Local officials and members of the Beam family participated in a groundbreaking ceremony Thursday, May 26, on the site of the planned Limestone Branch Distillery. Brothers Steve and Paul Beam of Louisville are opening the microdistillery on 14 acres in the Crossroads Industrial Park, located on the Marion County Veterans Memorial Highway. The Beams' great-great-grandfather, J.W. Dant, started making whiskey in Marion County 175 years ago. Steve Beam said they had looked at other communities as a possible location for the microdistillery, but none of them were as receptive as Lebanon.
