    Not sure I'd want to go to this contest. Who in their right mind would want to visit Lousiville! Is it twinned with somewhere up north!!?

    Noticed this error on 4BR also. They have had many typographical errors recently.

    I'm sure it is but the article reads "Lousiville" or, as I read it, "Lousy-ville". I'm sure it isn't lousy at all and I'm sure the beer is as good as anywhere else in the US.

    Just seemed an unfortunate typo.

    Can you explain Indiana University in Kentucky, sounds like an oxymoron but I'm sure there's a simple explanation.
