April 2002: My wife and I loved this little place in an arty area of town. It has a Bohemian feel to it and some more complex and interesting beers than most "normal" brewpubs.

Visited right before dinner on a Wednesday. Funky, narrow interior with a long bar with smaller tables. Perhaps a bit on the run down side of the spectrum. There is also an upstairs, which I did not visit. Decent crowd, I was in the position of being the only person who didnít have a seat at the bar, I was in that awkward position of floating nearby the bar. The small brewery is featured behind a glass window, behind the bar. 7 beers on, decent service. Food looked ok but I didnít eat. The beer I had was a session IPA and it was tasty. Worth visiting.
70 = ★★Ĺ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
I think the best thing about this place was how cozy it is. Itís really small and dark, but without being overly cramped due to sparse clientel. The actually brewing facility is tiny and the bar is homey. Very relaxing.
Visited this place a few more times. On my most recent visit I discovered the hominess of the upstairs. The upstairs is quaint and very inviting. There is interesting beer decor and a bathroom with a shower in it. I managed to get a seat at the bar upstairs and the bartender was very helpful and polite. I had a great time .
On main route and I was on my motorcycle and parking was easy. Small bar and brewery area with street seating out front. Service was good and sampler set of five brews was my pick of seven brews on tap. Had two more in ten ounce size. Food menu was good and portions were good. Interesting area with good brews and freindly staff.

Cool place, especially upstairs where there are 4 leather chairs right in front of the bar. The decor is old beer cans, nice tough. Service was southern nice, but not a wealth of beer info. What lets this place down is the beers. I had 10 beers, 2 were passable, the rest were just not good. I canít recommend coming here, even if directly next door at River City.
Stopped in with the wife while in Louisville. Cozy spot with a good menu (wings are great), with a decent draft lineup and a mead running too. Staff and value are solid. Worth a stop if youíre in the area.
Stopped by here before going to a Cardinals basketball game. Along with two pints and a sampler glass I scored two free tickets to the game. That boosts the service to another level though I donít think you should expect it on a regular basis.
There were seven house beers plus SN Celebration Ale on tap. They ranged from a pale ale to a nitro porter and stout. Overall most styles were covered.
Space is at a premium as is parking. Good luck finding anything close at night. Inside there is room for probably 80 people tops.
Decent bar in a nice part of town. Purchased a sampler Ė most of the beers had a lot more character and flavor than the BBC sampler beers I had with dinner. Bartender was friendly, even gave us a free sampler glass of a beer that had just run out. The mens bathroom was interesting with an old beer can collection. I didnít eat food but it looked pretty good while passing by me. I went here on a whim after going to BBC, glad I did.
