Trellis Brewing Receives Construction Permit Approvals
New Brewery Breaks Ground in Smoketown Neighborhood
August 28, 2023 (Louisville, KY) - The owners of Trellis Brewing are excited to announce that they have received all necessary construction permit approvals and have begun construction for its new 7,500-square-foot brewery and taproom located in the redeveloped Merchant’s Ice Tower property at 827 Logan Street in the Smoketown neighborhood. The brewery will be able to brew 1,000 barrels annually and will feature indoor seating for approximately 100 customers, with additional seating in a large community space outdoors.
“We look forward to being a welcoming space for everyone from beer nerd to beer curious - and we'll have plenty of options for non-beer drinkers as well,” said Kyle Jahn, Trellis Brewing co-founder. “Getting the construction approvals was the final step we needed before moving forward with the brewery. And now we’re one step closer to enjoying a beverage there.”
The 10-barrel brewhouse will focus on grain-forward, clean lagers to highlight the unique flavor of Kentucky-grown barley, rye, and wheat through a partnership with South Fork Malthouse (Cynthiana, KY), along with other modern IPAs and stouts. Trellis also plans to begin a barrel program for fermenting and aging a variety of mixed fermentation styles.
"We are thrilled to bring our vision of a neighborhood brewery to life in Smoketown," said co-founder Ryan Reed. "That vision also includes twenty new jobs for the neighborhood - we can't wait to share our passion for great beer with the community.”
Construction has begun and Trellis Brewing is expected to open its doors to the public in winter 2023. Follow the journey on social media at @trellisbrewing.
