Visited multiple times in December ’07 while on a business trip. Pros: As mentioned, great selection of bottles, unique draft offerings, really tasty pizzas, amazing home made beer cheese. Cons: Very popular = crowded, cleanliness, experienced one server with a unique attitude, pricey. All in all would definitely recommend to anyone heading to the Louisville area. Quite enjoyable.
A semi-strip mall building that houses several connected rooms as well as a bar. A bunch of their own on tap (which are available in flights), as well as 10 or so guest taps (which are not available in flights). A good selection of bottles is also available.Service was friendly, but we often felt neglected. I understand the food is good. Good overall, but not quite up to what I expected.
Really can’t say this is the reason I bought a house in the area, but it definitely is a bonus that this is now my local pub. World class. Both sides have same menu and beer list. Right side of complex has larger tables if you have 6 or more in your group, left side has smaller booths and is more suitable for 1-2 people. Left side is also the way to go for growler fills. Update (May 2016): Some changes with the departure of head brewer. Bottle selection is greatly decreased now (probably due to the fact that you rarely see anyone order a bottled beer). Still keep 10-15 of their own beers on tap but not as many new beers as they used to have but the quality of their beers seems to continue. Some very nice guest taps (around 20) but half are pretty standard beers. Food quality is unchanged thankfully. Still a great place but not quite what it used to be.
High expectations on this one with a 99 rating and all. I actually parked in the lot across the street as the dedicated lot was full, but that was no issue. There are two separated places here - the Public House, which is more of a laid back bar atmosphere with comfy chairs and little rooms, and the Pizzeria, which looks more like a restaurant. Both sides have the full beer menu (although there were certainly not 35 taps, nor 220 bottles). About 8-10 New Albanian beers and another 12 or so guest taps was what I counted. Service was friendly, Pizza prices were really good, and they offered several styles of pizza, all at what I would consider great prices. The upside down pizza was certainly excellent. Flights were available - pick four or five; I actually forgot which. Was not overly excited by the beers I sampled. Nothing was terrible, but nothing really shined either. All in all an enjoyable place, not sure why it has a 99 rating though.
Plenty of dedicated parking. This rating is for thr Pizzeria. Ambiance is a older Pizza Hut style place with views of the brewing equipment. Service was quite good once I got some help. I had a 8x10 upside down pizza with pepperoni by myself, which was great, but not recommended (a lot of food). Beer prices are very good and selection of house brews and guest drafts was also good.
Visited on a trip to Louisville. We stopped on our way into Louisville for lunch and some beers. We were wowed by the location, setup and selection. They had over 20+ beers on tap plus a nice selection of their bottles to go plus others to choose from. The pizza itself was outstanding along with the service we received was also top notch. We were able to do tasters of everything which was almost a bonus plus the prices for everything including food was equally unbelievable. Overall for a place that is kind of off somewhat in the middle of a small town, to have such a great list of beers and great food to be this successful means they are doing a lot right. I would highly recommend visiting if you come close to New Albany for either the pizza or beer but especially for both.
Visited for early dinner/beers on a weekday afternoon. The place was fairly busy, but the service did not suffer. Our waitress was awesome. They have a huge draft selection including tons of their own beers (which are awesome) and several other limited-release guest taps. The upside-down pizza was fantastic. The place really reminds me of the Pizza Ports in the Socal. We also stopped into the Public House, separate but attached to the Pizzeria. It is a totally different vibe, dark bar with tons of little alcoves. However, they have the same food and beer menus. I highly recommend this place if you’re in the area.
