Browning’s Brewery is located in Louisville Slugger Field, home of the Louisville Bats. This was the second time we had checked out Browning’s and the first time we had been there since the head chef (Anoosh Shariat) had bought it. Unfortunately, it feels like a brewpub that was bought by a chef. While some of the beers were really good, it seemed like their own beers were being treated like an after thought. And the food wasn’t all that inspiring either.
Oh, and don’t try to buy a growler there. They charge $35 for one of their fancy ceramic top growlers empty. One of the regulars there told that they used to be $25 a growler and that they used to be etched. Now, they’re just silk-screened and cost $10 more. Makes no sense. Luckily, the bartender had one of his own old jug style growlers with him and sold it to us (for $2) so we could a growler of our favorite beer there, the She Devil Imperial Pale Ale.
While Browning’s is really convenient for eating before a Louisville Bats game, I think we’ll just enjoy a She Devil at the bar and then get a hot dog at the game.
