Main Street Jeffersonville chili and beer, and a St. Matthews landmark changes hands.

Twelve years I’ve been making the trip to Bluegrass Brewing Company on Shelbyville Road, and though I’ve seen the Maier’s sign hundreds of times, not once have I stopped in to check the beer list and drink Lite beer over ice.

Cheers to Maier’s — 50 years of making memories, by Lindsay Sainlar (Louisville Eccentric Observer).

How many Maier’s customers can say the same thing, only in reverse? They've seen the BBC sign hundreds of times, but never strolled fifty yards away to see what beer really should be, i.e., NOT served over ice?

How will the O’Shea family change the institution of Maier's? Stay tuned for the answer.

Meanwhile, here’s a Thursday night tipple, courtesy of LEO’s Kevin Gibson (from this week’s edition):

Chili, beer tasting fundraiser.

Jeffersonville Main Street Inc., a non-profit downtown revitalization organization, will hold a fundraiser on Thursday, Nov. 17, at the Ramada Hotel, 700 W. Riverside Drive in Jeffersonville. Attendees can taste chili prepared by local restaurants and media personalities, and sample beers from Bluegrass Brewing Company (PC note -- I'm assuming this is the Main & Clay location) and Upland Brewing. There will be a silent auction and cash bar; tickets are $20 per person and can be purchased at a number of Jeffersonville locations. For more info, call 283-0301.
