Stopped in to sample the local brews and to have a snack before dinner. Pros: Sell bombers and singles/6ers of their brew. Wings were really tasty, large bar area. Cons: Bar area smell, staff not very knowledgeable about beers, loud music. All in all a great place to grab a bite to eat and sample all that BBC has to offer.

They usually will have one or two offerings on tap that is hard to find elsewhere as well as the standard BBC offerings. Nice building. Food is solid. Good service. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

Fun place to visit! Only there on a trip to Louisville, though the Bourbon Barrel Stout was an amazing find! If you have the opportunity, at least try this beer!

Another douchebag rating updated! PROS: Nice space with a wrap-around bar, screened-in porch and plenty of seats for your brood (if you have such a thing; probably not in 2013); service has been pretty prompt lately; food is solid to pretty tasty at times; *great* beer value- half pours on anything for half the price of the full beer (imagine that!). CONS: Service has never been too knowledgeable, in my experience, not being able to answer basic questions about IBUs, etc without asking a brewer (in my opinion, you should know the product when itís released, especially when itís brewed under your nose); some food items are just not appetizing (the reuben was a disappointment); beers are inconsistent in quality. OVERALL: A good place to bring family, and to try some local beers from one of the cityís most cherished breweries. They have a parking lot, but this can get filled up quickly on weekends and game days. Thereís another big lot next door behind the brewery. So, the ratings still douchey, but a leopard canít change itís spots...

Sports bar/restaurant setup. Beer was hit/miss.

This is a great place to come during local sporting events if you want to capture the spirit of the city. It does get very crowded on weekends though as it is located in a busy part of town near a number of other bars and restaurants. The beer selection is so-so though especially compared to New Albanian, Against the Grain, or Cumberland. Check it out if you in the area as it is the best of the BBC chain (and unrelated to the bottle line) but donít expect too many miracles.

been awhile since i have been in this location. noticed immediately they have redone the bar area and moved all the "worthog" glasses off the bar area and put them on the walls. so the area is open and more friendly. only had a couple of beers and some pretzel sticks and cheese...served their beers in imperial pints. high gravity (over 8%) are 10oz pours. decent enough. the beers i had were so so. but i did enjoy the evening..think they might have had 10 or so taps and you can get a sample tray of i think 5 at a time.

Iím a long time fan of BBC but this location in particular has gone down hill of late. All of the beers are flat except the occasional beer that is over-carbonated and the bartender has to pull three pints to get you one proper beer. Specialty beers have been unimaginative. There used to always be a bourbon barrel aged beer on as well as a cask on Thursday, not anymore. With craft brew and microbrew on the rise in Louisville and all around the country, BBC canít keep calling it in.

A-- Went to the tap room first and then to the other location on Main, as the other had food. Mostly brick and wood. Big bar, lots of seating and very trending looking. Very casual but hip feel. Lots of parking in the area, on and off street.
Q-- quality wise was not over impressed really. Have had the bourbon barrel stout and it was average. Had their Black IPA on tap and could only drink half the glass. No hops and very alcoholic. Was warned by others their beer is average.
S-- All bluegrass beers. 9 total taps with 2 seasonals. Had a few of their 750 ML bottles. Not too shabby.
S- Decent service. Never asked for a second beer but water and sodaís were refilled well. Nothing outstanding and had better service elsewhere.
F-- Average. Cuban sandwich was cold, salads were good and the mashed potatoes were good. Garlic fries were decent.
V-- On this trip Bluegrass has been the most disappointing so far. Good prices but average beer and average service. Venue is very nice though.

$3 dollar drafts were a great deal. However, only 6 beers on draft - would like to see more. However, the choices I had were all very good. Service was good, bartenders very pleasant and knowledgeable.

I have been a fan of BBC since it opened in the early 90s. However, the quality of the beer has decreased at tap in St. Matthews. Over the past few months, words like "tinny," "flat" and "weak" are good descriptors for the variety of beers I have had there. Last night, when I order a pizza that features roasted garlic, and always in the past contained roasted garlic from a clove, I got what the waitress called "roasted garlic sauce" sans actual garlic. Her response to my comment about the poor quality of the cooking was "the chef on this night, no doubt!" Just a sad state of affairs to a once great establishment.
