LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- According to the Mayans, Dec. 21, 2012 should have marked the end of the world. Despite the hype, we survived and for some businesses, that calls for a celebration.

"Well, we're celebrating the end of the Mayan calendar,” Paul Grignon, part owner of Apocalypse Brew Works explained, “It was expected to be the end of the world, so we're going out with a bang!"

Despite the chill in the air, Apocalypse Brew Works held an End of the World party, even though there seemed to be some confusion about when the end will come.

One man filled us in on the debate between he and his friends, “There’s a discussion going on,” he said, “We’re trying to decide if Mayan time is on Central or Mountain Time, we don’t know for sure.”

Local businesses and patrons seem to be using the end as an excuse to indulge a little…or a lot. The Grind food truck was selling a “You’re Gonna Die Anyway” burger. Customers could wash that down with an End Of The World IPA.

New Albany was overrun with the undead. One zombie told us, “It's one of those things that's just so built up, and we already went through three in a year of the end of the world coming and it's just…it's ridiculous, so it's just taking a stab at it for what it's worth."

Apocalypse Brew Works will be holding a “We Survived” party on the 22 of December…assuming we survive. People are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items and pet food for donation to a local food bank.
