Terrapin Beer Company
Terrapin Beer Company
Terrapin Beer Company was born when two brewers met while working together at a microbrewery in Atlanta. Looking around at what other breweries in the SE were doing, Spike and John felt they could make a contribution. Realizing that anyone could make just another pale ale, brown ale or stout, Spike and John set their sights on crafting beers unlike any that were currently available in the SE.
Against the Grain
Against the GrainKentucky Heritage Brewery
With determination, a few fart jokes and a handful of investors, they opened the doors to Louisville’s first brewer-owned and operated brewery in 2011: Against the Grain Brewery and Smokehouse. The 15-barrel, Victorian style brewhouse and Southern-inspired smokehouse became a vessel for innovation. They invited color to the grayscale brewing culture and changed the way beer was viewed in Louisville. They brewed an array of diverse beers categorized by six main styles: Session, Hop, Whim, Malt, Dark, and Smoke. The categories ensured the beer would never be boring and they would never be bored.
