BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - The craft beer movement is growing in Bowling Green.

Two businesses that serve craft beer soon will be available to patrons in the city and a third new operation will have supplies for the home brewer.

Those familiar with Kentucky’s market say the state has fewer than 20 craft beer operations, but more are expected, The Daily News reported (https://bit.ly/1POJtpz ).

The White Squirrel Brewery and Taproom is opening its doors this month. It will produce an IPA, a nut brown and German-style Kolsch beer.

This summer, Bliss Ave Brewing Company will open featuring site-brewed in large tanks and catered food. In addition, Blue Holler Brew, a home brewing supplies store, will open in the city Saturday.

The craft beer industry experienced 18 percent growth in 2014, according to a state of the industry report offered at the 32nd annual Craft Brewers Conference this year.

Bliss Ave will feature site-brewed beer with catered food. White Squirrel will have beer from what the owners call a “nano-brewery,” and a full kitchen.

Coffey and his wife, Jennifer, are starting Bliss Ave Brewing Company on downtown’s Fountain Square. It will be a beer-only establishment, with catered food provided for gatherings, the owners said.

“I don’t want to be in the restaurant business,” Rob Coffey said.
