The Beer Trappe is a great place when looking for a different selection of beers. They have a big selection of Belgium beers which is a big plus for me. I also like that they have many beer glasses for sale that I haven't seen in most places. They have 8 drafts to choose from that is constantly changing which is great for those who love to taste and rate new beers. The staff is knowledgeable of beer and what they are currently serving on draft. I think one of the coolest things they do is they have beer school you can attend to taste new beers and learn about them as well.

Some people get beer, and others only dream of it. This place is best explained by this little discussion I over heard on a saturday. Two parents come in with a 3-4 year old kid. They ask if the kid can be on the couch and the bartender says it's ok. They ask for two beers and a coke for the kid.
"Sorry we don't have coke."
"ok ice water is fine"
"errr I have water, no ice"

A huge beer selection, offering singles with 8 rotating taps and let me tell you, I mean ROTATING TAPS. I've been there on a saturday and seen all 8 taps change while there.

Very few places do beer this well, but thankfully lexington finally has a place that just does beer to perfection.

I visit the Beer Trappe every time I am in Lexington. This place is one of the best beer bars I have ever been to. They have 8 taps that rotate constantly. If they empty a keg in the middle of the evening a new one will take its place. They always have a very interesting and diverse selection. In addition to the draft beers they have a good selection of cold bombers and singles to enjoy as well. They also have hundreds of bottles to buy and carry out.

The Beer Trappe does not serve food. You can buy bags of chips if you're feeling really hungry though. (If you do need dinner or lunch there are a couple of good places right across the street)

The atmosphere is very laid back. Two big flatscreen tvs, A handful of bar seats, a few high top tables, and if you're lucky enough to get them: a couple of overstuffed leather chairs and a love seat.

The bartenders are very friendly and attentive.

They have beer schools every sunday where you can sample a variety of beers from a certain style. I haven't been able to attend one of these though.

The Beer Trappe is an outstanding place to have some great beers that are hard to find anywhere else on draft and hang out with friends. You owe it to yourself to check it out.
