“Unique brews and fantastic sandwich.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Walked here from my hotel. We had a really good smoked brisket sandwich on special and the pulled pork. Both above average and the beef was great. We washed it down with two unique beers, a sour and a smoky. Enjoyed them both though will say the sour will be an acquired taste for many. Ate outside on a gorgeous fall day. Nice experience I will do again.

“Best chicken wings in Louisville.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

The smokes chicken wings are the best. Be sure to try one of their homemade sauces. The beer cheese appetizer is very tasty. One item that needs to be addressed is the lack of tv's. There are only 2 behind the bar! Not a location to watch sports.
