Anheuser-Busch has filed a lawsuit in Franklin County Circuit Court to speed along an appeal process for the company’s disputed application to self-distribute in Owensboro. AB is asking the court to order the Kentucky Alcoholic Beverage Control malt beverage administrator to immediately grant the company the license and rule on AB’s motion to dismiss appeals of the local ABC’s original approval.

A large brewery’s application to self-distribute has local brewers and distributors worried about the fate of distributorships and microbreweries in Owensboro and across the state. Several businesses and organizations have submitted protest letters to appeal the city’s Alcoholic Beverage Control Office approval of Anheuser-Busch InBev’s application for a license to distribute.

Update: Since this interview, tonight's beer dinner has sold out and has been moved to Kirchhoff's Deli. 

A beer dinner tonight kicks off Paducah's 4th Annual Oktoberfest, which benefits Maiden Alley Cinema. The Paducah Jazz Ensemble Polka Band, Legendary Shack Shakers, The Hooten Hallers, Solid Rock'it Boosters and Gideon's Rifle furnish the tunes tomorrow, along with beer and a spread of Bavarian food. Maiden Alley's Landee Bryant-Greene joins us on Sounds Good with the details.

A craft brewery is getting ready to open in Paris, Tennessee, by two friends producing beers in out-of-the-ordinary styles. On Sounds Good, Kate Lochte speaks with Randall Perry, the co-owner of Perrylodgic Brewing Company about how he and his business partner got started, where they're setting up shop and the types of beer they'll brew this fall.

Today on Sounds Good, we meet Todd Blume, the co-owner and brewer of Paducah Beer Werks, set to open this fall in Paducah. Located in the old Greyhound Bus station at 301 N. 4th Street, Blume is converting the space into a fully-functional craft brewery, while keeping some of the station aesthetic and artwork. He's in the discovery process of determining the palate of Paducah and aims to start with four beers, some seasonals, and eventually partnering with local restaurants. Hear the conversation:

PROST! The 3rd Annual Oktoberfest Weekend at Maiden Alley Cinema in Paducah begins with a Beer Dinner tomorrow night (10-18) at 7 at Kirchhoff's Deli prepared by Laura Duff's Pampered Palate. Hear Kate's conversation with Landee Bryant...

A proposal to freeze Tennessee's beer tax is headed to Gov. Bill Haslam for his consideration.

The measure was approved in the House Wednesday. The Senate passed it earlier this week.

Tennessee's beer taxes outstrip any other state's because the bulk of the levy is based on price rather than volume. The more a beer costs, the higher the taxes that must be paid to buy it.
