“Lou’s Brews” bike ride celebrates local beer making

Mayor Greg Fischer has begun touting Louisville’s growing craft brewing presence, wanting to make the local beer scene as visitor friendly as is the Urban Bourbon Trail. To that end, he has commissioned “Lou’s Brews,” an on-line guide that locates the breweries in the city and Southern Indiana  and on Saturday, Aug. 29, the mayor is hosting a “Lou’s Brews” bike ride, leaving Great Flood Brewing, 2120 Bardstown Road at 10 a.m. for a brewery “crawl” stopping at five local breweries for tours of the facilities, and talks brewers. Wee tastings will also be provided.

At about 2 p.m. the bike ride portion of the event will end at Falls City Brewery, 120 N. 10th St., where there will be a street festival and block party,  free and open to the public.
