BBC's APA "Best of Louisville", and NABC to be at the awards bash on July 24.

If I’m not mistaken, the last time Louisville Magazine included a best beer of Louisville category in its annual critics’ choice “best of” issue (which includes reader selections) was 2003, when NABC’s Beak’s Best was chosen by editor Bruce Allar.

I know … we don’t brew Beak’s Best any longer, but I’ll come back to that tomorrow. Instead, know that the best beer category returned this year, and Bruce picked the classic BBC American Pale Ale (original brewmaster David Pierce’s Main & Clay version) as Louisville’s best. You’ll get no argument from me, because Dave’s APA remains my preferred session ale.

See: To have and to use five great beers.

Each year, Louisville Magazine partners with the Kentucky-Southeast Indiana Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society to hold a Best of Louisville Bash. This year’s is at the Mellwood Arts complex on Thursday, July 24, and I’m happy to note that NABC will be there with samples.

While Mellwood is fresh in your mind, don’t forget the movie, food and beer project that’s on the drawing board for the center:

Coming soon: Louisville Vanguard Cinema ... and good beer there, too.
