Against the Grain

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 Louisville’s 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.
