THE BEER BEAT: The Pearl Street Taphouse in downtown Jeffersonville.


I’m delighted for Kelly and Teri that Pearl Street Taphouse (that’s downtown Jeffersonville, folks, not downtown New Albany) has come out of the gate so strong. Now comes the long haul … and best wishes for it.

If all goes as planned, my inaugural visit to Pearl Street Taphouse will be on Wednesday during a projected pub crawl of Jeffersonville.

Pearl Street Taphouse slings good beer, and the food follows suit, by Kevin Gibson (Insider Louisville)

 … Along with the focus on craft beer, with 24 taps, there’s also a concise menu I found to be surprisingly tasty based on a couple of visits. It’s more than just beer at Pearl Street, even if the menu is a fairly simple thing with bar snacks, sandwiches and a couple of salads.

In a previous article at IL, Gibson shared the back story.

In a former home in downtown Jeffersonville — a structure that has survived fires and the 1937 flood — a new craft beer-themed bar, Pearl Street Taphouse, will open Saturday, Dec. 3.

The building, owned by Jeffersonville Main Street Inc., originally was two blocks away, but it is one of four homes moved and zoned for commercial use by the nonprofit revitalization organization. After Pearl Street Taphouse owners Kelly Conn and Teri Taylor looked for locations for their venture in the Highlands and in downtown New Albany, Conn one day decided to check out the building at 407 Pearl St.
