I have been to this place about 4 times now and it had never disapointed.

They always have ureal draft selections, most of their own, but also guest taps from around the world. I have had Mikeller 1000 IBU, Three Floyds BooGoop, etc.. on tap plus most of their high gravity beers. The service is great!! Will, the bartender, is always willing to give you nice samples of anything you want and shoot the shit about beer.

The atmosphere is great with the high ceilings and the brew tanks viewable in a nice window above.

The food is really good as well. I am a vegetarian, and their mushroom burger is epic, but they also have a ton of meat entrees that would be very nice if I ate meat. They have a ton of sauces that are homeade as well that are killer! The hot sauce is brutal.

By far the best all-a-round brewery in the Ville. (833 characters)

We stopped here with the family when we in town over the 4th of July after going to the Louisville Slugger Museum. We had tickets to the Bats game and a few hours to kill. They were not very busy when we arrived around 3:00. Very cool atmosphere. They had a chalkboard list of beers on tap on the wall. I really enjoyed the music because it included some Phish & Grateful Dead. We ordered the pub pretzel with cheese, beef jerky, and some fries. Beef jerky was excellent and ended up placing another order. I had two different IPA's. Both were pretty good. The beer was priced pretty good. I am going to be stopping her every time I am in Louisville! (661 characters)

I have only sat on the patio, never in the pub. Pretty neat place with a location right in downtown louisville attached to the minor league baseball stadium. The food is pretty solid and priced between fair to a little expensive. The beer is nice.. I had an oyster stout during my first visit and some IPA I cant remember.

This isnt the biggest deal to me since i'm pretty easy going, but my waitress splashed my stout all over my sleeve on a white shirt. It wasnt enough of a spill to warrant bringing me another beer, but I didnt like that I still had to pay for it. "Let me ruin your clothes and charge you for it." I even mentioned that it should have been free. It was one of my roommate's friends so I thought she would comply but still charged me the $5 for the beer. I didnt really care, but the right move in that situation was to comp my beer.

Its worth checking out. Nothing mind blowing and I dont make frequent visits despite living 10 minutes away. Their stuff is solid, not extraordinary. (1,007 characters)

The service was a little weak -- our appetizer arrived after we finished our main course -- but the food was very good and the IPA was excellent. (145 characters)
