MK Eagle wants you to get lit – at the library!
The program is a throwback to the Summer Reading Programs of your grade school days – but for adults. Aimed at encouraging young adults to get back in touch with their inner bibliophile, and rediscover the library, Get Lit® Lou gives you digital badges and the chance to win great prizes for reading books and attending library programs.
It would be hard not to notice the sleek, bright orange and black Copper & Kings sign that rises above their distillery when you’re driving down Story Avenue. Located in the middle of Butchertown’s growing community of local and small businesses, Copper & Kings is often also at the center of promoting that community and organizing neighborhood events.
Copper & Kings is primarily known for their brandy and absinthe, but equally as delicious is their non-alcoholic Butchertown Soda. You can find the Louisville-made craft sodas in the cold case at any of our stores.
While Butchertown Sodas have recognizable flavors, they are preservative-free, and use organic cane sugar and other high-quality ingredients that make them less syrupy, and more natural tasting than the average soft drink.
Heine Brothers’ is proud to partner with the Louisville Free Public Library (along with our friends at Against The Grain and 502 Fit Pass) on Get Lit Lou (short for Get Literary Louisville), LFPL’s new winter reading program for adults, encouraging everyone to “read responsibly”. From December through February, participants who read any three books and attend three programs – either at the Library or at Get Lit Lou-specific programs at partner businesses – will earn a prize and be entered in to drawings for bigger prizes.
Reading and coffee are better together! That’s why we’re getting lit – literature from the library, that is.
We’re kicking off Get Lit Louisville with the Louisville Free Public Library by including a reading list of our Baristas’ favorite books that you can check out from the library and enjoy all winter:

Forecastle Festival is nearly here, which means you might be gearing up for a music-filled day or weekend. Maybe you’ve even listened to your Forecastle playlist enough times you know the songs by heart.
At Heine Brothers’, Forecastle Festival time means more than a great lineup. It also marks the anniversary of an important partnership with Forecastle Foundation, the nonprofit that continues the original festival’s mission of environmental activism and conservation.
We were honored to host our friends and community partners from the Center for Women and Families at HB-Douglass Loop for their Denim Day press conference – bringing awareness and correcting misperceptions about sexual assault.
- Marta Miranda, CEO of the Center for Women and Families
- Amanda Corzine, RN – SANE Nurse at U of L Hospital
- Mike Mays, President & Co-owner of Heine Brothers’ Coffee
- David Yates, President of the Louisville Metro Council
- Patti Barron, a sexual assault survivor
- Lieutenant Carolyn Nunn, Commander of the Louisville Police Department’s Special Victims Unit
Denim Day began in Italy in 1999 when the Italian High Court overturned a rape conviction because the victim was wearing tight jeans; the court concluded that she must have helped take them off, implying consent. Women of the Italian legislature protested by wearing jeans the next day, and the observance of Denim Day worldwide had begun. Today, all around the world, organizations coordinate community-wide Denim Day events to show support of survivors, and to raise awareness of, and correct misperceptions about, sexual assault crimes.
Heine Brothers’ is proud to be a long time partner of the Center for Women and Families. We’d love to live in a world where sexual assault no longer exists – but until we get there, Heine Brothers’ will support The Center for Women & Families in the work they do preventing assault and supporting victims.
Our partnership with The Center for Women and Families (CFW&F) started more than 14 years ago, and it’s one we’re very proud of.
This month, as part of Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention Month, we’re highlighting their mission and the White Ribbon Campaign. (More information about how you can support Denim Day on Tuesday, April 26 and the continuing mission of CFW&F at the bottom of the post.
It’s hard to know where to begin when talking about the important role the Center plays in providing services and support to survivors of abuse and sexual assault. The center offers emergency shelter and medical services, transitional housing, counseling, legal services and advocacy to anyone who might need them – not just women and children. CFW&F serves clients not just in Louisville, but also in 8 other of the surrounding counties.
We met with our friend Marta Miranda, the center’s current President and CEO at the Center’s main facility, to talk about why the White Ribbon Campaign is so important, and about her personal journey to the Center for Women and Families.
