On one of the most bustling blocks of the always-bustling Bardstown Road corridor, Cumberland Brews serves up tall pours of craft-brewed beer and healthy helpings of Southern-fried comfort food. Brews range from traditional English-style classics to decidedly experimental stuff like a pale ale spiced up with a hit of Yerba Mate. To eat, fried fish sandwiches and cheeseburgers go great with a side of fried green tomatoes. Enjoyment of all of the above is amplified by the fast-paced street scene out front viewable through big picture windows (or through your own two eyes if you grab a table out on the sidewalk).
