I'm a long time fan of BBC but this location in particular has gone down hill of late. All of the beers are flat except the occasional beer that is over-carbonated and the bartender has to pull three pints to get you one proper beer. Specialty beers have been unimaginative. There used to always be a bourbon barrel aged beer and a cask on Thursday, not anymore. I keep checking back, hoping things will change back to the good ole days of BBC, but it's getting worse and worse. With craft brew and microbrew on the rise in Louisville and all around the country, BBC can't keep calling it in.

A: BBC on Shelbyville Road has a spacious interior with a large bar, several televisions, an outdoor seating area, and shelves containing decorative glassware line the walls. The back of the building is full of wooden tables and generally appears to be more restaurant-like, save for the view of the fermenters. The place feels cozy and welcoming despite its size, and would be appropriate for all ages.

Q: The quality of offerings is generally rock solid.

S: I've been in here quite a few times recently and the service has always been outstanding. The bartenders are polite, friendly, and knowledgeable and the servers are prompt and courteous. I've never had any complaints with the service here.

S: The liquor selection is quite impressive and they tend to do some solid cocktails. The beer selection is limited to the brewery's own offerings, but they always seem to have virtually every major style represented. One great thing about this location is that the brewers have more freedom to experiment, so they generally have 4 or 5 brewpub exclusives that you can't get anywhere else.

F: The food can be hit or miss, but is generally good, solid American pub fare.

V: Prices for pints are great and their growler prices aren't too shabby either. For the most part food prices are more than reasonable.

O: BBC-East is a great spot in which to spend an afternoon. The beers are usually pretty good and so is the food. It's worth stopping by, especially if you don't mind a place that tends to fill up quickly.
