Ate a quick dinner and couple of beers here on a Sunday night (we got into town late and they were the only place still open). Ate at one of the big picnic tables out on the sidewalk. They had a dozen beers on tap, a mix of their standard beers and some limited releases that I assumed were draft only. Beers that I drank onsite and bought cans of were pretty good. BBQ food menu, our food was pretty good.

Connected to the Louisville Slugger Museum and baseball field, which was unfortunately closed when I was there. Nice brewery and bar, which also has a decent selection of bourbons, which comes as no surprise in the heart of bourbon country. As it also has a restaurant, it can get be fairly bustling. The food in said restaurant is very good. Get the pork belly.

It ls located near a minor league ballpark and along with Angels Envy probably the biggest draw for the area. The inside is standard exposes duct work warehouse feel. Plenty of seats. The quality of the food and beer is above average. The service was very kind and attentive. There is plenty of different types of beer to choose from. The food menu is smoke meat leaning. The food is very good....brussel sprout by far was the best I had.

The smoke house is attached to the Louisville Ball Park. The place was not busy due to the off season, I bet it is hopping' on game day. The on tap selection was small when we were there in December 2017. One brew f each type of beer. The beer is go though. Stop by if in Louisville. Right downtown.

My wife and I visited this brewery on the Sunday night before Labor Day. The brewery is located in a baseball stadium on Main Street. Open, with plenty of room, it was busy when we arrived. We had a flight and enjoyed nearly all the beers. The place was decorated with unusual art, swag from the local soccer team and a few hidden references to 'Silance of the Lambs'. Worth a visit. We didn't have any food.

The beers here are pretty standard. They're well made, but not much to write home about. They get a lot of hype, but I think it's just good marketing. The food is pretty good, and it's definitely worth dropping by if you're going to a ball game.

Had an enjoyable time here. Service was great. Atmosphere was OK, a bit sterile for a brewery. Board with beers on tap was very hard to understand. Citra Ass Down was excellent. Will try food next time.

(#48 of 49) Our visit here was for lunch and to try the beers. The pub is located in the belly of a baseball stadium (with their own entrance off the front street through the patio), thus the pub area seemed cavernous. We sat at the bar and ordered a sampler flight of 6 beers (9 were available). All of them were brewed very well to style s that we graded them from a B-minus to a B-plus. We liked the BBA Belgian Imperial Stout the best.

The food was also very good so that we gave a B-plus grade based on our two selections. There is also a full bar along with wine also being offered here. The beers were great, and it would be an experience to come here for a beer and to take in a baseball game. Highly recommended.
