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.

Country Boy Brewing in Lexington, Kentucky.

Vibe & Service: Great laid back vibe here, with friendly staff at the bar, although while we were there, it was pretty busy, and the bartenders were too.

Quality & Selection: Nice selection of their own beers on tap, along with some other local and not local beers.

Took a trip to Lexington in September of 2015 just to come here. I was barely getting into craft beer around that time, but still enjoyed it here. Great atmosphere and great beers on tap.

This beer is as dark as Guinness but 10x the taste and the nice overall warming you get for partaking in such a drink is unmatched. Problem is they just don't make enough of it. This beer and Schneider Weiss tap 6 unser aventinus are the 2 top beers on my list.

Always been a fan of their beers. Recently got the opportunity to check the brewery out. While it was crowded, it was still pretty laid back. Kinda seemed like one bartender in particular was preoccupied with small-talking with other patrons, but I finally was able to get out to him what beer I wanted. The other, female bartender was very nice and courteous. Simple layout, no-frills, great beer. I'd love to go there again on a weekday.
