Beer Buzz: Flat 12 opens in Jeffersonville



Flat12 Bierwerks expansion to downtown Jeffersonville Grand Opening Celebration is Dec. 6 from 11 a.m.-10 p.m. at 130 W. Riverside Dr. The event is free, and pints, growler fills and food will be available for purchase.

The house beer list will feature current Flat12 favorites, unique brews such as Spirit Mover Saison, Joe Brahma Coffee Brown Ale, Kattenstoet Belgian Pale and taproom-only offerings.

"We want to make the Jeffersonville location truly unique by offering an exclusive lineup of beers. Look for a host of one-off beers on the rotating taps that will only be available at the Jeff taproom," said Rob Caputo, Director of Brewery Operations.

"Situated in scenic downtown Jeffersonville just blocks away from the Big Four Bridge, the rustic, yet polished taproom features a bar with 32 taps, ample table seating, large-screen televisions for sporting events, and a spacious deck overlooking the Ohio River, outfitted with heaters and sidewalls for year-round use. With up-cycled keg pendant lights and reclaimed wooden walls offering a warm rustic feel, and contemporary touches giving it an industrial edge, the overall atmosphere is laid-back and inviting," said Sean O'Connor, co-founder and president of Flat12. After distributing to bars, restaurants and stores along Ohio River, "we saw the excitement building in Jeffersonville and we're happy to be the newest member of the growing Kentuckiana community."
