Dry Ground Brewing Company

Paducah, KY 42001

270- 201-2096

History:

In 1937 the Ohio River flooded Paducah and Luther Carson's Coca-Cola bottling plant on South 6th street was submerged. Mr. Carson used an empty syrup keg to float out of the second floor window to reach a rescue boat. On the return trip up Broadway, Mr. Carson said, "If I ever reach DRY GROUND, it is there that I will build my new bottling plant." Plans for construction began immediately following the flood, and in June of 1939 Mr. Carson celebrated the grand opening of his new state-of-the-art facility located 31 blocks from the river upon the DRY GROUND across the street from the Red Cross evacuation site where he had been off-loaded following his rescue. It's here, we've chosen to open Paducah's first craft brewery. We have 28 craft beers on tap, including over 10 brewed in house. Visit us if you love great beer, community, history and craftsmanship.
