Louisville Beer: A Top 10 Global Destination
Louisville has long been associated with bourbon, but another scene is starting to gain significant traction: beer. Louisville is home to a burgeoning brewery scene with new breweries emerging left and right.
Vine Pair Magazine recently named Louisville’s beer scene one of the top 10 in the world for 2018! Citing a virtual non-existent scene 10 year ago, to a thriving 15 craft brewery, and growing. Louisville is now on the map and is becoming a tourist destination for our unique draft flavors.
Brew and View – The Ultimate Beer Destination Airbnb
To support this growing tourist scene, themed Airbnb properties are starting to emerge. One of these is Brew and View – a renovated and thoughtfully expanded shotgun house on Barret Avenue in the Phoenix Hill neighborhood. Brew and View is located in the heart of Louisville’s Brewery Scene and sits within walking distance of three breweries (Mile Wide Beer Co, Gravely Brewing, and Falls City Beer). They are just a short drive or bike ride to several others. Paristown Pointe, an entertainment district under development, plans to feature a beer garden and second Louisville location of Goodwood Brewing Co., and also within walking distance. Brew and View can accommodate 8 guests and offers great views of downtown Louisville from the two-story rear deck.
Popular Louisville Beer Destinations
Other popular Louisville areas to explore the beer scene are NULU, Downtown, Old Louisville, Germantown, and The Highlands. Each features unique local breweries, many of which serve food or are visited by local food trucks. Our favorite destinations include Monnik Beer Co in Germantown, Cumberland Brews in the Highlands, and Goodwood Brewing Company in NULU.
While you’re in Louisville checking out the brew scene, be sure to see the ponies at Churchill Downs and visit the bourbon distilleries in NULU and Downtown. There is never a lack of things to do in Louisville.
