Mile Wide announces it will open late summer

Straight from the press release:

MileWide_Logo_1_PrimaryMile Wide Beer Co. is proud to announce that they will soon be joining the growing and vibrant Louisville craft beer scene. Led by a team of beer industry veterans, Mile Wide will aim to push the boundaries of what you’ve come to expect from American craft beer, while respecting the traditions established by all who have come before them.

The Mile Wide Beer Co. Brewery & Taproom will be located at 636 Barret Avenue. The building is part of the same facility that formerly housed The Silo Brewpub, which opened in 1992

The Brewery will be home to a fifteen barrel brewhouse, with an opening day capacity of 1,700 barrels per year. Mile Wide’s flagship beer will be a Belgian-style Witbier. They will also prominently feature the rotating Scavenger IPA series, which will highlight a variety of hops from all over the world. The rest of the lineup will be brewed to the whim of the founders. Pilot batches of a number of different styles are currently being brewed, with a focus on yeast and hop trials.

The Taproom will feature 12 taps, each one dedicated to Mile Wide Beers. Many of the beers on tap will be made available exclusively at the brewery. The Taproom will also feature a carefully selected list of wines by the glass & bottle, and a small selection of craft distilled spirits. Additionally, the Taproom will have a feature various forms of entertainment, including weekly trivia presented by Geeks Who Drink.

The Mile Wide Taproom will also have a Retail Shop, highlighted by the sale of 32 ounce Crowlers filled with Mile Wide beers. These single-use aluminum cans will hold fresh draft beer, kept safe from oxidation and light strike. Portable and recyclable, the Crowler is the best, safest and most environmentally friendly way to consume Mile Wide Beer outside of the Mile Wide Taproom.
