Beercentric brewpub. Food is a smokehouse fare, with a twist. Very good. Beers are world class and service is good. Its located downtown near most other beer destinations in Lville. Definitely a must see for any visitors looking to get a breath of KYs thriving beer culture.

This place was great and the people were friendly and the food was great. Spoke with one of the brewers cool guy talked for about 20 minutes. Bartender was super nice. The beers we tried were great especially the 70k. I loved the food had ribs and pork risotto. They were both great.

I absolutely had a wonderful time here, the flight beers were impressive. I am not a stout fan but I loved theirs. Everything had unique flavor. I will go back. The service was impeccable. The server was super friendly. The music was punk rock and we loved it. The food was absolutely delightful. There was even an outside patio to sit on.

In the old Browns location. Opened up two months ago. Staff is knowledgable on both food and beer! Two on cask! Tried all, all were above average if not exceptional. Hybrid belgian/IPA was a cool twist. Cashed 35k stout was great!

Really cool three story brewery located at Louisville Field. Found conflicting info on the web but it is no longer Browns. Nine of their own beers on tap. Swazi ALS, two cask plus the standards. Something for everyone.

We had aps and entrees, all were way above average and a great value!!

This place makes some excellent beef brisket! the overall feel of the place is relaxed and hip. The staff was pleasant with good knowledge of the breweries beers. The home made rootbeer is a must try but the available tap beers that can also be purchased by the bottle steal the show. If your in Louisville, this is a must stop place for some awesome food, beer and staff.

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.

A little nicer atmosphere than you often find in brewpubs. All of the beers are tasty, and different from the normal reds, hefs, etc that you find at most places. Definitely geared to the craft crowd.

Food is very, very good. I had the beer can chicken, and others in our party had the turkey burger and tacos. All looked good and all were spoken of highly.

Service is great. Attentive, but not overly slow. Was really impressed that the burger was overheard to be shared by two people and they took the time to plate each half separately without being asked to.

I second the recommendation of the Belgian IPA and Biere De Garde. Some of the names are a little odd and unappetizing (Who Sharted?) but that's a minor quibble. Well worth checking out.
