Went to Against the Grain in Louisville with friends for the Bo and Luke Release on September 14th. I really enjoyed this place. Atmosphere is great, lots of energy in this place without being over bearing. A two story windowed tower brewing fermenters and mash kettles overlooks the bar. Very cool to see the brewers going in there to do their thing. Found that they had a great selection of delicious beers, and the food was very tasty as well. Service was a little on the weak side, but it was also incredibly busy that day. Overall a great place, and I look forward to visiting again on my next trip back to Louisville. (623 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)
