It has taken the company 16 months to fully renovate the building that will house the bar. When it opens in two to three weeks, it will serve beer, bourbon, and wine.

Wade Mattingly, owner of the brewery, said he was drawn to the Shelbyville area when he was looking for a place to expand. “We got to a point where we felt comfortable where we were and we wanted to grow,” Mattingly said. “We just naturally fell in love with Shelbyville.”

The bar will carry 8 to 10 Old Louisville Brewery taps and also 8 to 10 regional, guest taps.

“It’s a small town kind of atmosphere, but it is a nice-sized town,” Mattingly said. “We couldn’t be happier to find a building down here on Main Street.”
