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.

VERDICT: 82/100
The burger was quite good, but not special (yet quite pricey). As others have argued, BBC is great for beers, decent for food.

  1. I was surprised to see a wide variety of food! Usually in the brewery type of place, I expect that I will order some chicken sandwich or chicken tenders, but there are many other choices here! Perhaps only brewery in the south, was not a place in the Midwest, this is normal?
