Located on the corner of East Main and Clay Streets, the door was on Clay, just to throw me off. Once inside, the tasting room was the only publicly accessible part of an expansive space that extended well back along Clay Street. I was fortunate enough to be allowed to see the brewhouse and warehouse areas, including all of the barrels being used for the Jefferson's Reserve Bourbon Barrel Stout. That opportunity probably would not be extended to everyone, however.

Fret not, since the tasting room also doubled as the "BBC Brewery Beer Museum" and sat as an homage to Falls City, Oertel's, and Fehr's ("It's always Fehr weather."). The short wood bar was covered in labels and coasters and then coated with a clear acrylic laminate. The same went for a center bar with swiveling Captain's chairs. It was impossible to look around without seeing some new, compelling piece of breweriana.

Eight (8) beers were available during my visit in December 2006: Bluegrass Gold; APA; Altbier; Nut Brown Ale; Dark Star Porter; Hell For Certain strong Belgian-style ale, named for a defunct coal-mining town in eastern KY; Barleywine; and Jefferson's Reserve Bourbon Barrel Stout. My pick was the APA, but I was told that a one-shot IPA was in the tanks at the time of my visit.

Visited at 8 on a Sunday. Rather busy but got a spot at the bar. 12 of their own on tap. Didn't get any food but it seemed like typical pub far. I had 2 of the flattest pints I've ever had at a brewery. And the beer was very mediocre. I'm not a fan

Nice place in downtown Louisville. Been several years since I was there but it is a great location.
