One of their most impressive accomplishments was beating out Anchor's Old Foghorn and Sierra Nevada's Bigfoot in the Barley wine category at the 1997 Great American Beer Festival. This feat is nothing to sneeze at as beer lovers worldwide covet these two beers, as they are truly exceptional beers.
As if brewing great beers wasn’t enough of a feat, Bluegrass also runs a brewpub. The restaurant is located in a large building that originally housed a seafood version of the Chi-Chi's chain and was opened only one year after the opening of the brewery. The interior was restored and the transformation created a working brewery in its place. A unique aspect of the restaurant is that the main area of the restaurant is divided into two large rooms with a kitchen that is viewable in the middle. And like any good brewpub, there is a full service bar adorned with large screen TVs and taps galore. Diners at the brewpub can watch through the big glass windows as Brewmaster Dave Pierce and assistant Matt Gould work their brewing mojo! If you find yourself in their neck of the woods be sure to stop by because every Wednesday, BBC hosts an open Bluegrass Jam sponsored by Bluegrass Anonymous and we can’t think of a better accompaniment to some of their tasty products!
