Historic Neighborhood Hosts Craft Beer Festival
Event returns to Old Louisville Highlighting Local Breweries
LOUISVILLE, KY (August 10, 2021) – Kentucky’s finest independent brewers will gather in Central Park (1340 S. 4th Street) for the fourth annual Old Lou Brew Craft Beer Festival
on Friday, August 27 from 6:00pm to 10:00pm,
Participating brewers include over a dozen of Louisville’s most popular breweries: Against the Grain; Akasha; Atrium, Chimera, Falls City; Gallant Fox; Holsopple; Hometown Brewing; Mile Wide; Monnik; Old Louisville Brewery; Uncrafted Territory; and West Sixth. Unique summer ales are expected to be a highlight along with some of Bourbon City’s top local food trucks including Grecian Mama; Good Belly; The Prince; and Froggy Popcorn.
Live music will include Louisville's own Bridge 19 and Little Band with a sound pallet of moody electric guitars, horns, accordion, & pedal steel - with rhythmic stylings of Nola jazz meets Americana. The two bands will play separately and together during the evening.
The event takes place in historic Old Louisville, the nation’s largest preservation district of Victorian era homes with more than a dozen old mansions open to lodging as Bed & Breakfasts and a growing number of short term rentals. Proceeds of the event support the nonprofit advocacy work of the Old Louisville Neighborhood Council
(OLNC), which protects and promotes the entire neighborhood. They offer guided walking tours year-round because Historic Old Louisville is a world-class heritage tourism destination.
“Old Lou Brew is becoming one of the city’s best beer festivals just because it’s so relaxed and fun,” said Derrick Pedolzky, Chairman of the Old Louisville Neighborhood Council.
