All eyes will be on the city of Louisville on Saturday. It might be for just two minutes, but it will be an exciting two minutes. If you aren’t familiar with Louisville, the beer scene is incredible and growing. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, six new breweries opened and currently, three are in the planning phases.
While this city and state are known for their bourbon, the people here are ready to let the world know about its beer scene. To help you learn more about Louisville’s beer scene, here is PorchDrinking’s guide to Lousiville breweries.
When you think of the city of Louisville, you often think of the Kentucky Derby and bourbon. The founders of the Louisville Ale Trail want people to start adding beer to that list. The first annual Lousiville Beer Appreciation Day will be held Sunday, May 2 to highlight both Louisville’s growing craft beer scene and the city’s rich beer and brewing history.

After being cooped up in your house all winter, it’s finally time to get your dog back to the dog park! Let’s be honest, you both need it. Your dog has all kinds of energy and he or she is ready to run and sniff and play!
You are completely over your dog continuing to paw at you while you’re on a Zoom work conference. Your dog may have gained some lbs during winter and it’s time for them to get in shape again. And your dog missed all his friends! Before you go, learn about all the different types of dogs you will experience and the beers that pair with them! And, when you’re done reading this, grab your good boy and girl and head to your local dog park!
It’s officially porch drinking, grass mowing, sitting by the pool and boating season. And some of the best beers to pair with those occasions are Mexican Lagers.
One Mexican Lager in particular that you’ll see a lot of Kentuckians pairing with those occasions is Gravely Brewing La Bamba Mexican Lager. La Bamba has been a fan-favorite at Gravely since opening in August 2018.
It’s easy to be a brewery that makes good beer. What’s harder is being a brewery that makes good beer and does the right thing. When brothers David and Daniel Kleban founded Maine Beer Company in 2009, they set out with a mission to do what’s right – no matter what. For themselves. Their staff. And the planet.
In Episode 39 of the “Boys Are From Märzen” podcast, Kindsey Bernhard converses with Rhiannon Hoeweler, director of strategic impact at MadTree Brewing in Cincinnati, for a special Earth Day episode.
Earth Day isn’t just once a year celebration for Lawson’s Finest Liquids, it’s a 365-day celebration. Reducing their impact on the planet is a year-round effort for the Vermont brewery.
Lawson’s Finest latest effort includes the announcement of a 495-module solar parking canopy that will offset 50% of the brewery’s power usage. Lawson’s Finest has partnered with SunCommon, a solar energy solution to install the solar panels above the parking lot. The solar panels are fully permitted and plan to be completed this summer.
By reading the name and looking at the logo, it is clear MadTree Brewing has a love for trees and the environment. Through this passion, the Cincinnati brewery has committed itself to being a sustainable and environmental-friendly brewery.
Since day one, MadTree has embraced its name and worked to celebrate and protect nature, while at the same time working to reduce its impact on the environment.

The past year and a half has been very difficult for businesses in downtown Louisville. Between the COVID-19 shutdowns, the lack of tourism and the Breonna Taylor protests, downtown Louisville has taken an unfortunate hit.

The Charlotte resident has turned her love of craft beer into helping other women of color who want to work in the beer industry through her Road to 100 initiative.
Have you ever wanted to have a beer named after yourself? Well, all you need to do is found a city and then have a brewery open in that city 172 years later.
That’s what happened to Martha Ann Wood. Wood and her husband Bartholomew settled and founded the city of Hopkinsville, KY in 1796. There, Martha and her husband spent the rest of their lives with their 11 children.
In September of 2016, 172 later, another woman came and founded the city’s first and only craft brewery in Hopkinsville. Kate Russell founded Hopkinsville Brewing Co. and has since changed the minds of many small-town Kentuckians about what craft beer is.
