The Louisville brewery scene should not be overlooked. Kentucky farmers are really good at growing grain (hence all the bourbon), so it was inevitable that this rich delicious grain mixture would be brewed into delicious, malt-forward beer.
Gravely is one of the most gorgeous places to drink beer in Louisville. Climb the stairs to the upper patio, and you can see the city skyline - it's stunning at sunset!
Pair a pork schnitzel with a funky Eagle Skull saison, bitterballen with a toasty caramel King George brown ale, and bratwurst with an earthy, herbal Churchill Best English pale ale.
As you enter from the back, you will immediately smell whatever delicious beer is currently in production.
