Ah, Country Boy. This place is fun! The squat little building is housed in a small little industrial park area close to UK. You would have no idea there was a brewery back there unless you were looking for one. A food truck was parked out front on my visit with some great looking burgers. A couple picnic tables sat out in the old parking lot in front of the entrance. The "L" shaped bar sat, probably, 18 people and a smattering of bar tables could hold another 40-50. Eclectic beer stuff decorated the walls.

The staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. The tap list was extensive with 15 in house offerings and another 10 or so guest taps. The quality of Country Boy's Brewing is such that there is no need to order any guest taps. They brewed everything from gose to IPAs to bourbon barrel browns, all of which were delicious. Not only is the staff friendly but the locals that frequent the place are just the same. Everyone knows everyone and good conversations were had all night long.

I can't recommend Country Boy high enough. The beer is A+ while the people are even better. The spot is flat out fun. Go there!

Country Boy has the most freedom to brew what they want and with whichever ingredients they choose to add to get just the taste they're striving for. Add the experience of their brewers, and you have the best brewery in Lexington. DH and the fellas, and some fabulous ladies, will take care of you.

A great location, exactly what Lexington needs.

Went before (and after) a University of Kentucky Basketball game at Rupp Arena. Quick tip - parl at Country Boy and walk to the Arena! They don't charge for parking, even on game nights! so, free parking, good beer, close to downtown!

The Boys had 24 taps when I went in Feb 2014, 12 of them were their own brews, 12 guest taps.

No food by the Boys themselves, but you can almost always find one of Lexington's finest food trucks in the parking lot.

Go on a summer night and enjoy the patio and Giant Jenga!

Country Boy Brewing is a brewery and tap room for people who love craft beer more than they love ambiance. The building is located in a commercial neighborhood, parking is ample by 5 o'clock.
There are 24 taps at the bar, usually half or just over half are dedicated to their own brews, the rest are rounded out with guest taps. A small outdoor patio area also has a handful of duplicate taps. Bartenders are knowledgeable and friendly.
Food from outside venues is allowed, restaurants that deliver can bring you food, and there is a regular schedule of local food trucks in the evenings.
These guys' beer can best be described as 'experimental.' There are not a lot of what craft beer fans would consider 'standards' on the tap list, and if you are a fan of bourbon barrel aged brews, there are usually multiple selections available, rotating seasonally.
Growler/howler fill specials are 12-4 PM on Saturdays and Sundays, limited brews are available for $5/$10.
During special events, the small size can create for crowding issues, so plan ahead if you're visiting for one of them.

Impressed by the selection of beers at this place and furthermore by the neighborly staff and servers. This is the type of place I wish I had in my hometown. Met a lot of homebrewers there. Beers were good to great. If in Lex again, this is the first place I will go to. Under rated.
