Could not get waited on. Beer disappointing and overpriced. Not a good experience.

The service was a little weak -- our appetizer arrived after we finished our main course -- but the food was very good and the IPA was excellent.

Visited for the second time on 2015-03-07.

Had two very nice beers and a tasty lunch. Nice environment. All servers are Cicerone certified.

They brew some crazy good beers - 70k, Bo and Luke, Brett the Hop man - but they are rarely available. I typically find something on b the menu I'm pleased with.

The vibe is cool and staff are great.


This place has excellent food. Lots of smoked goodies.

I stopped in back in October and loved the overall feel of the place. The location is awesome as it backs up to Lousiville Slugger stadium. I can imagine this place is even cooler during baseball season.

The seating area is wide open and you get a great view of the three-story brewing setup from anywhere in the place. The staff was nice and well versed on the beer and food offerings, but our server was pulling double duty as the bartender and waitress. This really only delayed us when we were trying to settle up and leave.

The food was pretty good overall, but the beer on draft seemed to be so hit or miss. I've found this to be the case with all AtG beers. You never really know which beer, other than Bo&Luke, is going to be a home run.

Overall, it's a cool place that I'd definitely like to try to hit up again when I'm in the area. I just hope the randomness of the beer takes a turn for the better.

Great beer, but uninspired food.
