    The only thing that remotely makes sense would be the old Hillcrest site. Currently has a Subway and a lot of empty space besides that, as well as a basement. Across from HayLoft Tavern. That site would make sense for a fall opening and it is available cheap

    I just assumed that spot would be a CVS Pharmacy; they usually pop up close to Walgreens' locations.

    A friend posted on FB this morning that he received an email saying that they are planning on putting this in the old Jeff Wyler dealership on US 27 in Alexandria. There is a gymnastics studio currently occupying the space.

    That should be a pretty decent location. Get a nice sign and get some visibility from 27.

    Absolute cheers to that idea. Ive said for a while that it seemed like an awesome brewery location.

    Not thrilled about the move to make a Cracker Barrel there.

    They did a collaboration with Bad Tom Smith brewing, a NE IPA called Hazy River, which I thought was very tasty.

    Rocking In The Free World — Alexandria Brewing Company

    Rocking In The Free World
    December 12, 2017 / Andy Reynolds
    As always, I feel like I do not do this enough. First and foremost, we want to thank everyone who was able to make it out to our open house. The turn out was much higher than we expected. It is nice to know that so many people wanted to see what we are up to inside the old Skip N Flip. If you were one of the people that stopped in, we have made some serious improvements since your visit. Last week we put our walk-in cooler up, clearing away most of the stuff that was taking up the floor space in the back. We have also finished painting, put new doors on the restrooms, hung our permanent sign, and, as of yesterday, started the concrete polishing and epoxy coat of back overflow and production areas.

    Yesterday we were able to break away from the construction and head down to Bardstown, KY to visit our new friends at Willett Distilling. Willett was kind enough to give us a barrel. The Kentucky Guild of Brewers is hosting its annual Craft Bash in Louisville, KY this coming June. The plan for these barrels is for the members of the K.G.B. to brew a beer and age it in the Willett barrel, and bring one sixtel of it for the barrel aged tent at the Craft Bash. Plus we will all have another sixtel at Hopcat in Lexington for a tap takeover a week later. While we aren’t allowed to fill this barrel until we are licensed, we are focused on keeping it wet and ready to go. Our first thought with this barrel is to put our Brothers in Arms Russian imperial stout in it, but we have pledged to donate the proceeds of this beer to veteran-based charities. By having to distribute a portion of this batch, we will be unable to do so. Our next thought is to make the same beer and call it something else, but in all honesty, I feel like that is not proper branding. My decision is that this version will just be labeled “Brothers In Arms – Willett.” Since we will have some sales in our taproom of it after the Craft Bash, we will dedicate $1 of every glass poured to Deep Sea Valkyries. Deep Sea Valkyries is a veteran-based, veteran ran charity that focuses on healing the unseen wounds of war. They take veterans on several marine based recreational activities while also working in group counseling sessions. We do hope to have an Elmer T. Lee and a Knob Creek 15 Year of Brothers In Arms ready for opening. We will keep them separate for comparison and blend the two as well. With these three at opening, 100% of the proceeds will go to Deep Sea Valkyries and the Wounded Warrior Project.

    Along these lines, we are partnering with a couple other charities and plan to have a charity beer on draft at all times. With these beers, we plan on $1 of every glass poured going to that charity. One of the first charities will be the Center for Courageous Kids in Scottsville, KY. I was fortunate enough to visit their facilities in September. It is a great place for kids with some serious conditions to get away from their routine and have some fun with kids, get outdoors, go bowling, and do things they never thought they would be able to do. I know that their pinball machine was down. So, at least part of what I would like to do is get together with our friends from Walton’s Games and get it fixed. With the remaining amount, we can sponsor a few kids to attend the camp. We have a few other charities and we will be sharing more information about them as we get closer to their brew dates. In the meantime, check out, the Center for Courageous Kids’ website.

    On a different note, we have found someone to run the restaurant portion of the brewery. Four Mile Pig will be our restaurant tenant. If you are from out here, you know their food is amazing. Robert Viox and his team make some killer BBQ and we can’t wait to see what he is able to whip up for Alexandria Brewing Company.

    We are getting closer and closer to the opening date! We look forward to seeing you all inside our taproom in early March. Cheers!

    Alexandria Brewing will pour beer from 16 taps in 218

    ALEXANDRIA – A new craft beer brewery and tasting room will begin pouring in southern Campbell County in March 2018.

    Iraq War veteran Andy Reyolds and his business partner Brad Martin will have 16 beers on tap when they open Alexandria Brewing at 7926 U.S. 27, Alexandria.

    A pinball machine and retro arcade games will pair with craft beer and barbecue-style cuisine inside the tasting room. Alexandria Brewing is renovating 7,900 square feet in the Jolly Towne Centre shops.

    A second-floor mezzanine will be for private parties, Reynolds said. An outdoor beer garden area will be built.

    "We're set up to have 16 taps, and 10 of them will be our beers at any given time," he said.

    Signature Alexandria Brewing offerings will include a Belgian style wit, a Belgian Trappist-style tripel, a Trappist-style quad and a Berlinerweiss. A couple of India Pale Ale varieties will usually be on tap too, Reynolds said.

    Reynolds' homage to his U.S. Army service will typically be served once a year as one of six rotating seasonal releases.

    “Brothers In Arms,” a Russian imperial stout, was initially brewed six years ago with seven of Reynolds’ U.S. Army buddies in Southgate, Kentucky. Reynolds served in Iraq in 2006 and 2007.

    Campbell County-based food truck Four Mile Pig will operate as a separate business inside the tasting room to pair with craft beers.

    Pinball and arcade games on a "cocktail machine" will be available for play including retro games Pac-Man, Centipede, and Donkey Kong.

    "We’re shooting for a March opening," Reynolds said.

    I'm looking forward to the opening. Pictures they've been posting on social media look very nice.

    I hope they have Miller Lite on one of those other 6 taps. If not, they will be a one and done for me. I love how these places are moving further south, closer to my homestead.
