Stories from the Vault: Picking a Brewery Name

We love telling you about what we have going on at the brewery. Heck, we started this blog to keep you up-to-date on what’s happening with our expansion. As we thought about these things, though, we realized that we’ve sort of neglected to tell you about our past. So, without further ado, we’d like to […]

Meet the Great Flood Team: Grace Wolford

Last week, you might have noticed that we threw a couple events. First off was our Fancy Party, where we brought in some top-notch, hard-to-find beers for your drinking pleasure.

Let’s face it. John Timmons is pretty much a Louisville legend. As the founder of ear X-tacy, a nation-wide symbol of independent record stores, John stands for a lot of what we love most about our town: its vibrancy, its commitment to the unique, and its openness to encouraging local businesses to prosper. For 26 […]
