Beer causes economic boom

ELIZABETHTOWN, KY (WAVE) – It wasn't Christmas cheer but beer that made a big economic boom for Elizabethtown the last two weeks of Dec.

From Dec. 14 to Dec. 31, 2011 more than $300,000 in beer was sold in 27 of the city's retail outlets.

The first two weeks of selling the brew were a pretty big surprise to many of the city officials. The city will continue to track the numbers and see if sales will remain brisk in 2012.
