This is only Wednesday, and already today this is Insider Louisville’s second beer post, following Steve Coomes’ post this morning about Kentucky’s brew boom.


(It’s all those Medicaid stories we’ve been posting that led us to drink.)

Anyway, the Holy Grale taproom is having a special Anstitch Keg Tapping Party Friday, Feb. 10 for Löwenbräu Buttenheim Ungespundetes Lagerbier.

The beer aficionados among our readers say this is a big deal.

Here’s from the release:

Stop by this Friday for a fresh pint of this rare Franconian Kellerbier Beer. Braueri Löwenbräu is located in the middle of Franconia, between Bamberg and Nurmberg, Germany. This brewery has been a family owned and operated company since 1880. Each one of these generations heading the Löwenbräu Buttenheim enterprise has livedup to its responsibility in its own special way and continues doing so every day. Brewing a natural beer is one of the pillars of Löwenbräu’s success.

The tasting starts at 4 p.m., and  there will be $5 pints until the beer is gone, according to the Holy Grale/Louisville Beer Store website.

You can RSVP on Facebook here.

The Holy Grale is at 1034 Bardstown Rd. in the Highlands.

Oh, and you thought we were going to end this post without telling you what a “anstitch” keg is … please. It’s a German-style gravity keg, unlike the pressurized kegs in the States.
