LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) --  Bluegrass Brewing Co. owner Pat Hagan plans to open a “Craft House Restaurant and Pub” with outdoor seating on Goss Avenue in Germantown, according to documents filed with Louisville Metro Planning and Design.

The craft house is planned in a nondescript office building at 1030 Goss Avenue. Louisville real estate development company Underhill Associates bought the building about a year ago and uses it as a corporate office.

Hagan, who did not return a call for comment, is also a co-owner of the Craft House in Crescent Hill, and the Goss Avenue pub will be organized under the same company -- Craft House LLC at 2636 Frankfort Avenue, according to the planning application, filed Nov. 24.

The craft house needs a conditional use permit from the city to serve alcohol in a planned outdoor patio along Goss Avenue.

“The owners of Craft House, through years of experience owning and operating Bluegrass Brewing Company restaurants in Louisville, strongly believe that the proposed outdoor patio will be a welcome addition to the neighborhood and will create a greater sense of place within the community,” according to a letter of explanation filed with the application.

Colin Underhill, a partner with Underhill Associates, said if approvals are obtained, the Craft House group will buy the building from the Underhills and start work early next year.

The proposed craft house is just down the street from Underhill’s Germantown Mill Lofts, an upscale apartment development.

"Having a Craft House in the immediate area will do nothing but further our project and further the area, and continue to grow a very happening area in town," Underhill said.
