Louisville is a Great City

Louisville is a progressive, compassionate, and fun city. Many believe Louisville is the next mid-sized American city to ‘pop’– think Austin 10 years ago or Nashville 5 years ago. Louisville has an fantastic cost of living, a vibrant outdoor/active lifestyle and a packed schedule of annual events/festivals, many of which are held within 3-4 blocks of our location. Also, Louisville is an underserved (i.e. unsaturated) market from a craft beer production perspective which presents a great opportunity.

Butchertown is a GREAT Neighborhood

Butchertown is one of the hottest and fastest-growing neighborhoods in Louisville with a $200M, 35 acre soccer stadium district scheduled to open around March 2020. It’s one of the most inclusive, positive, and ‘craft-minded’ areas in the entire city. DO/LOVE/LIVE brewing, as envisioned, has an opportunity to be one of the anchor tenants in the neighborhood.
