Witness Atrium Brewing, which opened at 1154 Logan Street in Shelby Park on September 25, 2020. It was enough just to launch a brewing business in the middle of a pandemic, much less throw a huge grand opening party.

Fast forwarding to the present, and with two years to prepare, the time for that celebration is now. It starts today and lasts for the entire month of September, culminating with a shindig on Sunday, September 25.

“It’s crazy to think we are about to turn two,” said Atrium’s president and co-owner Princeton Hurst in a news release. “Atrium Brewing has been the most amazing adventure in my life since we opened our doors Sept 25, 2020. Words cannot express my level of appreciation and gratitude for the support of our neighborhood, patrons, distribution accounts and future beer fans. We celebrate another year because of you. We look forward to many years of bringing the most innovative and also true to style world class beers to the city of Louisville. Cheers to Louisville’s beer!”

Here are the bullet points:

  • Thursday, Sept. 1 (lasting all month): The Merryweather’s co-owner J.C. Dennison and Atrium head brewer Spencer Guy collaborate to create creative “beer-tails” combining Atrium’s ales with The Merryweather’s spirits and acumen for mixology.
  • Monday, Sept. 5 (lasting all month): New beer releases from Atrium begin rolling out. As an aside, Atrium is selecting the work of a yet-to-be-named local artist to appear on future cans.
  • Sunday, Sept. 25, Birthday Party: It’s 11:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m., featuring cupcakes to the first 75 celebrants from La Pana Bakery y Cafe, special birthday burgers at Daryk’s food truck on the back patio, limited one-day-only beer releases on draft, and neighborhood information from the Shelby Park Neighborhood Association, which will receive 10% of draft beer sales for the day.
