First revealed in 2014, Lovelady Brewing Co. has finally debuted on Henderson's Water Street, bolstered by a strong pedigree for their brewing credentials and a long, local connection to the neighborhood.
Overseen by Richard Lovelady, former chief chief local brewer for Gordon Biersch, Lovelady Brewing sits inside a built-from-scratch 5,975-square-foot taproom with an outdoor covered patio. There is no smoking inside and no gaming, but guests can play shuffleboard, foosball on an antique table or corn hole on the outdoor patio.
Food options are being providing by a rotating roster of food truck who will park on the adjacent lot. Customers can also bring in food from local business on Water Street and dine while they drink. The Lovelady family has local roots dating back to the 1950s and plan to heavily engage in Henderson "charities, sporting groups and local events."
Promising "traditional and experimental beers," Lovelady aims to specialize in a handful of cultivated choices, rather than dozens of options. The current selection includes the 9th Island, a carmelized pineapple sour, Paradise City, a pilsner with pale ale hops and the HopAtomic, "a beer to satisfy any Hop Heads!" Crowlers and growlers are available for the beer aficionado on the go.
