For Release: 04/13/15 1:48 PM
Louisville Life spotlights a unique wine-beer partnership that has brought an iconic Louisville beer back to life in a new episode premiering Saturday, May 9 at 5:30/4:30 pm on KET2 and Sunday, May 10 at 10/9 am on KET. The program also features the Schrodt Art Studio and the Waterfront Botanical Gardens.
First, the program spotlights the unique partnership between Old 502 Winery and Falls City Brewing, which are sharing building space on Louisville’s 10th Street in a collaboration that has fostered a rebirth for the storied beer brewing label. The program talks with Logan Leet, owner of Old 502 Winery, and David Hawkins, Falls City Brewing’s sales manager, to learn more about their unconventional wine-beer partnership.
Next, Louisville Life talks with Judy Warren, owner of the Schrodt Art Studio, based in Louisville’s DuPont neighborhood. Founded in 1975 by Judy’s mother, Mary Louise Schrodt, today the art studio carries on in its original mission: instructing and encouraging fledgling painters at all skill levels.
The “ThrowBack Louisville” segment focuses on the Southern Exposition, the celebrated Louisville-based cultural event which was opened on August 1, 1883, by then-President Chester Arthur and continued on through 1887. Visitors to the exposition could enjoy concerts, lectures, theatrical performances and weekly fireworks displays.
Then, host Candyce Clifft sits down with Bob Hill, a board member with Botanica and owner of Hidden Hill Nursery. Hill talks about Botanica’s long-term vision of creating the Waterfront Botanical Gardens, a conservatory and botanical gardens along the city’s riverfront, which would educate and enlighten visitors about the beauty of the natural world.
