At "Light beer? It’s from right here."

Kindly tolerate this reprise of a fondly remembered column from 2010.

Light beer? It’s from right here.

In 1909, the German-language Louisville Anzeigernewspaper praised Augustus Tusch of neighboring New Albany.
“Herr Tusch is a lager brewer of great repute whose cleanliness and quality is of the highest order, with barrels filled and delivered fresh within the astounding radius of ten blocks from his business address.”
It seems that Tusch was about to release a revolutionary new product. Who was this long forgotten New Albanian, and what was his plan to reorder the brewing universe?
