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.

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!
