Economic Development

ASHLAND, Ky — Tomcat Bourbon and Brew House is officially open for business.  Flatbreads, candied bacon with a bourbon maple glaze, flank steak and of course bourbon, tots and sliders are all on the menu and the kitchen is open. The venue began in February with plans to open in June, but the project turned out much bigger than expected, said co-owner Scott Ball. However, in the end, it was worth it all, he said. Ball and fellow owner Scott Wamsley are both 2003 graduates of Ashland and played football and baseball, respectively, during their time in school. Now they own the Tomcat Bourbon and Brew House located on 29th Street.

President's Report

October 8, 2021

Do Good Things! Hello from the desk of the Alliance. Today I want to share a short but powerful message. The Ashland Alliance's strength is made up of the collective strength of this community and you as the business community. Together we have helped build this country and this tristate. Even in the midst of a pandemic and economic challenge, we have done great things together. Today, I was honored to be partners with King’s Daughters Health Foundation's Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign. October is the month of the year when all of us highlight the fight to end breast cancer. Today was a special day. We heard stories of triumph. We heard the value of early detection and world-class treatment right here at home. King’s Daughters Health Foundation kicked off a campaign for a new mobile mammography unit. KMDC serves many regions of Kentucky that don't have access to or resources for early detection of breast cancer. This unit saves lives. I heard Rocky Adkins speak from his heart about what it is like to be a cancer survivor and how the good work of many of you has raised over three million dollars to fight this terrible disease.
