Shippingport Brewing Co. - Louisville, Kentucky

Shippingport! Louisville’s newest brewery opened in a part of town that’s outside the normal hangout areas, but we promised our friends that we’d go visit before we left town. Walking in the door, we immediately recognized each other as people who met a couple years ago, back when Amelia was a brewer at Against The Grain. Boss level shit, especially since she told us she was working on some ideas back then, and they came to fruition hard as hell! They’re still brand new and building and growing, but she’s straight killing shit. We also ran into Nick from Gordon Biersch here in town, who we also hadn’t seen in two fucking years.

Anywho, IPAs and bocks and kölsches and saisons and a new Belgian IPA were on tap, so we got to work putting them in our mouths in the thousand-degree sunshine. The IPA is super solid, think classic but not old style. I didn’t realize the bock is a helles bock, so I was thrown off a bit because it wasn’t what I expected. That said, it was really well done even though it’s not my favorite type of bockenator. Did not like the Belgian IPA. Not a style I like anyway, but it needs time to soften up as it was quite astringent imnsho. The absolute king favey fave was the Creepy Charlie saison, a collab with Monmik. Absolute butta, no joke. At 7%, it’s too high to smash all day, but I really wanted to do so.

The only downside here is that A) I didn’t try the kölsch like a dumbass, and B) we couldn’t stay long because we had plans. I’m mega stoked that Amelia has realized her dream and already has major fandom in the city. I wanna go back and stay all day, but that’ll have to wait until our glorious return to Louisville. Major love and happiness for you and your current and future success, Amelia! – Ryan
