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.

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. Theyíve 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.

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 TVís, 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.

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.

I visited here for the Bo & Luke release on a Saturday afternoon in September. Itís at the end of the right field concourse of Louisville Slugger Field, but accessible through the outside. Thereís 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 didnít pique my interest. The other stuff was okay. I got a burger that was excellent. The service was good. Definitely worth a stop if youíre in town.

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 Iíd crave to have again. Overall, it was ok, but nothing special. Unless you want to head to a baseball game stick with Sergioís, Holy Grale, River City or New Albanian.

Probably the best brewpub in Louisville. IT is located right next to Louisville Slugger Field and is walking distance from downtown. There is a bar and lots of open space with plenty of tables. There are several large screen TVs. The beer is unique, interesting, and tasty (I got to try a hoppy saison, grodziske, coffee porter, and imperial stout aged in bourbon). There were approximately 7-8 taps with plenty of eclectic styles. The food is good too - we tried the pulled pork nachos (which are actually served with potato chips) and the smoked turkey - all excellent. I would definitely recommend coming here and Iíd make it your first stop in Louisville.

Nice place attached to the ball park. Inside seems really big with really talk ceilings, but there didnít seem to be a lot of seating. Service was really good, the guy pretty much knew his stuff, I like to ask a few oddball questions sometimes to see if they really know what theyíre talking about. Selection was pretty small but very diverse, everything we had was excellent. Food was good, kind of brewpub meets smokehouse, slightly on the expensive side for what you got. While we didnít have anything crazy good here, we did have some of their other stuff around the state and Iíd have to say they are the best brewery in the state. A must stop if in Louisville, hopefully they have some great beer on.

A good addition to the downtown Louisville beer scene this is located just outside of Slugger Field and down the block from the basketball arena. Parking might be an issue but there should be something nearby.
The food is solid and accents the beer selection well. At any time there are two cask beers, six regulars, and the occasional special release. Following themes like "Smoke" and "Session" they are brewed to different styles. Try the $6.00 sampler which a good way to get acquainted with the offerings.
If you are in the area check this place out. Itís not too far from a few other stops such as the Louisville Beer Store.
