I've now been to this bar several times. The beer selection has been very good each time, though I'm always surprised when the selection is tilted to a particular style. On my most recent visit, most of the IPAs were imperials. They did have a couple of regular IPAs, but the selection was definitely tilted to high alcohol content. A colleague had a flight of 4 different high alcohol IPAs and liked most of them. The selection included a number of local brews, including varieties from BBC, Apocalypse, and Country Boy.

I didn't try the food on any visit, but others in my group said it was good each time. The wings and pretzel certainly looked tasty.

I've been at this bar when it was practically empty, which made for easy quiet conversation with friends at a table. Most recently, it was packed for trivia night and was predictably loud. That made for more difficult conversation, of course, though we had a nice talk with the owner at the bar. The owner explained his beer choices, which are largely based on the ability to provide customers with unique selection.

They have a happy hour that ends at 7 pm.

Nice comfortable place on Bardstown in an eclectic area. Right beside the Cumberland brewery is a plus. The staff was very knowledgable and friendly. The beer selction was outstanding. Not miles of taps but the ones they had were great choices. This place is a good choice if you are in the area
