The bluegrass brewery brewpub is a great place to drink, eat, and relax. They have about 8-10 tap selections that are all freshly made and taste great. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the beer. You can find many different brews from a pilsner, to a hoppy APA, a dark rich porter, a spicy belgian style ale, and seasonal favorites like the Hoppy Hefe for the summer. The food is also good, and fairly reasonably priced. The sandwiches are good, and the garlic wedge fries are awesome! You can also get growlers to go, which is great. Whenever in the Louisville area, be sure to check this place out!

Had a great time, food was delicious, and the Berliner Weisse was suprisingly good, being that i ususally am not too big on BBC's offerings. I was impressed.

The wife and I stopped by after visiting the Louisville slugger museum. Great Beers! I especially enjoyed the Bourbon barrel stout.

Stopping in with my family for lunch during a shopping trip. The atmosphere is as much a sports bar as a brew pub. College football was playing on several big screen TVs throughout the place. We sat in the indoor dining area. You can see the on site brewery from this area. There is also a large bar area as well as a large outdoor (covered) section. I could picture myself sitting in the outdoor area on a nice day trying one of everything.

There were a number of BBC beers available. I started with a sampler of 7 (IPA, APA, Wheat, Porter, Alt Bier, Bourbon Barrel Stout and Malt Liquor (yes, craft malt liquor). All the beers are very good. Some may complain that some are served too cold however it's a lot easier to let a beer warm than to cool it! My wife chose a Dark Star Porter and I had a Alt Beer and American Wheat. At 4.50/pint they are quite reasonable. You can also get half-pints for 2.75. Growler fills area available and we took home one of the Dark Star Porter and the "Urban Nomad" Malt Liquor. The place also has a full bar.

The food was standard "pub grub". Between us we had pizza, wings, crab cakes and quesidillas. All were decent enough and reasonably priced also. Our server was enthusiastic and knew a good deal about the beer and the whole place. We never felt rushed.

Overall this is a decent place with decent enough food and beer all at very reasonable prices.
