Summer Fun In Kentucky: The Mint Julep Craft Beer Tour #LoveLouisville

There are so many reasons to visit Louisville in the summer. From live music to street festivals and bourbon tours, here’s our guide to things to do on a summer vacation in Kentucky. During my Louisville we embarked on some memorable summer fun. Transportation with a brew guru was included each stop offered flights three stops were included our tour Against the Grain, Great Flood, Monnik. This tour departed from the Mint Julep Experiences Hub at Falls City Market in the Omni Louisville Hotel at 2 p.m. and returned at 6 p.m.

Against the Grain can be found in up to 43 states in the U.S., upwards of 25 countries around the world, and, of course, right here at home in Louisville, KY. The partners opened a three-vessel, 30-barrel brew house 20 blocks away from the pub in downtown Louisville. Against the Grain brews an array of diverse beers categorized by six main styles: Session, Hop, Whim, Malt, Dark, and Smoke.
