The craft beer movement is alive and well in Louisville.
Brewmasters are making beer that’s innovative, interesting, and sometimes a little off-the-wall right here in our hometown. Our specialty is bringing the best of the Bluegrass to you, so we at Mint Julep Tours put together a brand new beer tour called Brew in the Lou to three of Louisville’s best breweries.
Here’s a little about each one:
Against the Grain
This brewer-owned and operated brewery started serving unique and interesting beer in 2011. Since then, Against the Grain has gained national appeal for highly-sought-after releases like their annual Bo & Luke bourbon barrel-aged stout and distinctively designed canned offerings. Their beers run the gamut from classic to a bit crazy with 6+ drafts available daily in their downtown taproom. Mint Julep Tours’ Brew in the Lou beer tour will take you to their rarely-seen production facility in Louisville’s west end where ATG’s mad scientists make the magic happen.
New kids on the block Great Flood Brewing opened their Louisville taproom in 2014 and have quickly made a name for themselves in the local beer scene. What started as a trio of home brewers has grown to a dynamic beer business. In pursuit of the perfect pint, the team at Great Flood crafts scratch-made beers on draft at their Highlands taproom. Brew in the Lou guests will go behind-the-scenes with the brews to see their hands-on process and taste its rewards.
One of the most recognizable names in Louisville beer is Falls City. Originally opened in the early 1900s, Falls City Brewing Co. was recently revived for the modern drinker. They offer their take on old Falls City recipes as well as forward-thinking IPAs and beyond. Brew in the Lou will take you to their taproom and brewery to see how they merge the old and the new.
Brew in the Lou is July 2, 2017 at 1 p.m. Want to join us on an urban beer adventure? Book your ticket for the beer bus online or call us at 502-583-1433 today. Interested in a private tour customized to your beer tastes? Contact us to book a custom experience.
