Warehouse style interior with a nice sized long bar on the left and a bunch of tables. Good service. Tons of brews available, both their own and a handful of guests (Country Boy when I visited). Beers were quite tasty and the barbecue was good.

We weren’t in town specifically for the release, but turned out when we visited was the day Bo & Luke was on tap and out in bottles, so it was pretty crowded, despite being a rainy day in Kentucky.

Pretty decent sized brewpub in a brick building right by (maybe even attached to?) the ballpark. Pretty open layout with high ceilings. Nice sized bar along with a long, communal high top table and a good amount of normal table/dining seating.

Lots of beers on tap during our visit. They do flights as well as full pours. The beers were kind of disappointing for the most part, unfortunately. I guess I sort of expected that as I’ve never been a huge fan of their stuff. Oh well.

The food, however, was pretty good. I just shared the pretzels with my friend and both the pretzel and the sauces were great. My buddy got a pulled pork sandwich which looked great (and he approved).

Other than the beer, only real knock on the place was the service. The front of house staff was fine, but our waitress kind of...unfriendly towards us.

All that said, you can still get some decent beers here and it’s a cool place to hang out.

I was kind of surprise to find this attached to the local ballpark. Someone has some good investors. I’d had some AtG beers in the bottle and while not put off wasn’t 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 bartender’s 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. I’ll be back. Brewery #688.

I was really looking forward to this visit. Kind of a brew-pub feel with a "wait to be seated" sign out front. Extremely attentive and knowledgable staff. Tasting flights are fixed to the six "regular" styles (the beers themselves change often). But you can get tasters of any of the specials for $1.50 each as well. Loving the smell in the place; a true smokehouse. Food was solid if not exceptional. Beers were, honestly, a bit disappointing overall, but not bad. Definitely worth the visit. Its worth noting that they had a good number of bourbons at their full bar, as well as at least 8 beer bottles for onsite or offsite consumption.

Visited for dinner on a Monday, pleasant 1/2 mile walk from the downtown hotel I was staying at. It was a great night, so I grabbed dinner (Ribs, which were solid) and a few beers on the huge sidewalk patio Against the Grain has. In addition, there is a large indoor room with a few TV’s, a big bar, and tables spread throughout. The selection was solid, 6-7 of their own beers + a few guest beers from nearby brewers. Service was attentive. Overall, great place to grab a beer. As this spot is connected to the baseball stadium, I would imagine it gets slammed before and after games.

82 = ★★★½ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Brownings closed and someone who knows what is up has opened up a brewpub in its stead. ATG brews beers in six smart categories. Rather than aim for specific styles, they have six general flavors in which different new brews constantly rotate such as malt, hop, session, and most awesomely: smoke. The bartender was so helpful and enthusiastic about the beer and food. Ambiance is eclectic with lots of hip artwork specifically created for the smokehouse. The food is absolutely excellent. They’ve got their smokehouse focus on. Nearly everything on the menu is properly smoked. I ate pork confit fritters with smokehouse hash and a side of smoked slaw. I repeat, smoked slaw. The beer titles are an added bonus. It is places like this with a commitment to great beer and cuisine that are giving Louisville a bit of a scene.

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 you’re in the area.

Easy to find location with a large parking lot next door. New and clean bar and tables in wood and old brick building in the front of Slugger Field. Very freindly small crowd. Beer selection is good and well balanced. Sandwich and salad menu. Very good beer, food and entertainment location and good adddition in the area.

Really neat location next to the Bats stadium, grab a beer and head to the game. We came at 530 with a 6pm game and got a table right away, for those with that concern. Outdoor patio with a big interior. The host was nice and gave us a detailed intro describing the beer and food. 7 beers on tap, with only 1 guest tab that blew, and no bottles so the selection is a bit limited, if varied. The beers are listed by description like hoppy or smoke, and they say they rarely make the same beer twice. I ordered a taster, it was solid but left me wanting more. Nothing really blew me away, disappointed there was no Bo and Luke variant, or stout at all. The food was ok BBQ, nothing I’d crave to have again. Overall, it was ok, but nothing special. Unless you want to head to a baseball game stick with Sergio’s, Holy Grale, River City or New Albanian.

I visited here for the Bo & Luke release on a Saturday afternoon in September. It’s at the end of the right field concourse of Louisville Slugger Field, but accessible through the outside. There’s a large patio, where we waited for bottles to go on sale. The inside feels very big because the ceiling is so high. There were only 7 ATG beers on tap before the release, when Bo & Luke also went on. There were also a couple guest taps that didn’t pique my interest. The other stuff was okay. I got a burger that was excellent. The service was good. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in town.
