This place has a great selection of beer. A constantly revolving keg selection, always something exciting. I normally go for homebrew supplies, and grab a beer while I am there. It is small so they don't have an extensive range of supplies. Good amount of hops, and most of the grains you will need. Prices are just a bit higher than the big stores around Lexington, but still reasonable and a good place to spend your money, if you are going to spend it. The guys there are really helpful whether it comes to choosing a beer or helping with brewing. They also have all kinds of events for homebrewers and beer lovers.

Lexington Beerworks is a beer bar in downtown Lexington. It's right off a main road so it's pretty easy to find, even if parking is a bit tricky; if you're stopping by for a beer, chances are the businesses behind their building are closed and there's plenty of parking available there, just drive around to the back of the block.
They make a strong attempt to educate their beertenders on the finer points of their offerings which is refreshing for us patrons. They have 10 taps or so with a pretty good selection. They also serve bottles, cold and warm, and you can take bottles home if you want. FYI, a cold beer served at the bar is more expensive than a warm version of the same beer you take home. This is common at any beer bar with a retail license, we pay for service after all. The place isn't huge, but there's usually enough room to find a table or a seat at their brasstop bar. There's also a covered patio out back.
Lexington Beerworks doesn't serve food, but there's almost always a food truck out back offering Mexican, Greek, Italian, or whatever specialty is available that day. They also have a lot of homebrewing equipment for the aspiring homebrewer and they offer weekly homebrewing classes as well. The selection is great and the prices are reasonable, Lexington Beerworks is a great place to stop to get a great beer.

Beerworks is a must stop for any beer aficionado in Central KY. They usually have a great selection of tap beers as well as a tremendous selection of bottles. On the weekends they almost always have a food truck. They also have a great selection of home brew supplies and most, and I stress most of the staff is very knowledgeable about their selections. i would strongly recommend Beerworks to any beer lover that lives in Lexington or planning a visit.

Great addition to the starving Lexington craft beer scene. Location is prime for downtown folks. The only inconvenience in architecture us an awkward aisle and relatively small restroom. Bar and shelving is beautiful.
Service is great, albeit a bit overeager if business isn't hoppin. Would like to look at the taplist before being offered recommendations based on what style I like...as if I could narrow that down. Social media and email feeds are fairly desperate, as well. Play a little hard to get!
Selection is great, both bottled and draft. On part with the best in Lexington, which surprised me.
Pricing, I can't figure out. How do you charge 5 bucks for a holy moses, but only 5 bucks for a new holland dragons milk? The 4 oz difference doesn't compute, but I'm frugal....ie cheap.
Also a great place to buy homebrew supplies. If they don't stock it, just ask and it shall appear! Awesome!
Definitely a great place to go for a beer or five. Still ironing out some kinks, but love the spirit! They're not businessmen, which is good, but get them talking about beer, and you're set!

My first visit to the newly opened downtown Lexington craft beer bar was an enjoyable one. As soon as you walk in the door you can sense the warm, boisterous atmosphere. The crowd was pleasant and vibrant and there was sufficient traffic flow throughout the bar even though the space is narrow. The large wooden bar, rotating taps, high ceilings and comfortable bar stools made for a nice experience. The homebrew supply section at the back of the venue was small but adequate. They have a refridgerator for hops and yeast and a dozen or so shelves of grain and brewing equipment. My hopes are that they will be adding to this area in the future.
What made the visit so outstanding was the incredibly personal service. Greg, one of the owners, was helping to serve behind the bar. This guy is a class act! He not only knew his beer, but was willing and excited to share his story about how the business got started. His energy rubs off on his bartenders and everyone sitting within an earshot.
They have both a nice draught selection as well as bottled beer to choose from. I had pints of the Rocky Mountain IPA by Fort Collins Brewery and the Avalanche Ale by Breckinridge Brewery. I also had a sampler of Goose Island Pere Jacques. I noticed they did not have a huge selection of Great Lakes on draught or in bottles. Being a Cleveland native, I would love to see them have more to choose from.
Overall an A+ experience. We will definitely be coming back to this cozy downtown beer bar. Thanks Greg and Lexington Beerworks for a great night out!
