Brewing was a major industry in the early years of the River City. With the resurrection of our beloved Falls City and several outstanding microbreweries, Louisville seems to be hitting its stride once again.
Nestled in the midst of the grand homes of the historic Cherokee Triangle neighborhood, Willow Park will serve as the epicenter for the Louisville Beer Run and craft beer festival. The run will take you to the top of Baringer Hill and along the famous Cherokee Park Scenic Loop, known for its thick woodlands and rolling hills. In the heart of the Highlands - and with the excitement of Bardstown Road only a block away - this Beer Run will be a perfect warm up to a great summer evening of fun!
Early Bird $39 - until 5.31.12 / Regular $44 - until 6.30.12 / Late $49 - until race time

Louisville's Frederick Law Olmsted Parks are our health clubs and art studios, our outdoor classrooms, sports facilities and family retreats. They play a vital role in protecting the city's health and well-being. The parks enhance Louisville's quality of life.
Without attention and support, the value this great asset will decline. It takes hard work, funding, and community interest to preserve this resource. Olmsted Parks Conservancy, non-profit organization, leads the movement to enhance and restore these resources, and invites the community to realize its stake in the future of our Frederick Law Olmsted Parks.
