Hops & Spirits Kentucky

We welcome in Kristen and Justin Matthews (3:05 mark), co-owners of Eridanus Brewing in Russell, Ky., for our Q&A. They talk about how Eridanus Brewing came to be, home brewing beer and tea, creating a tea and beer taproom, finding their location in Russell, renovating a historic train depot, the meaning behind their name, what folks can expect when visiting, what's next and more.

Heaven's Door Spirits recently announced its plans to open a new distillery in Pleasureville, Ky., along with a brand experience in downtown Louisville.
