LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — A new craft beer bar is coming to the Highlands.

BarFly announced plans Tuesday to open a new HopCat location along Bardstown Road near Grinstead Drive.

The company says it will feature the state’s largest selection of craft beers on tap, a full menu, private event spaces and a deck. Louisville will feature at least 30 varieties of Kentucky-made beer on tap every day along with 100 other craft beers from around the world.

“Kentucky’s Bourbon-making heritage has helped make it an outstanding place for craft beer lovers,” said Mark Sellers, founder and CEO of HopCat and its parent company, BarFly Ventures. “When we decided to open in Louisville we wanted to create a hub that would draw craft beer lovers from the neighborhood and from around the world, showcasing the best beers made in Kentucky and around the world.”

The project will create about 150 new jobs. Officials say they plan to open the Louisville location sometime this summer at 1064 Bardstown Road — where the old Spindletop Draperies was located. It’s right next to the Highlands Tap Room.

There are also HopCat locations in Lexington and eight other cities.
