Nice open space, lots of airflow and natural sunlight, plenty of seating. Taps conatantly rotating, always something new, and always a diverse selection. Beers were all solidly above average to average. My pulled pork was the best Iíve ever had.

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.

Great restaurant and brewery tucked into the minor league baseball stadium. nice tap selection and they offer flight/tasters. The hamburgers were recommended and delivered. Friendly service if not the most beer-savy servers. This is on short list of places to always stop at when visiting Louisville.

Interesting concept of offering one option for six different styles, plus some specialties. Great service on all fronts. Awesome food. Pricey all around, but a must stop. Louisville!

My go to place in Louisville. Good food. Kid friendly. Easy parking on a Saturday afternoon. And I can get a sampler and try every beer on the menu. Plus, you have to love the names and the way they split up styles. ATG just needs to bottle some of their stuff...and brew a few things more than once.

Ambiance is pretty nice; a good sized space with fermentation vessels visible through the glass behind the bar, nice sized bar area, etc. some TVs if you are wishing to watch the game. Service is always pretty solid, I never get a "deer in the headlights" server who is completely clueless, and often they will refer questions to brewers, of which there always seems to be one present.Their beer selection included six of their own beers; there is a vast array offered here, and they change often; guest taps are also available, and hard to predict- some regional, some imported. The food can be excellent here- Iíve had some wonderful meals here (even the coleslaw is metal); I recommend anything smoked, especially any pork item. The value here is great- 6 3-4 oz. pours of their beers for seven dollars; full pours in the 4-6 dollar range. I consider ATG my local, and it never disappoints. Street parking is free after 6 p.m. (I believe, just read the meter). During the baseball season, the parking lot by the stadium is under guard supervision, and a no-go for parking (parking there is fine in the off-season). I can always find parking under the overpass leading up to the place, or just a little further back- itís never more than a five minute walk to the front door. Since youíre already in the area, check out Louisville Beer Store just a few blocks over on E Market St. You could probably walk there, but you should be able to find free parking in the area if you are driving.

Nice place. Liked the bartender. Open and light atmosphere. Parking sucks. Decent beers. Limit selection other than atg. Quick rotations.
