Kyle Degener

Kyle Degener is an orchardist, cidermaker and the creator of Holy Beez, which is the only cider specific orchard in Kentucky.  His first experience with cider was 22 years ago while living in London, England, and that sparked his interest. He then developed a passion for growing apple trees in his backyard in Kentucky and making cider from those apples.  His family took that experience and started Holy Beez Orchard in 2016.  The goal is to bring harvest driven Kentucky grown cider to his hometown of Louisville, Kentucky.  Becoming a Certified Pommelier™ was always something he wanted to achieve.  Kyle loves a challenge, has a thirst for studying the craft, and a desire to prove he belongs amongst the brightest in the cider industry.
