As a relatively new addition to the Lexington craft beer scene The Beer Trappe takes the gold medal for the best place to purchase beer and to go have a couple pints with friends. All beers in the store are available for purchase as a normal retail store would be. What makes the Trappe so amazing is the eight rotating taps and the huge selection of beer they keep cold for consumption in house. It is a great atmosphere although a bit small it has never been uncomfortably packed. I don't know of many beers that are distributed to Kentucky that you cannot find at the Beer Trappe... Other than and BMC products of course! You can check their website or facebook to see what the current beers on tap are. However, they rotate so quickly (since they are usually rare and sixth barrels) you may have 2-3 beers switch out while hanging out there for an hour or two on a busy night.
I highly recommend checking this place out. If you need any assistance ask for Kevin, he knows more than most could fathom about the majority of the beers. Only thing I would change about this place is to keep it open 7 days a week! (they are closed Mondays)

Overall, a great bottle shop for the area. I've seen more expansive and diverse selections in MI, but this is pretty damned good for this area.
Came in midday, wasn't hassled or bothered but would have gotten help if needed. Great selection of midrange and entry sours, goof midwest selection and stuff from the plains (Prairie, Jester King). Decent amount of glass to pick from too.
Atmosphere was awesome.
