Summer Beer Fest at Frazier History Museum takes over Main Street

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (DERBY CITY WEEKEND) - Frazier History Museum announced this year’s Summer Beer Fest will be bigger and better than ever.

Summer Beer Fest at Frazier returns on August 6, and this year, the museum will be blocking off a section of Main Street for the beer festival.

The museum said it will be the first beer festival to take place on Main Street in over 25 years.

“Some of you may remember between 1987 and 1996 the very popular Strassenfest was just down the street, right here on Main,” Frazier president and CEO Andy Treinen said in a release. “This year, we are blocking off the area between Eighth and Ninth and Main and Washington to throw a party right here on Main Street.”

Several Louisville-area distilleries are partnering with Frazier History Museum to offer a selection of beers and attractions. Partnerships include Shippingport Brewing Company, Fat Head’s Brewery, Great Lakes Brewing Company and more, according to the release.

Live music from Louisville quartet Squeezebot and Louisville group Nervous Melvin and the Mistakes is scheduled to take place live from a rooftop balcony.

Discount tickets are being offered from July 6 through July 16, where guests can buy three tickets and get the fourth ticket for free.
