Check the Louisville Beer Calendar for more information on the launch at Boombozz. I’m not the only one that just heard “It’s the beer calendar” in my head, am I? Anyways…here’s the press release:

Flat 12 Bierwerks has partnered with River City Distributing to launch their craft beer in Louisville

Indianapolis, IN – Flat 12 Bierwerks, an Indianapolis based craft brewery, is expanding its distribution into Kentucky. River City Distributing, a beverage distributor based in Louisville, Kentucky, will help launch and represent the product in the Louisville area.

“This is a natural step across the Ohio River for Flat 12. We’ve had a good relationship with the southern part of our state and we’re happy to now extend that to Louisville,” said Rob Caputo, Flat 12’s Co-Founder and Director of Brewing Operations.

The Louisville distribution lineup includes: Half Cycle IPA, Pogue’s Run Porter and a rotation of seasonals and specialties in draft and bottles. Flat12 Bierwerks seasonal line-up includes: Lacto-Matic Milk Stout(winter), Nunmoere Black-an American Black Ale (spring), Cucumber Kölsch (summer) and Flat Jack Pumpkin Ale(fall).   

Flat 12 Bierwerks goes beyond distributing its beers in a region to being active participants within the communities in which it distributes, including support of environmental initiatives, arts, culture, sport/athletic activities and more. “We’re looking forward to being part of the Louisville craft beer scene and the many facets of Louisville life that it complements,” said Co-Founder/CEO Sean O’Connor 

Founded in 2010, Flat 12 Bierwerks is a production craft brewery based in Indianapolis, Indiana. Co-Founder and Head Brewer, Rob Caputo blends craft with technical expertise to produce an outstanding line-up of beers. The name Flat 12 is derived from the flathead 12-cylinder engine, a powerful beast of an engine, emblematic of Indianapolis’ turn of the century rise as an automotive manufacturing and motorsports capital. The “Bierwerks” Germanic spelling offers a nod to the strong German cultural influence, felt in and around the historic Holy Cross neighborhood Flat12 calls home. For more information: flat12.me
