Inaugural Louisville Winter Beerfest Presented by West Sixth Brewing Launches February 14-15 at Kentucky International Convention Center!
Louisville, KY – The Inaugural Louisville Winter Beerfest Presented by West Sixth Brewing descends upon downtown Louisville this February 14-15, 2020. The two-night celebration of craft beer & spirits features more than 325 local, regional and hard-to-find craft beers from more than 125 breweries including Against the Grain, Goodwood Brewing and more. Handmade cocktails from distillers and distributors are also on offer as are concessions from local food trucks. The festival offers live music both Friday and Saturday night – all indoors and climate-controlled – at the Kentucky International Convention Center. “Louisville is absolutely primed for an event of this scale,” says event co-Founder Matt King. “West Sixth building in NULU certainly agrees. But we’re not taking anything for granted. We’re pulling out all the stops to ensure our Inaugural event leaves a lasting impression.” Proceeds from Louisville Winter Beerfest benefit Animal Rescue Partners in their mission to find “forever homes” for animals in need.
Hundreds of Beers, One Place, One Great Price
Spanning more than 150,000 square feet inside the Kentucky International Convention Center, Louisville Winter Beerfest features more than 325 different craft beers from more than 125 breweries to choose from! The event offers an inexpensive way to sample sometimes very expensive beers and spirits while learning from Brewers, Distillers and Distributors. Some of the beers that will be on hand cost as much $18 a small bottle or $500 a keg. In total, over 10,000 Gallons of Beer will be dispensed at Louisville Winter Beerfest! A full beer & spirit list will be released via www.louisvillebeerfest.com in mid-January, sans a few surprise offerings that we know will thrill attendees.
Party with a Purpose
Proceeds from the Inaugural Louisville Winter Beerfest benefit Animal Rescue Partners and their local partner facilities in their mission to find “forever homes” for animals in need.
“Louisville Winter Beerfest will be a great party for ten-thousand-plus people. But giving back to the community is a core value for us.” says event co-founder Craig Johnson. “If you love animals like we do, you can drink, eat and dance knowing that you’re also giving back.”
