Kentucky brewery adding new Louisville facility

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky brewery plans to boost production by more than 400 percent with a new facility in Louisville.

Gov. Steve Beshear's office said Monday that Against the Grain Brewery is expanding with a new production and packaging facility in the Portland neighborhood in western Louisville. The addition will include a barrel brewhouse and a number of barrel fermenter tanks.

The expansion also will allow the company to eventually develop an area to include a tasting room and retail space.

The company expects to create 20 new jobs as a result of the expansion.

Its current location at Slugger Field produces about 1,500 barrels annual, primarily servicing the pub located at the ballpark.

The state has given preliminary approval for the company to receive performance-based tax incentives of up to $200,000.
