It was about 2:30 on a Tuesday. We were already two hours behind schedule and in desperate need of alcohol, so thank god this only two minutes off of 65. It was sunny and chilly--one of those tease days in the early spring--and downtown Louisville was eerily quiet.

The bar is easy to miss, seeing as it's down in a basement. There was a cheap parking right next door. Inside, the bar's real basementy--low ceiling, exposed ductwork, pleasantly chilly. The crowd was small and laid back; there was a guy who looked like Will Oldham if Will Oldham really got his shit together.

The staff were very much on top of things. Like, I think there were two employees for every customer. The bartender was friendly and treated me like an adult--when I asked when a beer was, he told me the style. He didn't say "it's kind of like Guinness;" he said "it's an altbier." He might have just assumed that anybody drinking early on a weekday probably knew a thing or two about beer. Hmm... maybe that's a sign of a problem. Anyway, I really appreciated it.

In spite of the relaxed atmosphere, the place still felt kinda touristy. Basement bars usually have more of a worn-in feel, but this was a little too well polished and tightly run. The faucets were fancy, the napkins were made out of cloth, and the bar had several plasma screens hanging right above it. Granted, there's nothing *wrong* with being a little touristy--some people might even prefer it--but I generally like bars that feel more comfortable.

The beers were solid, and there were a few offerings that BBC doesn't bottle (or at least I've never seen them). The food was middle of the road pub fare, but it was reasonably priced and the selection was wide.

Nice place in downtown Louisville. Been several years since I was there but it is a great location.

I live in Louisville and go to New Albanian Brewery across the river for local beer and recently to Against The Grain Brewery which just opened here in Louisville. That pretty much says it all when it comes to BBC for me. Everytime I have had they're beer I was greatly underwhelmed and everytime I have been to the Main St. location the service was terrible and the servers extremely rude and obnoxious like they were put out when I asked for something. One instance literally sent me to the conclusion that I had to write this review. They're motto is don't buy beer from strangers, I say don't buy beer from acquainted ignorance
