 Brewfest Pre Party!
All BoomBozz Pizza & Taphouse locations,
Manny & Merle's & Joella's Hot Chicken.
Tuesday, 9/22/15

Enjoy $2 Goodwood pints and your chance to win 2 Brewfest packages (including admission, 20 food tickets and 2 commemorative pint glasses) at each location!

 Special edition beers from
Mayor Fischer and Ben Sollee

We worked with both of these notable Louisvillians to put together some special beer for the Brewfest. The Mayor brewed his Irish Stout style beer to honor his Irish heritage with Goodwood Brewing. His beer is called 5-0-Brew, in homage to our awesome area code and the fact that he’s Louisville’s 50th mayor. Ben Sollee brewed his Oktoberfest style beer with Apocalypse Brew Works. It’s called Kaytoberfest in honor of his cello. Ben was also glad to work with a brewer using solar heated water and local hops.

Tentative tapping times (at the rotating taps): 6pm/5-0-Brew, 7pm/Kaytoberfest


Be sure to visit the Brewseum at the Brewfest. It's a self-directed journey through the history of craft beer in Louisville, supported by demos and a ‘how-to’ area. See the impact that local beer has had on the Louisville community over the years. The Brewseum will be located on the Overlook Deck within the ballpark.

Make Your Mark At Brewfest

We'll be making a local beer/wine/bourbon art piece, and we need your help. Come to the Keep Louisville Weird booth and glue bottle caps and other items (that we'll provide) on this weird tribute to our locals. Thanks to artist Adam Horton for helping us make this happen!
