Did you know that during the late 1800s and early 1900s, Louisville was a major southeastern brewing hub, competing with the likes of Midwestern giants Milwaukee and St. Louis?
It’s true. In fact, back then, it was difficult to walk six blocks through the city without coming across a brewery. It was all due to an influx of German immigrants who saw to it that brewing was a focal point of Louisville’s social and economic culture. They brought with them German brewing traditions - leading to the introduction of lager brewing here. A century later, Louisville’s brewing scene is again rising, with new breweries opening each year and existing breweries raising the bar ever higher.
