Hop Atomica - Louisville, Kentucky by Hopsmash

Heyooo, new (to me) brewery! 🥰🥰🥰 Hop Atomica from Savannah recently opened a taproom here in Louisville, so we took the opportunity on a nice af day to have a drink or seven. 😵‍💫 The building is part of an old historic textile factory, and they’ve done an absolutely wonderful job with it. The beer garden and inside are really nice, and they serve up pizzas, artisanal cocktails, and more alongside their brews. 😋

West Coast IPA was yummy, as was the coffee stout. Here’s my beef, though: While both were tasty, the kölsch and Vienna lager were both turbid as hell and rather heavy. 🤔 Shouldn’t be that way. Nope. Never. I asked about it – unfiltered, maybe? – and our server went to ask someone. She came back with the answer that they’re hazy because they don’t want to take away from the flavor by making them clear. 🙃 If that’s their real answer, it’s either complete horseshit, woefully misguided, or poor brewing. I would love for someone at the brewery to chime in here. 🧐

Anyway, at least they tasted good?! Thing is, I absolutely will be back regardless, as the vibe and the other beers were damn good, and I need to try their cocktails and food. But, let’s all get on the same page when it comes to crispies. Thanks to Paul and Juan and everyone else…Welcome to the Lou, Hop Atomica! 🤗 – Ryan
