Great little brewery here! A hidden treasure for sure. Problem is itís small. You know a place is small when there are 12 patrons there (including myself) and itís standing room only. The inside is a small bar with 10 taps, all Apocalypse brews. Beer styles vary, which is great. Something for everyone regardless of your craft beer tastes. And everything I have had by them have been spot on. Plus they arenít afraid to experiment, so expect some unusual but tasty beers. There are a few tiny two-person tables and a few chairs at the bar. Enough for about 10 people inside. Very small area almost to the point of claustrophobia. Thankfully you can also drink outside in the patio area which has a few more tables and is quite a bit more spacious. The servers are the owners (at least I donít think they have any employees). But they are extremely friendly and seem to be happy to engage patrons in beer talk. I got quite a few good money saving homebrew tips on my last visit. They have several different sizes and prices. You can get a small sample for free (I think), a 5 oz for $2 each, and a pint for $4 or $5 (donít remember exactly). They also offer growler fills although I donít remember the price. Food is from whichever food truck they have in that day (it varies) and parking is out on the street. And unfortunately they are only open for a few hours on Friday and Saturday nights. I really hope they expand or move to a larger place and expand their hours. I think they would do great business if so. Definitely make this a stop when on a beer trip in Louisville!

Updated 2/10/2014: Hadnít rerated in awhile, so here goes- PROS: They brew an interesting variety of beer and arenít afraid to experiment; the beers are always interesting. You can get half pints here for three bucks (if memory serves me well) and full pours for usually four dollars as well as samples, so itís nice to have a choice when it comes to the measure of your drink. They do the food truck thing, but thereís good places to eat nearby as well (North End Cafe, for instance) CONS: A tiny, tiny taproom more suited for better weather (youíre standing outside if itís the least bit busy- it makes a FEMA trailer look spacious); one evening when I was there they were playing some really graphic (violence, violent nudity), cheesy horror movie. I know the whole "Apocalypse" thing is their bag, but if you go here thereís the possibility of seeing somewhat smutty horror movies. Not my bag, personally. OVERALL: Despite some of the negatives, I like stopping in overall, especially when the weatherís nice.They have some interesting offerings that are often rather tasty. If youíre going to visit three breweries in Louisville, theyíd be #2 for me (after ATG). Parking is on the street in the area, but iíve always been able to find something reasonably close.

Good new brewery in Louisville that my wife and I stopped at while in town. Beer selection was solid, and service was great. No food (and only open Friday and Saturday afternoons/evenings), but a pleasant stop nonetheless.

This is a must stop in the Louisville area if you are free Friday or Saturday nght. Parking may be a problem but the friendly bartenders (who also are the brewers) will make sure you have a good time.
The beer styles are mostly lower ABV (below 6%) which makes it easy to enjoy a couple. While the ambience brings to mind "industrial complex" (it is right next to a major interstate) it can get lively when the place fills up. As a bonus if you bring your dog you might get some free treats.

The small, mostly improvised brewing equipment visible on your left as you enter is the heart of the operation. The tasting area takes up half the space in this former sheet metal shop, but itís still small, enough for four or so small tables, and a small bar with a few stools. They use the parking lot space, though, which is huge, and very nice in the summer. Definitely a small brewery with a tasting space tacked on, my favorite of all tasting areas. All the beers I tried were very solid, very tasty. Staff was terrific. They will give you one ounce pours for free, or half pints or full pints. I think Iíd prefer a flight of, say, five beer, three or four ounces each, for a fair price, $5-7 or so. Chatted with Bill, who has plans for a very unique surprise for the brewery, hopefully sooner than later! Definitely worth seeking out.

Just happened to see this place in route to Sergioís so decided to check it out. Fairly new place I guess started by some local homebrewers. Pretty friendly service and gave us a quick little ďtourĒ (basically just pointing out the equipment from the taproom). Tiny taproom with a small bar and some tables, filled up pretty quick. They had about 6 or 7 beers on, mostly standard styles. Beers were solid all around. Food trucks are usually around from what they said although it was pouring rain when we showed up. Prices are fair, no samplers though. Nice little brewery, might turn out some good stuff in the future.

Although they have limited hours, they have great beer and fun events whenever they open their doors. Great place to "bar hop" to and from. I only hope they expand to a microbrewery.

Stopped in on the way to Sergioís. A nice place to try a few decent beers. They allow you to sample all their beers, then choose what you liked, good deal. Nothing extrordinary, but decent. Small seating area, which gets crowded quickly. We talke with the brewer/owner for a while and thanked him for allowing us to sample all of their beers. A good place to stop and try if you are in the area.

Warehouse area right next to the interstate. Very little seating inside but several picnic tables outside. Several taps available. Nice easy drinking beers. Food is available from a trailer outside - barbeque - didnít have any but smelled spectacular. A nice place to spend a warm evening. Jan 14 update - beers keep improving - very solid.

I was here when the brewery had been open for 3 weeks. The brewers were very friendly and informative, talking to us about the beer. Beer was solid for a place just getting started, but nothing special. There will be lots of room for experimentation and improvement. Just a handful of stools at a small counter inside, and picnic tables and a food truck outside. I wonder if they have plans for winter? We had a teenager along, who was able to sit outside with us and have a coke.
