Lite beer drinkers need not apply. However, beer geeks (and we mean that in the nicest possible way) flock here for the house-made brews as well as the extensive selection of microbrews from all over the world. If beer sampling makes you hungry, they offer pizza, pasta, and sandwiches.
Sample popular brews like American Pale Ale and Dark Star Porter while watching the brewmaster work his magic at this restaurant and microbrewery with several area locations. Many items on the menu of casual pub fare are made with BBC beers. Popular creations include the pretzel and BBC beer mustard appetizer, as well as the Brewhouse Chili.
This brewpub, located in the heart of St. Matthews, is the latest in this expanding, Lexington-based group. Lunch and dinner is classic bar food — like hot wings, shrimp poppers, burgers and ribs. The beer list includes the big American brands plus 24 microbrews. We hear it’s a happening late-night spot, too.
This 48-seat brewpub features at least seven house brews on tap — along with an occasional guest beer. The pub fare accommodates both meat-lovers and vegetarians. Save room for the house dessert — ice cream made with malt from the brewer’s Nitro Porter.
Part restaurant, part brewery, part smokehouse, Against the Grain stepped up to fill the void left at Louisville Slugger Field when Browning’s closed. Several rotating varieties of beer are brewed on the premises, and the menu aims to please carnivores and vegetarians with selections like beer-can chicken, pan-seared duck, and tempeh pulled pork.
