On a warm sunny day three 20-something girls get off of work from Churchill, the CVB, and Frazier respectively, and meet up in their dresses for what else, a nice cold beer on a patio next to a ball park. I can’t even tell you what the inside of Against the Grain looks like, but what I can tell you is that the patio is inviting, and the beer is on tap.
Located right outside of the Louisville Slugger Field, home of the Bats, ATG boasts being
only Brewer-owned brewery. There are 6
different types of beer to choose from (hop, smoke, dark, malt, session, and
whim) that are always in rotation, changing constantly. During the meal we consumed 3 hops, 1
session, and a whim (I don’t know the name of the actual beers but they were
all tasty). Sharing a smoked beer cheese
with house kettle chips we caught up and watched as the city ended its day and
went about getting ready for the evening.
I personally was not a fan of the beer cheese but the other two enjoyed
it. We finally decided on some dinner
ordering the following: The Angry Bovine, The Carolina, and The Memphis. For the most part we found the meat to be dry
and the coleslaw to be smoky but not in a good way. My suggestion is if you are headed to a game
and want to get a craft beer before going in to watch the Bats that you do so
at ATG, but the food could be passed by and you would not be amiss.
