Bannerman Brewing Plans to Open April 1

louisville beer - bannerman brewingMore new Louisville beer is on the way: Bannerman Brewing is on track to open on or around April 1, according to co-owner Cory Riley.

Bannerman will operate with a seven-barrel system, and plans to have 12 taps with original brews. It won’t be a brewpub, but rather a tap room, similar to that of Apocalypse Brew Works. The total space is 4,000 square feet; Bannerman will be in the same Clifton neighborhood, as well. Currently, they are busy getting the space ready for operation.

“We’re working around the clock,” Riley said.

Riley has been home brewing for about 10 years, he said, mostly working with Belgian-style beers and sour ales, with a few English ales thrown in. Meanwhile, partner Jeff Pluhar is a vintner who has a lot of experience with barrel aging, which will help create some interesting and original creations.

The plan is to, like neighboring Apocalypse, bring in food trucks rather than build out a kitchen, create a menu and hire kitchen staff.

“Everybody wins that way,” Riley said.

And the Louisville beer scene just keeps getting bigger …
