A nice little place on Bardstown Road right down from Ear X-Tacy, so it can't be that bad. The place is tiny. There's almost as many tables outside on the sidewalk as inside! The atmosphere is nice, seems to have a few regulars hanging out. Nice and quiet too. The brewing equipment is all in sight behind the bar, and there's a nice mural of brewing equipment on one wall. As kmpitz2 said, there's a lot of cool vintage beer cans displayed in the men's bathroom. You'll have to ask Chris (clvand0) about the women's bathroom, but that's a story for another day. On to the beer!
They only have 5 house brews at a time. This time they were the APA, Mead, Nut Brown, Nitro Porter, and Cream Ale. They were out of the APA at the time though. They did have three guest beers, which were Avery IPA and Sierra Nevada's Harvest Ale and Oktoberfest. A growler of SN Harvest Ale made it's way home with me. I had all of their 4 available beers and the SN Oktoberfest in samples. 5 four-ounce samples were $4, not too shabby. They were all solid as well. The service was good, the server was very attentive. I didn't even open the menu, so I'm not sure about the food.
This is a nice little place, and definately somewhere I want to go back to in Louisville.

The atmosphere at the place had a kind of artsy vibe but we did not spend too long inside as we chose to sit outside and people watch.
Beers were properly served at the right temperature and in the proper glasses.
The service was good though we did go to the bar and get our beers from the bartender and did not have table service - we were served out beers quickly.
I did not have any food so I am not able to comment - I did not see any others getting food either while I was there. To be fair, we were there in the middle of the afternoon between lunch and dinner.
I thought the prices were slightly lower than other bars/brewpubs in the area. The beers were pretty good so I would consider it a good value.
