Came here after friends from both Mellow Mushroom and Beer Trappe suggested I stop by for a beer. Ended up enjoying MANY beers here! When the price is right and the beers tapping are "can't pass up", it makes for an enjoyable evening at a BrewPub. Here are a few other things I found:

Walking into "darkness" a low-lit, completely wooden brewery bar is upon us. Two chalk boards make up the tap lists and all of the tap handles are wooden. They definitely had a country/farm theme going on. I think I also caught a glimpse of a bourbon barrel sitting to age in the corner of the room with chairs protecting it?

All beers were served in the correct style of glassware with extra care being taken to make sure they were clean. Bar was clean as well and felt like I was sitting in a home if living out in a Kentucky farm.

Service couldn't have been any better! One man (one of the owners) ran the show and did a great job. Not only was he able to keep multiple conversations going with all of the guests, no one had a close to empty glass or looking for another round. That was talent.

Selection blew me out of the water as well! With their 12+ beers they had to offer being wide variety for styles, they had Guest taps including Against the Grain, Three Floyds, Bells, and many others.

Would definitely recommend for anyone coming into Lexington! One of my favorites of the city.

Awesome place, awesome brews. The place was super packed and had crowds spilling into the parking lot on a Sunday night. The bartender was great. She gave out samples of everything I asked even though the line to order was 3-4 people deep.

Their barrel aged beers were very tasty and the experimental brews were also good. The habanero cougar bait (Nacho Bait, iirc) was the best habanero beer I've ever tasted.

I'd love to come visit when the crowds were a bit lighter and tamer. Pumpkin carving contest had everyone riled up.
