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.

Visited for the second time on 2015-03-07.

Had two very nice beers and a tasty lunch. Nice environment. All servers are Cicerone certified.

They brew some crazy good beers - 70k, Bo and Luke, Brett the Hop man - but they are rarely available. I typically find something on b the menu I'm pleased with.

The vibe is cool and staff are great.


This place has excellent food. Lots of smoked goodies.

I stopped in back in October and loved the overall feel of the place. The location is awesome as it backs up to Lousiville Slugger stadium. I can imagine this place is even cooler during baseball season.

The seating area is wide open and you get a great view of the three-story brewing setup from anywhere in the place. The staff was nice and well versed on the beer and food offerings, but our server was pulling double duty as the bartender and waitress. This really only delayed us when we were trying to settle up and leave.

The food was pretty good overall, but the beer on draft seemed to be so hit or miss. I've found this to be the case with all AtG beers. You never really know which beer, other than Bo&Luke, is going to be a home run.

Overall, it's a cool place that I'd definitely like to try to hit up again when I'm in the area. I just hope the randomness of the beer takes a turn for the better.

A first class operation with first class people, First Class Food and First Class Beer. The two things in Louisville one should not miss is ATG Brewery and Churchill Downs. Hint the pulled pork tacos were the bomb I can't wait tot try the brisket chili and the brisket burger!!!

This place was pretty quiet but it was Monday. Looks like a rather nice place, waitress was very nice did not eat any food. It is unique to sit at the bar and look at the tanks. The beer on tap was really average though. I was blown away when I had Rico Sauvin on tap somewhere else so I was pretty disappointed in the beer. They are really brewing unique beers there with smoked malts and Brett but the problem is they are really average.
