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 wildly (excuse the pun) popular breakfast and lunch spot is an ode to the egg. The dining room features egg art and even egg-shaped salt and pepper shakers. The creatively titled offerings include “Violet You’re Turning Violet” blueberry pancakes and “Crispy Hippie Crunch” granola waffles.
After more than 30 years and expansions to include five area locations, this Best of Louisville award record-holder remains beloved to a diverse crowd, as do the always-popular Bristol Burger and green chili wontons. The original Bardstown Road location offers lunch, dinner and late-night menus.
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.
