Stopped by here for the first time for the Bo & Luke variants release on 4/19/14. Place is attached to a baseball stadium, which I was not expecting. No parking nearby but I found easy free streetside parking about 2 blocks away. It was a beautiful day so I didnít mind walking at all. The place has a huge patio which was packed when I visited. Inside there is a big room with a 3 story ceiling with lots of tables, and a long bar. I took a seat at the bar.. They arenít very flexible with the tasters. In fact they werenít supposed to be doing tasters at all on the day I visited, but the bartender was super kind and hooked me up. Overall the bartender that helped me during the 1st half of my stay was fantastic, clearly a veteran of the place. She was very nice, knowledgeable, and helpful. Once she left and the variants party got started, though, service became bare bones, understandably so. It was pretty efficient at any given time. The selection is about 11 house brews and 2 house casks. Almost all of the ATG beers were fantastic, definitely a standout brewpub. I didnít have any food during my stay but what I saw looked awesome. Great place, if nothing else, for the beer. Will return. Tasting ATG from the source was a pleasure.

Iíve been to this place several times and while I like their beer selection, Iíve found their service to be somewhat mediocre. Sometimes youíll get waited on quickly. Other times, you might wait several minutes. For this reason I gave it a mediocre rating. Should service issues get better, Iíll re-rate it.

I have been looking forward to visiting ATG after having several of their beers over the past couple years. It did not disappoint. Very cool space within the minor league baseball stadium. The food was awesome. We had some pork nachos and smoked wings. The meat was so smoky and delicious. The beers were awesome, not surpisingly. Citra Ass Down is always a favorite. An Ale Pleasure was pretty tasty too. You gotta go if youíre in Louisville.

Visited on 2/28/14. This was by far my favorite stop in my short visit to Louisville. Very nice place that smells of BBQ cooking away. Our waitress was cool and though not an expert, was very much able to talk about what was on tap and available in bottles. I had smoked chicken and some sides and it was all awesome! The beer was pretty good, too! I really enjoyed their theme idea: hop, malt, smoke, etc. Good times, good food, and good beer!

Spent several quality hours in this joint earlier this year, most in the always-awesome company of Josh and Jacqui. Affixed to the minor league ballpark, with its Pee Wee Reese statue out front, this is a well-appointed and fairly typical-looking brewpub. But I appreciate the emphasis on smoked deliciousness, as well as the quality of the brews. Excellent lineup of high quality sessions brews and loads of special stuff (including some nice cask offerings). Great service, reasonably priced, very relaxing. An all-around must when in Louisville.

Love the vibe in the place, though the picture of one of the owners glaring down at you scared my kids. Great bbq, and an ever changing lineup of beers. Some are as good as you will find anywhere and others leave you wondering what they were thinking when they came up with that combination. Service is always great, even on game days when the place is packed.

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.
