Went to Against the Grain in Louisville with friends for the Bo and Luke Release on September 14th. I really enjoyed this place. Atmosphere is great, lots of energy in this place without being over bearing. A two story windowed tower brewing fermenters and mash kettles overlooks the bar. Very cool to see the brewers going in there to do their thing. Found that they had a great selection of delicious beers, and the food was very tasty as well. Service was a little on the weak side, but it was also incredibly busy that day. Overall a great place, and I look forward to visiting again on my next trip back to Louisville.

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.
