Stopped here before a Drive-By Truckers show in October 2011.

It was a very warm day for the fall season, so the atmosphere was very welcoming as we sat at the bar near the outside of the building. The place is nice & clean and located well.

From what I remember, the service was neither impressive or disastrous. There was no lasting impression either way.

For a brewpub that features locally brewed beer there was surprisingly few options on the tap list. I was a bit disappointed to see the only stronger option being their popular Bourbon Barrel Stout. Oh well.

We both enjoyed the burgers we ordered, and overall I think we'd be back when in town again.

(I'm writing this review two years after the fact so bear with me if I don't have a lot of detail in my review. )
My wife and I went here after visiting family for Thanksgiving. I grew up in Louisville as a kid and I was pleased to see how much the town got built up downtown.
The beer choices were good and the buffalo burger was great. I enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. Like one of the reviewers above, we were there for a late lunch and it wasn't too loud or quite. Our waitress was prompt and helpful. I enjoyed the Cardinal lager and bought a growler of it to take home.
I'm definitely going to check it out again next time I'm in town.

I hate writing less than positive reviews, but they can be useful so here goes. I've had bottled beers from Bluegrass before, none of which stood out, save for a bal aged stout which was soured and wretched. Nevertheless, was in town and the 4th st location was across the street from my hotel, so figured I'd give it a shot. I had just arrived in L'ville that day and had a beer at Against the Grain, L'ville Beer Store, and dinner at Holy Grale. Great start, with my excitement at the L'ville beer scene increasing with each stop.

Then came Bluegrass. My enthusiasm fell off a cliff. Tried the Homewrecker and American Pale Ale. Blah and blah. Especially the Homewrecker. This is a DIPA? Really? It's a sticky mess with no real hop profile--and this from a fresh batch on draft. The APA wasn't much better.

Anti-impressed and frankly bored.

We sat outdoors so only a portion of the atmosphere was in the control of BBC - there was traffic on the street and plenty of pedestrians going by. Unfortunately, we were down wind from another table where everyone was smoking cigars and it was less enjoyable than I desired.

The beers were properly served and tasted as I expected (and similar to other reviews).

The service at this BBC establishment was awful - had to be one of the worst servers I have ever had in all my years of going to bars/restaurants/brewpubs. It took well over 15 minutes just to get the menus and put in a drink order, then it took quite a while for the food to be delivered. Additionally, after the food was dropped off we did not see the server again for about 40 minutes - I got so desperate for another beer that I went to the bar and got one myself.

The selection was about what you would expect for a brewpub, I think they had about 10-12 different beers available on tap. They seemed to cover a decent array of styles, some regulars and some seasonal.

The food was decent for pub fare but not anything special.

Prices seemed to be about average for the area and I would consider it reasonable.
