Frank Senn, Sr. was a prominent brewer in Louisville, KY. Mr. Senn was born in Germany and came to Louisville when he was just 15 years old to work at the Cooper’s Trade. He later learned the brewing business becoming interested in the old Boone Brewery. In 1874, he started a brewery of his own, Frank Senn Brewery. He eventually sold the brewery to his brothers, Martin & Casper, and in 1877 with Phillip Ackerman, organized the Senn & Ackerman Brewing Co., which later closed due to prohibition.

Today, Frank’s 4x great nephew Dustin Chalfant, along with James Hellmuth and Kristen Chalfant, ¬†renew the 140 year old family legacy with Senn Bierwerks.
