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.

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!
