Parking is limited on the street. Smaller u-shaped bar and small beer garden out back. Selection is good. Average value.

Staff is really amazing. The servers are really on great with the service, but not in a pushy way. The food was great (I had the grass fed local beef burger). The beer selection was wonderful as well. Many interesting beers from a multitude of countries and styles. Even for a picky person like me there were plenty of options. The prices were extremely fair I thought (although I’m living in Tokyo so my idea on price may have become skewed). The 5oz pour thing is amazing as well. It is an absolutely beautiful spot with the beers and service to match. Better than anything in Tokyo. Louisville you have a world class pub, cherish it.

An extremely worthy pub, even though I seemed to hit it on a somewhat less-than-amazing week...a friend who visited around xmas sent a list of what they had on draft at that time and my mouth hit the floor. This time there was only one or two things that were notable, but things rotate constantly so it’s really the luck of the draw if you hit a good week (for your particular tastes). Fantastic staff, especially Tyke (sp?) and Lucy...friendly and very attentive/generous. Love that you can do 5oz pours of everything too, essential for a finicky / hard-to-please gent like me. Delightful ambiance and great food kept me coming back as well. On a week with some world-class German and Belgian tap offerings, I’m sure my score would be more in the 90+ range, but I’m sure I’ll be back, especially if I catch wind that they’ve resumed putting Taras Boulba on tap here!

Very interesting location - in old church. Incredible tap list that is constantly changing with a nice bottle list (many that are unavailable elsewhere in Louisville). They keep their list updated so you don’t have to guess what they have going in. Eclectic food selection - tasty. A great place. And have to give a place that has CBS AND Fou’Foune on tap at the same time a perfect selection rating.

Great ambiance, maybe the best service and knowledge I’ve ever experienced. I saw a few bottles, but mostly seems to be taps (20-30 of them). Solid selection of high-rated brews, but not a lot of original or new to choose from. Overall, really good, but not terrific.

Pretty dark, small, & crowded on the inside, everything made from wood & old fashioned looking. Friendly servers who were pretty knowledgeable about the beers. Awesome tap list & awesome bottle list. Had trouble choosing which beer(s) I wanted to have with dinner. Prices are not outrageous either - only a few dollar markup compared to what you’d pay at a bottle shop. Great food, although a little expensive given the portion size. Maybe I’m just a fatass. Really, really tasty, though...Stuffed quail was on point. I’ll be sure to stop here whenever I’m in town. Awesome place.

About as good as it gets. Always fascinating taps. Good food. Nice outdoor area. One complaint: you cannot bring your kids.

About time I updated my rating. Overview: Holy Grale, as is well-known by now, is in an old church building, and is styled as a house of worship for the beer lover. Mission accomplished. The main room downstairs is where most of the action takes place, but the Choir Loft upstairs offers additional seating for bigger parties, and the Grale Garten provides a nice outdoors place to sit. Both additional spaces often feature a separate beer/food menu from the main room, making this place like three locations in one. (See their facebook page for images/event information) Service is engaging and professional, and know their game without a doubt. Selection, in my experience, is unparalleled by most any place you’ll visit: the variety here in regards to traditional, modern, experimental, odd, sublime never ceases to surprise. Food, though I don’t order every time, is pretty tasty, and well worth the price. PROS: Just about everything. CONS: Can be crazy crowded, doesn’t really have their own parking. OVERALL: A world-class beer destination. If you’re within a state, and love beer, you need to visit this place. NOTES: I have parking tips for this location on my Gralehaus rating; Gralehaus is also well worth a visit, and can be accessed during business hours through the Grale Garten or from the street (Baxter Ave.)
