#LCBW 2013 Sept. 13-21.
Here's the skinny & whats going on at AtG during LCBW 2013. Mark your calendars, this is gonna be a good one!
"The primary goal of Louisville Craft Beer Week (LCBW) is to promote our areaâ€™s thriving craft beer culture, enhancing beer knowledge and appreciation by sponsoring a 9-day (two weekend) festival that attracts beer tourism, fosters knowledge of our regional brewing heritage, and serves as a showcase for the Louisville areaâ€™s breweries, restaurants, pubs, caterers, retailers, entertainers, and other businesses with ties to the craft beer community." - www.louisvillebeer.com
All that said, we at Against The Grain Brewery, take craft beer seriously everyday. But who are we to snub an opportunity to throw a week long party?! So without further ado, here is our schedule for Louisville Craft Beer Week 2013...

Featuring an appearance of the General Lee car from The Dukes show, foot stompin' honky tonk sounds by the Solid Rock It Boosters, a your favorite Duke costume contest, food & drink specials, & of course the release of Kentucky's best beer... Bo & Luke! In addition, we will do a special release of 3 unique and exciting variations of Bo & Luke in a special 4-pack. There will only be 100 special packs made.

John Jensen of the world famous 'John's Hotdog Deli' is coming all the way from Copenhagen, DK to stuff his sausage in Kentucky and offer 'em up here at AtG! John's hotdog stand is renowned for being one of the best in the world and we were fortunate enough to lure him here to help us with our release of The Great Big Kentucky Sausage Fest!, the collaboration beer we brewed with Amager Bryghus located in Kastrup, DK. This big India Brown Ale was designed to wash down even the spiciest of dogs! Look for a special release of John's amazing sausages and mustard, paired with our Danish collab brew!
