Against the Grain Brewery and Smokehouse is opening today at its newly renovated brewpub in Louisville, Kentucky, at 401 E. Main St. in Slugger Field at the corner of Jackson and Main Streets. They will be open from 11am to midnight six days a week with a limited Sunday schedule, but will stay upen until 2am if there are sufficient patrons to justify it.
Against the Grain is Louisville’s only brewer owned brewpub with innovative beers and delicious menu. Jerry Gnagy, Sam Cruz, Adam Watson, and Andrew Ott are the brewers/owners who share a variety of backgrounds. Jerry brings an award winning brew history, Sam has deep ties to both the beer and artistic communities, Adam is a licensed attorney who would rather practice beer, and Andrew has over a decade of restaurant management experience. The beer will be an ever-evolving array that always covers the gamut of flavors by providing a session, hoppy, malty, dark, smoked, and an experimental beer at all times.
The food is designed with same philosophy as their brewing. Fresh and interesting smokehouse fare with a gastropub flare provides flavors that stand alone or compliment their beers. Regular menu changes offer seasonal ingredients and optimal pairing with their dynamic beer list.
