No single website or blog can cover the explosive craft beer scene in Kentucky and Southern Indiana (see how I didn’t use the term “Kentuckiana”?). That’s why LouisvilleBeer has gathered the RSS feeds of the best local beer news sites & blogs and put them in one central location. Maybe we’ll introduce our readers to yet another good source. Thanks to all who are part of this. Let’s keep Kentuckiana (D’oh!) beered!

The Potable Curmudgeon

The simple pleasures of beering locally.

I'm older now, and simple beer pleasures are the most meaningful to me. They tend to be encountered locally. It is my aim to get unplugged and explore some of them, slowly and thoughtfully.

Hoosier Beer Geek: A Beer Blog for Indiana, from Indianapolis

Hoosier Beer Geek was established in 2006 as an excuse for "The Knights of the Beer Roundtable" to drink and rate beer.

The Norwegian Blue

When Hoosier Beer Geek started in 2006, the beer community lacked a voice for the novices. Founder Chris Maples and I knew there were great beers t...
