I visited BBC last summer and again about a month ago both times were during Lebowskifest. The atmosphere is very nice and most people there were very friendly and there for a good time which made the experience better. The service was decent. The waitress knew nothing about the beer which I hate but there were a few guys that brewed there that were wondering around the bar and they would stop by and talk about the beer, how its made, type of hops, etc... which I love. The only problem I see with this particular location is the food. Both times I have been there the food was not particularly good. However, it is right across the street from the Brown Hotel and if your hungry I would recommend going to eat there and get a famous Hot Brown SO good. The beer selection was good when I was there they had around 8 beers on tap and they were delicious. There APA was nice and hoppy but the standouts were their Amber Waves of Pain and their English Mild. Amber Waves is a double amber ale that is nice and strong but not overwhelmingly harsh. On the other side of the spectrum is their English Mild that is low alcohol but still flavorful. It is one of the better session beers I have had. Worth the stop for sure.

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.
