I was kind of surprise to find this attached to the local ballpark. Someone has some good investors. Iíd had some AtG beers in the bottle and while not put off wasnít really that impressed. But this cavernous space and location is impressive enough! On our very brief visit, I was at first put off by the bartenderís complete disinterest in taking care of us. Instead he washed glasses and chatted up a young hottie at the other end of the bar. But when he finally did attend to us, he did so in proper fashion. We could only sample one pint, but it was quite good. Compiled with their interesting collaborations, interesting (but sometimes gross) names and labels, I can see this being the Louisville staple. Iíll be back. Brewery #688.

Stop 2 of my Louisville brewery tour. Had the sampler and it was very good. Food was also very good.

Inside Louisville Batsí stadium; decent sized place with a relaxed vibe. The waiter was very friendly, informative, & helpful. A few nice beers on tap, although the list was a bit small, everything was pretty enjoyable. Really good food, too. A touch on the pricey side, but not too far off. Enjoyable place to visit, will go back again when Iím nearby.

Hands down my favorite place to go when my work calls me to Louisville. Itís a mandatory stop before I head home. Beerwise, this is one of the best places Iíve found, as the on tap lineup changes completely nigh weekly. If youíre familiar with the Bluegrass Brewing Company, this place is founded and run by some of the original brewers from there. ATG is all about experimentation and having fun with their creations, and while they churn out the occasional miss, they also hit some beautiful homeruns out of the ballpark (literally, theyíre in the stadium for the Louisville Bats). Iíve been there at least half a dozen times, and seen about three dozen different beers theyíve brewed - many of which have been delicious. While some of the staff arenít exactly beer savants, you will find at least one of the brewmasters working behind the bar most any time youíre in, and they donít mind chatting about the beer. The food is all phenomenal, particularly the (market price) local smoked chicken wings with local honey and your choice of their barbecue sauces (which are whipped up by the chef in much the same way the beers are whipped up by the brewers). Iíd be here far more often if I actually lived in Louisville. As it stands, Iím glad they ship kegs and bottles to some of the local stores near me.

Went for brunch on a Sunday. Ambiance was bloody Maryís, a DJ playing classic rock with various others, and brewpub. Service was friendly and helpful. Selection offered nine taps and eight bottles. Had all nine and bought one bottle for $26. Food was delicious. Will go again when the beer selection changes (which shouldnít take long). I recommend it overall but the beer was par. Parking is free on Sundays and thatís convenient. Updated the times per new Sunday morning drinking laws.

First off the beers are usually pretty good so no issue there. But the service the last time i went was pretty bad for it to not be as busy as it has been in the past for me...The food is lacking ever since there original chef left (running out of stuff on the menu) But i would recommend the place. Good Beer and good atmosphere...

Cool spot attached to a baseball stadium right in downtown Louisville. Open plan venue with a warehouse feel to it. I visited at 8ish on a Friday night and expected to find the place rammed. Instead, the place was about half full with plenty of seats at the bar available. My bartender was a bit of a cow, reluctant to answer questions etc. However, the rest of the staff were really friendly and chatty. 8 house beers on tap. No guests. ATG are pretty prolific, so there was plenty of new stuff to try. Flights of 6 set beers are offered. About 8 bottles were also available. Prices for the beers were great. Overall, a must-visit if youíre in the area.

Stopped in here on two occasions. One after a baseball game at the field it is attached to, and the next was the following afternoon for a Bo & Luke release event. Both times were awesome. Parking could be an issue if there is a game going on while you are visiting, but otherwise, thereís a dedicated parking lot. The staff here all knew their stuff and they all seemed to be beer people. The beers they had on tap and cask were easily found listed on a big chalk board by the back entrance. The food menu sounded pretty good. I ordered the pickled things tray and it was very good. The pricing was starting to get toward the high end, but I was happy with the food I received. Overall, this is a very cool place and I would very much like to come back again.
