville, Kentucky becoming Executive Chef of Milkwood through 2018. Leaving Milkwood for culinary travels to broaden his experience and perspective of food around the world, Glenn has returned to his home and is excited to begin a new chapter with Scout and Scholar Brewery.
“My approach to brewing is to explore traditional styles, while at the same time continually pushing the envelope.”
—Lee Northcutt, Head Brewer
