When it comes to drinks and spirits, everyone knows that Louisville is best known for its delicious bourbon, but the city is also home to some of the best breweries and microbreweries around. Our very own Tad Thomas recently had the pleasure of touring one such brewery– Mile Wide Beer Co. in Louisville. We couldn’t pass up the opportunity to talk about his experience for Consuming Louisville.

Mile Wide Beer Co. is a brewery and taproom located in between Highlands and downtown Louisville, in a building that was once home to Louisville’s first brewpub. All of Mile Wide’s beer is brewed right on the premises and served on tap in bars and restaurants across Kentucky. The brewery magic happens in a production space surrounded with glass– for your viewing pleasure– in a system capable of brewing 3,800 pints of beer at a time.

Olympic Gymnast Aly Raisman Sues Over Nassar Abuse

Published on Mar 13, 2018 at 3:03 pm in Title IX.

In the ongoing legal cases against Larry Nassar, former sports physician for the U.S. gymnastics team who was served with more than 150 lawsuits for sexual crimes he committed, another gymnast has come forward with a lawsuit. Gold medal Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman filed a lawsuit in California state court earlier this month alleging USA Gymnastics and the U.S. Olympic Committee failed to protect her and other athletes from Nassar’s misconduct.

The lawsuit claims that the U.S. Olympic Committee and USA Gymnastics looked the other way when Nassar sexually harassed and abused Raisman on dozens of occasions under the guise of medical treatment. Raisman says that the organizations shielded Nassar from the investigations and allegations that surrounded Nassar’s history and did not take the proper actions to keep the gymnasts safe.
