Louisville’s Bock Fest marches to ‘bleat’ of its own

by
Bock Fest

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.
