Rover Red Hand Debut & NABC Tap Takeover
At The Irish Rover, 2319 Frankfort Avenue in Louisville
NABC is delighted to brew three rotating house beers for our old and dear friends at the Irish Rover. Rover Red Hand is the third and most recent one, joining The Parting Glass and Celtic Craic (the latter returns to the lineup later this fall). Red Hand, an Irish-style red ale, debuts on September 15. For LCBW, these other NABC favorites also will be tapped on the 15th: Bob’s Old 15-B, Community Dark, Elector, Hoptimus and Naughty Girl.
Tuesday, September 16
NABC at Tumbleweed Waterfront
At Tumbleweed Tex-Mex Grille & Margarita Bar, 1201 River Road in Louisville
Tumbleweed originated during the 1970s in a tiny space across from New Albany High School. Now Louisville’s flagship Tumbleweed location will pour Helles and Black & Blue Grass for LCBW, with draft Black & Blue Grass coming to other regional Tumbleweed locations in coming weeks.
Wednesday, September 17
NABC Beer Dinner at Simply Thai

Thursday, September 18
NABC/The Garage Bar Beer Dinner
At The Garage Bar, 700 E. Market Street in Louisville
Past collaborative food and beer pairings at The Garage Bar have been top-rate. NABC brings the beers, and staff at The Garage Bar pairs the beers with regular menu items. This time NABC is bringing Black & Blue Grass, Solidarity, Beak’s Best Bitter and Action! APA, with a rare added bonus: A cask-conditioned pin of Hoptimus-a-Rita, Louisville’s classic Double IPA dry-orange-peeled.
Friday, September 19
ReSurfaced: A Pop-Up Plaza on Main
At 615-621 West Main Street in Louisville
How do we preview something that’s never happened before? Here’s the idea, and everyone’s excited about how it will proceed: “The first initiative in the ReSurfaced movement is to take the currently underutilized space behind the facades of 615-621 West Main Street in downtown Louisville, and create a six week long pop-up beer garden, outdoor cafe, and event space beginning on September 19, 2014.” We know that NABC’s Community Dark will be among the beers tapped at the start.
Saturday, September 20
Lock, Stock & Smoking Barrels
At Copper & Kings American Brandy Company, 1111 East Washington Street in Louisville
Copper & Kings asked a dozen regional craft breweries from Kentucky and Indiana, including NABC, to select a beer and age it in brandy barrels. The results will be available for sampling in this first-of-its-kind LCBW event.
Saturday, September 20
Seven Sense Fest
At 2100-2300 South Preston Street in Louisville
It’s a free, all-ages street festival with live music, craft beer, spirits, local food, and arts & crafts, benefiting Boys & Girls Haven. Streetscape anchors will be Zanzabar, The New Vintage, Greenhaus and Purrswaytions. Black & Blue Grass and Community Dark are pouring, and there’ll be special hourly tappings, with NABC’s turn coming at 7:00 p.m. with Action! Pale Ale.
Sunday, September 21
New Albany IndieFest
At the 400 block of Bank Street in downtown New Albany
NABC closes LCBW in New Albany with New Albany IndieFest, an annual street fest and celebration of localism, sponsored by the New Albany First independent business association. The fest features local music on two stages, local business vendors and local arts & crafts. NABC and Dragon King’s Daughter will be pouring Indiana craft beers throughout the day. There’ll also be an Iron Chef competition at NABC’s Bank Street Brewhouse.
