401 E Main St, Louisville, Kentucky, USA, 40202

Serves meat, vegan options available. Busy, local brewery offering burgers and bar food that's mostly meat stuff but tries to cater to vegans. Vegans could get vegan wings (specify no honey dipping sauce), seitan tacos, nachos substitute seitan (hold the cheese), and a vegan chili (say no meat). Open Mon-Thu 11:00am-12:00am, Fri-Sat 11:00am-2:00am, Sun 10:00am-10:00am.

First Review by VeganTemptress

The beer and food are soooo good. - Edit

Had The dirty vegan which is a Beyond Burger and vegan cheese. It was so good it barely lasted 5mins on my plate. Paired that with a black tea and cherries beer they had on tap and I was in heaven. I will definitely be going back!

We loved thiis place - Edit

We expected to have a hard time finding vegan food in Kentucky. We really enjoyed Against the Grain's food and beer. They change their menu every so often, so the items mentioned in the description were no longer available. When we went, they had a vegan black bean chili and a sloppy joe sandwich made from chick peas and cauliflower - though you have to replace the brioche bread for vegan bread to make it vegan. Otherwise the menu for vegan without modification was fairly limited. There were some salads that you could request no cheese and probably some sides. Luckily our server was originally from California and was very knowledgeable about making sure our meal was vegan. She was also super nice.

Pros: Finding vegan food at a brewery in Louisville, Excellent food and beer, Nice vibe and server

Cons: Limited selections, Have to ask questions to make sure meal is vegan

no longer offering the wings!!! - Edit

They are NOT vegan friendly and are barely vegetarian friendly. They took the wings off the menu because they took too long to make and when offering the brunch (which only has one vegan option with the mushroom starter) they won't add fries because they "want to save those for dinner". Won't be coming here for food again.

This was a really great stop by the ball park! The wings are a MUST!!! Wish their onion rings were vegan friendly but this place has lots of great try's for vegan/vegetarians!

Ok, I usually don't rave about restaurants who's main focus is on nonvegan or nonvegetarian food but this place has awesome seitan wings! I can't believe I didnt know about them before. They are juicy, soft, good "meaty" size, and oh so saucy. Just the wings alone will keep me coming back. (So much better than the BBC's)

Other plus factors are the amazing beer, which you can actually see where they brew it behind glass walls! There's lovely local art on the walls. They have a pickled plate that u can omit the egg and cheese from but keep in mind they dont alter the price. One reviewer said the fries were overseasoned so i got mine regular and they were super fresh and great.

The only downside is the bbq seitan sandwich comes on brioche! It's not vegan. They offered white sandwich bread or the baguettes that came with my pickled plate instead which is totally a disgrace to the amazingness of the seitan. I just stuck with the wings and topped some fries with them. Still not complaining. Next visit I will try the nachos with the seitan and a side of greens.

Pros: best seitan in louisville, tons of craft beer, homemade pickled veggies

Cons: no vegan buns

Wangzzzzz - Edit

The vegan seitan wings here are on point. You can request extra BBQ sauce instead of honey for dipping. The tacos come with the same seitan (maybe a different sauce?), but be cautious - twice when I've ordered them they've given me pork. The greens are also vegan and very tasty. I'm not a big fan of the vegan chili, it's always been a bit bland and thick, and the fries are overly seasoned for my taste.
