Last night I got a sneak peek of the new Great Flood Brewing Co., which is set to open Friday at 2120 Bardstown Road near the Douglas Loop (right next to Twig & Leaf). The room was bright and spacious — with ample table and standing room. Images from Louisville’s great flood of 1937 are depicted on the walls, and framed newspapers from the time hang by the booths. (Did you know 70 percent of Louisville was under water?!)
The beer list was simple — APA, IPA, Brown, Hoppy Irish and Wit — and it was quite delicious. I had some of each (it’s my job), and my favorite was the IPA, with the Hoppy Irish a close second. They don’t offer food but will have several takeout menus from nearby restaurants. (I suggest grabbing some Dundee Dip and potato skins from Dundee Tavern on your way.)
The grand opening is Friday, April 11, at 4 p.m. All pints will be $4. And they have T-shirts and glasses for sale.
Welcome to the neighborhood, Great Flood!
