The crowds at Bock Fest on March 30 in Louisville’s NuLu won’t get your goat, but the festival might make you want to get a lovable baby goat and take it home.
The event features goat races, Kentucky-brewed bock beer and music, including from Louisville’s aptly named Hot Brown Smackdown. “Bock” means goat in German.
Bock is a rich, malty lager. Originally brewed by German monks, it’s been celebrated in Louisville for years, thanks in part to German immigrants. NuLu is a fitting host for the celebration, with Nanny Goat Strut and Billy Goat Strut among its historic corridors.
