Beer snobs unite! Here are Louisville’s top bars for Craft Beer.
It takes little more than a casual glance to realize something is bubbling in the Louisville beer industry of late. A couple of new brewhouses are on their way in, established brewers are looking to expand and new Louisville-made beers are hitting store shelves locally and beyond.
When nine Kentucky breweries got together nearly two years ago to form the Kentucky Guild of Brewers, the goal was a unified organization that would provide a singular voice with which to promote their beers, breweries and events.
Step into any local restaurant and you may not initially notice the finer details: the aroma resonating from foreign spices, the positioning of the tables and chairs, even the paintings hanging on the walls. Often times these details are part of a mightier undertaking by one person who decided to pursue his dream of starting his own business.
It was only a few short months ago that I scratched together a quick post about the new brew pub coming to the Highlands. Recently I was able to meet with Matt Fuller and Vince Cain to grab a sneak peak at their new brewery, Great Flood Brewing Co…
How far can the craft beer boom go in Louisville? Apparently, it is not tapped out yet. Right now, 2120 Bardstown Road near Douglas Loop looks like an empty storefront. But if you look closely at one window, there is a sign that reads “Coming Soon, The Great Flood Brewing Company.”
Matt Fuller, Vince Cain and Zach Barnes are working their butts off these days. On a recent Saturday afternoon, Fuller and Cain, along with a couple other helpers, were busy building out a 3,000-square-foot space in the Highlands in preparation for opening Great Flood Brewing, their new craft brewery.
This local craft brewery is opening in Douglass Loop at 2120 Bardstown rd, right in the heart of the Highlands and will be offering rotating ales. According to 502brews blog, the brewery will have a capcity of 120, with bar seats, standing tables and plenty of open and inviting space. Another great place to look forward to!
