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 I’ve ever had.

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.

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.

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!
