Just saw this article in the Lexington Herald Leader.

Says only 30 jobs! I'm not to excited about having the yeast & mash smell along with all the pollution that comes with a distillery in our county for only 30 jobs!

Have you ever been near the distilleries in Frankfort? The smell along makes me sick to my stomach. I can't imagine trying to go fishing on Guist Creek Lake after this is put here.
