One of NuLu’s first businesses is closing its doors for good at the end of October.
The Louisville Beer Store, 746 E. Market St., announced its closure in a Facebook post Thursday. The specialty craft beer store and bar will close on Halloween.
“October 31 will be our last day of business,” the post read. “Things in the world are too uncertain to speculate on the future of the store at this point, but we’re still hopeful that something will happen and we’ll be sure to update you as time goes on. Many thanks to all who has made the store possible over the past 11 years. We love you all!”
Louisville Beer Store carried many packaged goods from local breweries, including Against the Grain, Akasha Brewing, Gravely Brewing, Mile Wide Beer Co. and West Sixth Brewing, which recently opened its first Louisville location in NuLu.
Louisville Beer Store is owned by Lori Beck and Tyler Trotter, who also own Holy Grale and Gralehaus.
The closure joins several other notable NuLu closures due to COVID-19: Rye and To harvest both have closed permanently recently, although several new businesses have also opened in the area, including West Sixth Brewing, craftsmanship and Emmy square pizza.
Louisville Beer Store is accepting online orders for curbside pickup and delivery in select areas of Louisville. The store is open Monday to Thursday from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 1 p.m. to midnight and Sunday from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. To order or view available products, visit louisvillebeerstore.com.
