Stopped for dinner here while driving through town. It is in a small building in a trendy part of town. We were lucky to walk in on a Friday night and find an empty table. All the smokers were at tables outside so the pub itself was delightfully smoke free. Service was good and attentive.
Excellent menu with typical brewpub food plus some interesting dishes. I had the veggie burger with sweet potato fries, it was basically a thick falafel patty with grilled portabella on top, served on a bun with all the fixin's. Really delicious.
I drank the seasonal brew which the waitress tells me is a steam beer. It was good enough to have three. One of my companions told the waitress he liked brown ales and she offered him the IPA. Maybe the staff isn't too knowledgeable about the brews but we enjoyed ourselves anyway. He ended up getting the seasonal too BTW, which he enjoyed.
Nice dinner at a pretty decent brewpub. I guess I should have tried more beers but looking at the board nothing sounded as good as the one I was drinking so I sticked to it.

Small place, kind of a dive bar located in what seems to be a big time hipster neighborhood, brewery area is visible behind the bar. They had about 8 house beers on tap we tried them all and were not impressed. Most were ok, but nothing was especially good, just old school-sketchy brewpub stuff from back when almost no one would have known better. The food actually looked promising from what I saw but we didn't eat. Service was good, even though they were packed.
Bottom line: don't be fooled this place is seriously overrated by the locals. Don't bother unless you are looking to tick every beer in Louisville.
