Bluegrass Brewing Company (Louisville, KY)
636 East Main Street, Louisville, KY 40202-1004, T: 502-584-2739
We stumbled upon this Bluegrass Brewing Company restaurant by accident, on a warm summer day. Turns out BBC has a couple of locations in the larger Louisville area and is highly regarded for its various home-brewed beers. My wife was appreciative of the beers too, which are actually brewed on location!
BBC has a large menu with mostly burgers, sandwiches, and pizzas. I ordered a Bison Burger ($11.99) with bacon ($0.75) and haystack onion straws ($0.50) and homemade chips. I also asked for some BBQ sauce and jalapenos, to give it some extra kick. The burger was grilled a bit too long, which made it dry; this could only partly be compensated by the tasty BBQ sauce. The chips were mixed: some were cold and soggy, others were warm and crispy.
The burger was quite good, but not special (yet quite pricey). As others have argued, BBC is great for beers, decent for food.
