Came into this beer bar two seperate times when I visited Lexington for the Men's/Women's Pro Tennis Tournament @ University of Kentucky. The first experience, I enjoyed two beers on-tap and then had to depart since I had work early the next morning. The second time visiting, I knew purely I was going to take a few brews with me to-go and also enjoy one of their offerings of the day. Here goes my overall review of both visits in one...
Come in both times almost at closing time, the atmosphere was very quite. I did enjoy how I was able to enjoy the beer in front of me and talk to staff in between sips. Easy going, English style pub with a small bar in the back right corner and a bottle shelving on the entire left side of the store. Dim lit and walls decorated with beer labels blown up to poster size and other branding from breweries.
All beers sold in specific glassware and to-go beer VERY organized with pricing on each bottle. Couldn't ask for better quality!
Service was very good and the staff seemed to have a extensive knowledge on the beer industry. This is a must in a beer shop such as this one! They nailed it here.
Draft Selection for first day included FFF, Stone, and a few others while the second day had Jolly Pumpkin, Dieu Du Ciel, Sixpoint, and Bell's. In bottle, Cantillon, FFF, Jolly Pumpkin, Goose Island, and MANY more sought after beers that amazed me that were in stock! They offered almost every style, great variety of breweries, and kept the bar stocked. One of my favorite reasons I will be back here.
Couldn't ask for a better experience but wish they had maybe 10 or so more beers to offer on-tap. This is definitely a top 50 beer bar I've visited so far in my "beer journey" and HIGHLY recommend if in the area.
