LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A popular Louisville brewery hopes to open up a new venue.

Against the Grain has plans to move into Swiss Hall, a former Deputy Sheriff's Lodge which has been for sale for some time.

Plans call for a banquet hall that be used for private parties and concerts, a small bar with pub fare, an outdoor beer garden and a small microbrewery.

In order for that to happen, the property must be rezoned.

Against the Grain says they do not plan to add a large structure on the property and would mostly revamp the existing building into what they say would be a "community-enriching venue."

The project will be discussed at a neighborhood meeting coming up December 13 at 6 p.m. at Swiss Hall, 719 Lynn Street.

Swiss Hall is on Lynn Street near Eastern Parkway in the St. Joseph neighborhood, next to Zanzabar. That is right on the border of the Schnitzelburg neighborhood.

The original Against the Grain is at Slugger Field, on Main Street.
