Oct. 2: What's Brewing in Louisville

Louisville is known as a great city for bourbon, but our craft brewery scene is just as vibrant. It’s about to get even better with the addition of West Sixth Brewing, a Lexington company that’s turning a 120-year-old carriage house in NuLu into a 9,000-sqaure-foot brewery, barrel-aging warehouse and taproom. The eagerly anticipated location at 821 E. Market St. is slated to open in early 2020.

Join Venture Connectors on Wednesday, Oct. 2, to hear from West Sixth’s Co-Founder Ben Self, who will share the story behind the company’s success and its $2 million expansion in Louisville. Click here to register.

West Sixth Brewing was founded in 2012. It brews, cans and bottles craft beer out of a hundred-year-old bakery called the Bread Box in Lexington and at a 120-acre-farm in Franklin County. Prior to co-founding West Sixth, Self founded Blue State Digital, an online technology agency focused on online engagement in Democratic politics. He has a master's degree in electrical engineering and computer science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and lives in Lexington with his wife and two children.
