This is a really small hole in the wall bar and apparently an equally small brewing operation. The entire brewery is the size of a large bathroom. Talk about small batches. Most of the patrons are obviously locals and regulars, which gives it a really comfortable feel. Their porter is decent, too. Nice place.
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.
Pretty good in-house brew, and since that is their focus there is a real beer enthusiast/hippie culture feeling to the place. Their beer selection is a little sparse (they seem to brew the same four or five beers all year besides specials/seasonals), so it can get a little boring if you go there a lot. Cute servers, good interesting food in large portions.
small place but i like it. nice selection of brews. none that i had were bad. they will let you refill a growler that didnít come from them i was told after i paid four bucks extra since i didnít bring one, live and learn. the fries were damn good. the chicken parmigan tasted a bit fishy, i imagine they fried the cod in the same grease, but it was still alright and friggin huge. friendly staff and even the other patrons were friendly. a bit too much college earth people for my taste but not enough to keep me away.
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 .
Small bar with dining area on lower level, and an upstairs area as well. Service was prompt and friendly and the place was quite busy on a Monday lending a busy but not noisy feel to a cozy little place. Food was good and served quickly. My bartender was not much of a beer drinker but she knew about the beers they had, and her co-worker was very knowledgeable. Very tasty pints for under 3 bucks during happy hour made for an enjoyable after work dinner. Will go again while Iím in town.
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.
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.

Despite itís small size, Cumberland is my favorite brewery restaurant in Kentucky. The food is excellent (chicken sandwich, bison steaks). I enjoy drinking a beer on the sidewalk and watching the oddities of Bardstown Road. Parking is no problem on weekdays, on the weekends you may want to park on a side street.
