The Best Places to Pair Beer and Burgers in Louisville

The best breweries all have a few important things in common. They’ll have quality beer, a quality location, and most often overlooked, quality food. The experience of visiting a brewery should be comprehensive, and these are a few places that take that to heart. Louisville is a city which prides itself on its authentic feel and local spots, here are three exceptional examples.

Monnik Beer Co. is a brewery which prides itself on its Belgian style beer and food. What this means is that on top of an interesting menu, the food and drinks tend to pair together well. The savory burgers pair well with the saisons, sours, and tripels the brewery stocks. It’s not going to be a place for everyone, but it does what it aims to do amazingly.

Now for a more classic American feel, there’s no rival to Against the Grain Brewery and Public House. This spot was created to represent the more grounded dive bar and community-centered feel of breweries. It only makes sense then that the burgers here are highly acclaimed. Burger Week is a big event at this brewery with a selection of incredibly cheap burgers. Overall it makes sure to remind each patron of the value of a simple beer and burger.

Finally the Atrium Brewery is the last highlighted spot which offers an amazing range of food and beer. It’s a bit unfair to call this a burger and beer spot when its range of food is so diverse. The brewery pairs with local food trucks to offer burgers, tacos, fish and chips, and wings daily. These paired with the sours and IPA’s make it the perfect spot for a beer alongside a meal.

Of course these are just three of the amazing breweries found within Louisville. Although these three are undeniably special for their mastery of pairing food and drinks. Not every visit to a brewery will be paired with a meal, but when they are, visit these spots.
