The Steurer Story: A History Of Louisville Beer

The Steurer Story: A History Of Louisville Beer

We just love it when our local business associates use their products to tell a story! In this case, the lovely leather workers at Steurer and Co. used the story of their own ancester, Jacob Steurer, to inspire a leather beer koozie.

The most luxurious koozie you will ever own is named for our ancestor, Jacob Steurer, who came to America in 1855 from Kork bei Kehl in Baden, Germany.  He founded his first brewery in 1866 in the Highlands and moved to a second site at 1372 Story Avenue, located in the Butchertown neighborhood of Louisville, KY.  At his height, he produced as much as 6,000 barrels of common beer a year.

“The tradition of small batch and craft beer continues in Louisville area today.  As of 2017, there were over 30 craft brewers with seven more to open in 2018.”

You can learn more about the Steurers and their products at their website.
