Stopped in with the wife for dinner while in Louisville. The vibe is great; clean and open with a good scene and awesome smells. The draft beer selection is limited but good, with seven house taps of some solid beers. Service was good as was the value. Iím really impressed! GET THE CHEESE GRITS!!!
Big open place though packed. Limited selection on tap - and not necessarily the best that could be offered . Seems more focused on image and food service than promoting the best beer. Maybe worth a visit when staff have more time to focus on beer.
Stopped for a mid week lunch while driving through town. Arrived just after they were opening and as expected it was dead. I would imagine this place would be packed before the games in the stadium it shares. Over all, it was an okay place. Beer was good, but I generally think ATG is slightly over rated. I had a brisket sandwich which was also "okay". I think the meat was slightly dry. I did get a free sticker for just posting that I logged a beer on untapped, here, BA, Instagram or Twitter. Anyway. #250 place rating and a free sticker.
Nice atmosphere; you can see some of their brewing equipment on the 2nd and 3rd floors from where you sit on the first. About 10-15 selections on tap. I had a flight of 6 plus a bonus for about $7-8. Beers were okay, and the food was decent. Nothing spectacular, but still a pretty cool place to hang out. My only regret was not having the time to stay for the baseball game (and sample more beer!) that was about to start right as I was leaving. Parking might be challenging if you arrive here during a game.
Swung by on our trip to Kentucky. Atmosphere was pretty cool, being attached to the baseball stadium. Food was alright. Most everything was a bit too smoked for my taste, but the pickled sampler was pretty tasty. Beer selection was ok, but most of the stuff on tap wasnít that great. Was hoping for something rare but nothing was on. Wait staff was very courteous. Worth a stop in. [9/10/15]
We werenít in town specifically for the release, but turned out when we visited was the day Bo & Luke was on tap and out in bottles, so it was pretty crowded, despite being a rainy day in Kentucky.
Pretty decent sized brewpub in a brick building right by (maybe even attached to?) the ballpark. Pretty open layout with high ceilings. Nice sized bar along with a long, communal high top table and a good amount of normal table/dining seating.
Lots of beers on tap during our visit. They do flights as well as full pours. The beers were kind of disappointing for the most part, unfortunately. I guess I sort of expected that as Iíve never been a huge fan of their stuff. Oh well.
The food, however, was pretty good. I just shared the pretzels with my friend and both the pretzel and the sauces were great. My buddy got a pulled pork sandwich which looked great (and he approved).
Other than the beer, only real knock on the place was the service. The front of house staff was fine, but our waitress kind of...unfriendly towards us.
All that said, you can still get some decent beers here and itís a cool place to hang out.
Interior is large, and patio has plenty of space. Just be careful if you visit on a night when there is a ball game, as it could be full of sports fans. Beers range from OK to very good. Food is better than bar average. Waitstaff are helpful and alert, made me feel welcome. A brewery worth a visit if you live in Louisville, or are visiting for a fair length of time.
Ambiance is pretty nice; a good sized space with fermentation vessels visible through the glass behind the bar, nice sized bar area, etc. some TVs if you are wishing to watch the game. Service is always pretty solid, I never get a "deer in the headlights" server who is completely clueless, and often they will refer questions to brewers, of which there always seems to be one present.Their beer selection included six of their own beers; there is a vast array offered here, and they change often; guest taps are also available, and hard to predict- some regional, some imported. The food can be excellent here- Iíve had some wonderful meals here (even the coleslaw is metal); I recommend anything smoked, especially any pork item. The value here is great- 6 3-4 oz. pours of their beers for seven dollars; full pours in the 4-6 dollar range. I consider ATG my local, and it never disappoints. Street parking is free after 6 p.m. (I believe, just read the meter). During the baseball season, the parking lot by the stadium is under guard supervision, and a no-go for parking (parking there is fine in the off-season). I can always find parking under the overpass leading up to the place, or just a little further back- itís never more than a five minute walk to the front door. Since youíre already in the area, check out Louisville Beer Store just a few blocks over on E Market St. You could probably walk there, but you should be able to find free parking in the area if you are driving.
***Updated 4/20/15: Went back for the first time in well over a year (got a little burnt out for awhile), and was somewhat disappointed. Though the joint was pretty busy when me and a friend stopped by, my main complaint is with the quality of the beer I had tonight, and also the generally diminished quality I have found in some of their beers when trying them at other local establishments: Iíve given more sub 3.0 scores to AtG beer over the last year than in my first two plus years drinking their beer combined. Out of the four beers I drank or sampled the other evening, I could only bring myself to rate one above a three. I think AtG usually shines on their hoppier offerings, but the ones Iíve tried (on tap) recently have been remarkably tame. However, recent bottles of Citra Ass Down and Rico Sauvin have remained excellent, which makes me wonder if the guys are focusing more on their bottle production these days. I hope they find the balance between production brewery and brewpub that will help them to continue their success. Not that thereís much competition, but AtG is still the best brewery in town, and should still be your first Louisville brewery visit. Food is still quite delicious, though I miss the smoked coleslaw.
Great location on the edge of NuLu and Downtown attached to the Louisville Bats stadium. Food was amazing and priced fairly. Great smoked theme going on. Staff was super friendly and helpful both times Iíve been. The beer selection was pretty fair with the tasting set being a real value. The atmosphere is very relaxing and welcoming. A really nice place to have a beer in the afternoon in Louisville or for dinner.
