    Black bean vegan chili for the win! Excellent brews, small menu but everything is good! Cozy atmosphere, outside sitting. They host Bear with a Scientist every month. Service is not always the best.

    The "Ham" Burger made w/ ground pork is delicious and the constantly rotating lineup of locally made beers will keep you checking back. If you're a veggie, don't worry, they have a great menu for you

    A go-to place any time I'm in Louisville. The board always offers a great variety of beer styles and it's hard to find a bad one. Some vegan options as well that are quite tasty.

    Great beers. They only brew each beer once, so they are constantly changing. Reasons to come back!

    Great beers on tap with additional Bombers and Cans for sale. Burgers are amazing. ..gouda grits were awesome. ..food was a little slow to come out but worth the wait.

    Everything we tasted here was delicious! Salmon and grits, barbeque sauce flight, beer, pulled pork nachos, brisket, hash, hamburger. It was all good!

    I went for monthly "Beer with a Scientist" program. 30 min talks on diverse topics. Great brews, wonderful program. Get there early, it fills up!

    Brisket was smoked so good I didn't bother with the sauce. Baked beans were incredible. The smoked cole slaw was not to my liking but may just be me. Service was attentive and friendly.

    The beef brisket is delicious. Cheese grits tasty. Not a baked bean fan but these were good.

    Um...this menu design seems kinda racist to me. Why is the caricature for "dark" beers the only one holding a gun? In other news, free WiFi (no wi-Fi password) here, but few outlets.

    Citra Ass Down is a great IPA. If you are lucky enough to be there when they have it on tap, order it!

    The pork tacos were the first thing I'd ever had from Against the Grain and they are amazing! Must try!

    Solid selection of beers. Instead of a menu, they breakdown what they have by type: dark, session, hoppy, etc

    Had the smoked chicken wings, they were so good and dipping them in honey was a great combo of salty and sweet. Read more

    The veggie chili with smoked brisket is amazing. You put the brisket in the chili yourself. #DIYChili

    Brisket sandwich has pickled onions on it and all sandwiches come with piclkles, in case you want to request they be left off.

    The chili is sooooo good! Get it with chorizo and ask for some extra spicy bbq sauce

    "The Memphis" dry rubbed, slow cooked, pulled pork is perfect, as is the house slaw.

    Food/drinks are good, but the men's room decor is insulting. Not everyone hates the current president, nor loved the previous one. Don't get why a business wants to alienate 1/2 their customers...

    Burgoo is a hidden gem on the menu. Wash it down with a Citra Ass Down - the house double IPA!

    If they have it try Kein Lacheln Mein Nachbar, a kellar/zwickle cross, hoppy but oaky. Means no smiling, my neighbor.

    Butternut squash soup has a really weird taste...and the catfish fingers were really bland, but the beer was great.

    Bo & Luke BBQ sauce was gross. Cole slaw was not good. Green beans were OK, tasted like they were from a can. Pulled pork was OK, but cold to Luke warm when they brought it out. Service was great.

    The ribs were cooked very well. The sauce, on the other hand, wasn't up to snuff in my opinion.

    Nothing at our table was worth finishing. The chips seemed stale and cold. The Monte Cristo was barely a grilled cheese and the sprout burger had a wierd taste and texture.
