Ambiance is wonderful, playing well with the Trappist motif. A little small, but the new Gralegarten and not-so-new Choir Loft have helped immensely.
The service is very good, with knowledgeable staff. However, it is often busy, but even then the staff is generally quick with a suggestion.
The selection is wonderful, with /very few/ dull options on tap. (20 taps + 6 upstairs) A concerted effort is made to have a broad variety of brews available at all times, and this shows. The bottle selection has grown nicely, with particular attention to sours and lambics.
One of the nicest surprises, for first timers, is the sinful food awaiting them, for reasonable prices. The fritjes with poutine are NOT to be missed at any cost.
Special events are done with precision and attention to detail. Really impressive execution (and they have gotten rather lucky with the weather!).
Draft prices can be high, with some 10oz pours running as high as 7-7.50, but considering the very special brews offered, this is neither outrageous nor noncompetitive. In fact, Iíd say the best deals are often the harder-to-find brews.
An overall wonderful experience, and it makes me sad to see a bad faith review on this page.

Stopped in with my wife while in Louisville. I canít say enough good about this place! A little small, but the staff and selection were both great, and the value was good too. We didnít eat, but we really enjoyed ourselves. Do yourself a favor and go here.

Very cool looking establishment. Service is terrible, very snobby staff. Selection is nice and the food is decent. Little bit pricey as well.

This place is pretty awesome. the selection can and will beat pretty much anyone else in the state. The events are all top notch and the crowd can be good and full of fellow beer geeks which makes conversations very easy and lots of beer being shared. The menu is a bit pricey but the food is superb and definitely worth it after or during the consumption of such amazing beers. If you end up in Louisville this is a definite stop on the list, you wont be sorry.

Came here for Saint Sours Day Sunday, a well organized event with a shocking selection of sours. The outdoor space was great, and the amazing weather dinít hurt. The choir loft is terrific, downstairs is cozy, although space is a bit tight. Food was amazing. Staff were all very friendly and engaging, quick and efficient. Definitely have to come back to check out their normal beer line up. Prices are high for the area, but still cheaper than anything weíve got in Washington DC! A must-visit while in Louisville.

Interesting building. Beer choices focus mainly on European beers. Food is a little too exotic for my taste, would rather have a burger than quail eggs. Atmosphere was a little snobby, made me uncomfortable. Might go back if my friends wanted to, but I prefer a place that is a little less uptight.

Great beer selection and prices are reasonable. Food is top notch as well. Had the pork belly that was outta this world. Not your typical pub grub.

A bar in a little, old brick church? Why not? The renovation is cool. World class tap list. Always helpful and knowledgable servers. Food selection is limited but everything is great.

Really trendy new bar in Louisville, owners have a passion for beer and it shows, that has a hip feel to it. Beers tended to be a little overpriced though some were very rare. Service has been hit or miss, Iíve had great service before and Iíve had the worst snot nosed pretense filled service Iíve ever had in any beer related establishment. Definitely worth going if youíre in the Highlands or are on a quest to try something rare.
*Update* Went back again and hoped for better service, was a failure. Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Only changed my overall and service ratings. Selection is still great.
