2023 Summer Beer Fest at Frazier
Summer Beer Fest is back on Main!
The Frazier History Museum is excited to announce its third annual Summer Beer Fest at Frazier, a block party in front of the museum on Main and 9th Streets—featuring more than 200 specialty beers, food, retail, live music, and a fun zone with games and activities! VIP tickets sell out fast, so grab a group and secure your tickets today. “We’ve created a new tradition on Main Street celebrating the rich brewing history in Kentucky,” Frazier president Andy Treinen said. “As we add our signature touches, it’ll get bigger and better every year. We’re so excited to bring folks to the heart of downtown Louisville for something special to enjoy.”
This year, we will have more than 200 specialty beers—many of which will be available exclusively to festivalgoers who purchased VIP Admission. On tap will be a wide variety of craft and specialty beers: over 80 local, regional, and out-of-state breweries will be represented. In addition to the selection of standard craft and specialty beers, festivalgoers will have access to a selection of gluten-free/gluten-reduced beers, low-calorie IPAs, hard ciders, and spiked seltzers.
This year’s beer fest will again take place in front of the museum, on Main Street between 8th and 9th Streets; and on the side of the museum, on 9th between Main and Washington. The Frazier’s Gateway Garden, which extends from Main to Washington on the east side of the museum, will again host the VIP garden experience. Traffic will be rerouted so the festival can occupy the whole block.
