The Jeffersontown Summer Craft Beer Fest — more familiarly known as the JTown Beer Fest — is set to return for its eighth year. Slated for 4 to 8 p.m. July 17, the festival celebrates craft beer in Jeffersontown. Although the festival did not happen in 2020, the enthusiasm for craft beer and local entertainment remains strong in Jeffersontown.
The JTown Beer Fest was started in 2014 as a partnership between Chamber Jeffersontown and HB Productions. In the last seven years, the event has expanded to more than double the space and increased attendance to more than 2,000 friends, family, beer lovers and Jeffersontown socialites.
Jeffersontown continues to be a rising star in the Louisville community for entertainment and dining excellence. Continuing popular mainstays include 3rd Turn Brewery and RecBar. New restaurants and bars such as Drake’s and Club K-9 are poised to make their mark on Jeffersontown in the very near future, not to mention all of the other new establishments like Royals, Feast, The J-Town Beach, Karems and others that have successfully opened or transformed their business in recent years.
One common thread amongst these destinations is craft beer. It’s a big part of this entrepreneurial movement happening in Jeffersontown and we love sharing in that experience. The Jeffersontown Chamber is focused on celebrating these local venues and supporting their growth. Craft beer is a big part of almost everything HB Productions does and that’s no accident. Owners Tisha Gainey and Trevor Cravens share a passion for hops, malt and yeast drinks and it has helped shape their business.
The JTown Beer Fest is set for 4 to 8 p.m. July 17 in downtown Jeffersontown. You’ll find more information at jtownbeerfest.com.
