I don’t know which New Albanian location I enjoy more...this location is in downtown New Albany. There is a small bar, some indoor tables, and an outdoor patio. On Sundays, they have a special brunch which is awesome (the food is top notch!) and also a bloody mary bar. At this location they only serve their house beers - they’ve got about 8 regulars (which do rotate somewhat) and up to 5 or so "seasonals". Obviously there is a tremendous selection. I wish this place was closer to me because I’d come back every Sunday if I could.
Visited on a weekday afternoon. The crowd was fairly small, with a few older gentleman at the bar that seemed like regulars. The service was good. I ordered a couple flights. Their beers were excellent, with a couple being above average. Only the Hoosier Daddy was below average. The vibe seems very cool here, and I suspect a visit during warmer weather would be much better given the large indoor/outdoor spaces and garage doors. We had the brussel sprouts and frites, which were both awesome. I highly recommend this place. Of note, since I could not decide on one, we also visited the Pizzeria and Public House, which was a completely different experience that I also recommend. The pizzeria and public house are more suburban. If you have time, visit both locations.
FWIW: The picture currently listed is of the Grant Line location (NABC Pizzeria and Public House). The ambiance is great. Regular events and musical acts spice things up. The food is *phenomenal*. Chef Josh Lehman is very, very talented. The menu, while small, changes regularly. There are generally 8-10 taps available at a time, with a cask on pull more often than not. All served brews are NABC. The food value is good, but it certainly can be expensive. What I have found in my several trips there is you do get your money’s worth. The value on the beer side is generally very good. With certain specials, it can be excellent. A truly unique place in Southern Indiana.

My fiance and I consider this to be probably our favorite restaurant! The food is just amazing!!! It is not cheap, but you can count on specials like seared diver scallops and their great duck wings and one of the best burgers I’ve ever had along with their pom frittes - get them with the pesto dipping sauce! The beer list is house beers only and I know their list well, so I’m always more than happy. Note that this is NOT the former Rich O’s and some of the reviews here do not belong here, but on the Public House’s site. The picture is also of the Public House and not the Brewhouse as of 1/10/2012.
Great selection of beers. All quality drinks. Staff friendly and ready to serve. Nice wide open place. Wish I lived closer so that I could come by more often. Brewer came out and mingled as well nice touch.
Stopped here on a Saturday afternoon and was pleased to find it open and with 20 people having beer and food. Remodeled building with three garage doors on the front which looks like the beginning of patio seating. Bar on the left side front with tables and chairs for beer and food. 8 taps and 2 cask pulls. One page menu with more upscale but fairly price food items. I had the Potato Leak soup. Small portion but very good. Service was freindly and helpful. Was told the plan is to put a patio in front and beer garden on side. Will come back to watch the progress.
