The Old Firehouse Brewery, established in 2013, is a family owned and operated business. The proprietors are local area residents Adam Cowan, a former fire fighter, and his wife Lori Ward. The Chief Brewer is Ben Ramsey, previously with Alltech/Kentucky Ale. As the name implies, OFB’s brewery/taproom is located in an old firehouse and decorated with historical firefighter memorabilia.
