MILE WIDE BEER
It's been a long, crazy journey. This is how we got here.
IT'S ALREADY BEEN
A PRETTY WILD RIDE.
The story of Mile Wide Beer Co. begins with a few friends, a couple beers, and one big idea. Along the way there have been ups and downs, frustration, elation, and a near disaster or two. And we're just getting started! The pictures below are here to serve as a visual history for years to come. Be sure to follow along on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Located in a building that was once home to a biscuit factory as well as Louisville's first brewpub, our taproom and brewery are nestled behind a towering grain silo at 636 Barret Avenue.
Conveniently situated between Downtown and the Original Highlands, our large parking lot and proximity to public transportation make getting here a breeze.
Our taproom consists of multiple seating options and plenty of space to unwind. Up for a game? We have board games and a game room featuring a few classic arcade and pinball machines.
