In 2010, Steve Beam made the commitment to put his side of the family back in the distilling business and began researching and apprenticing, and formed Limestone Branch Distillers, Inc. in October 2010. His brother Paul joined in and the dream was underway, with critical financial backing from other immediate family members. The groundbreaking took place on May 26, 2011, with the ribbon cutting on Feb. 17, 2012. Under the guidance of their father, the brothers reconstructed a small distillery reminiscent of an era gone by. Steve and Paul and the Limestone Branch Distillery family are now making a new chapter in history as they continue the great traditions set before them.
