    Might possibly be relocating to the Morehead/Mt. Sterling area in the near future. I realize that Rowan is a moist county surrounded by dry counties, but has there been any improvement since the 3 places that were reviewed back in '11? If I move here, will I be stepping backward into what WV was 5 or 6 years ago? I have low expectations due to life in these hinterlands for 10 years, but is Redhook, SN, and a few macro 'imports' all I will find in the area?

    Also for the Lexingtonites--am fairly well versed in the hospitality that is available there and will most likely be visiting quite often, and I thank you for suggestions in that direction. I'm just hoping to find something a little more local to Morehead.

    There is not much to speak of in Morehead. First Street Liquors has a very mediocre selection, but it is the best that Morehead has to offer. Best of luck and welcome!

    I'll send a note to Nolen12 and have him PM you. He lives in My Sterling and is the only one I know with craft beer knowledge.

    Maybe live in Lexington and commute. Or plan all your beer purchases here.

    Having lived in Morehead for several years and now a Maysville resident, there's not much to speak of in Morehead. Tri-County liquors has a decent selection but is overpriced. Mt. Sterling does have better selection with more options for locations to buy from. As others have said, Lexington is probably your best bet, especially if you're thinking Mt. Sterling. I'm an hour east of the Newport/Cincinnati area, so I do most of my "better" purchases there. Maysville in itself is okay. I can get Stone, Bell's, and Great Lakes (along with others) here. Satisfies me well enough.

    I'm a rep for a distributor in KY. We carry the best craft brews in the state. Bells, Stone, dogfish, Three Floyds, Great Lakes. Just to mention a few. I recently started going to the Maysville area. I haven't made it over towards Morehead. I didnt know there were any bottle shops or anything over that way. I will stop over that way and get some good beers in that area for you.

    Do I know you? I was born in Maysville, have friends in Morehead, and am building a brewery right past Mayslick.

    Small world! It's possible that we've met, but maybe not. If not, it needs to happen!
