HARLAN, Ky. — Harlan County will have its own brewery in late 2021.
Gill Holland and Geoff Marietta announced the launch of the Harlan County Beer Company, a brewery, and restaurant to be located in downtown historic Harlan in the Bissel Building.
Marietta is the past president of the Harlan County Chamber of Commerce and owner with his wife, Sky, of Moonbow Tipple, Harlan’s bustling coffee shop and cafe.
Holland is known for his work in the historic small-town feel neighborhoods of NuLu and Portland in Louisville.
He was the lead investor with one of Kentucky’s early WeFunder success stories, Cornbread Hemp.
WeFunder is a Public Benefit Corp and a crowd-funding service under the JOBS Act, which allows unaccredited investors to purchase equity in early-stage private companies.
