Welcome to the official Louisville Craft Beer Week blog! Hopefully, most of you are already aware of us through our Facebook page. If not, let us take a minute to tell you all a little bit about ourselves.
In January of 2010, the simple idea of the first ever Louisville Craft Beer Week began. Quickly, this idea spawned the Beer Brain Trust. We are a motley crew made up of Craft Brewers, Brewery Representatives and Craft Beer Distributors. Our humble goal was to create an event that would celebrate all that is good and pure about Craft Beer. We adopted the motto, "Educate...Inspire...Imbibe". This should tell you all you need to know about us. We seek to educate those interested in Craft Beer, inspire those who have not yet converted and imbibe this delicious nectar which we have all dedicated our lives and careers to promoting.
Beginning on Friday September 24th and continuing to Saturday October 2nd, LCBW will feature multiple beer events everyday. There will be daily tastings at most local stores selling craft beer. There will be beer dinners, pint nights, happy hour specials and assorted festivals. All events will feature Craft Beer from breweries around the country, hopefully including brewery reps for you to meet and talk to.
The Beer Brain Trust is busy as we speak lining up the major events for the week. Details will be finalized soon, and we'll get them to you as soon as we can. We can tell you, however, that LCBW will end on October 2nd at the BBC Taproom downtown with their annual Volksfest. There will be bands, a possible Louisville pizza "Throwdown" and, of course, lots of good Craft Beer (including a special barrel-aged beer section).
So, that's it in a nutshell. We will be posting updates as we get them, so stay tuned. If you have any questions about the week, feel free to e-mail us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
