Against the Grain Brewery opened its doors in 2011 as Louisville’s first brewer-owned and operated brewery. And over the past ten years, Against the Grain has grown to four locations and a production facility. From the beginning of the Smokehouse in 2011 to opening the Public House in 2019, ATG has made a name for itself as a brewpub. However, this past year ATG decided to dabble into something more than beer and opened their first music venue, the Flamingo Lounge. ATG went back to its roots, and most recently, opened the ATG Sandwich Emporium which sits above the Flamingo Lounge in downtown Louisville.
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.
Against the Grain Brewery is hoping to change that. The brewery announced they are opening their fourth location in downtown Louisville in the building that formerly housed Another Place Sandwich Shop and Jimmy Can’t Dance that closed on February 28, 2021.
For anyone reading this outside the state of Kentucky, welcome to a teaching lesson on how to properly pronounce the city of “Louisville.” It is Loo-a-vuhl. Not Lewis-ville. Not Louie-ville. LOO-A-VUHL. Against the Grain Brewery has released the newest beer to their portfolio, a beer that educates the rest of the world on the correct pronunciation of their city, Loo-a-vuhl Pale.
Can you believe we are already one month into 2021? It’s tough to say that 2021 is much better than 2020, so far. But, one thing hasn’t changed: the beer produced by a nation of brewers remains good as ever. The PorchDrinking team certainly loves to demonstrate that with photos of their beer-drinking experiences. We hope you enjoy this week’s version of What We’re Drinking, and we also hope that you have a moment or two this week to kick back, take a deep breath, and enjoy a malty libation of your own.
A new year brings hope for prosperity and change. It is also the season of the 1040, 1099, W-2, and countless other federal tax forms. While we are all familiar with the painful process of filling out tax papers, it may surprise you to know the nefarious reason we pay federal income tax.
On the weekend of November 1-2, the Horse Capitol of the World, Lexington, Kentucky, played host to the Alltech National Equestrian Games. This event attracts horse aficionados from all over the country to our quaint city to share in our first-class horse facilities, our hospitality, and our culture. But there was more than horses on display this weekend at the Kentucky Horse Park, as Alltech introduced patrons to the tastes of Kentucky with an exhibition of Kentucky foods, bourbons, and craft beers, aptly named Savor Kentucky.
