I love the aesthetics, deer heads with tiaras, grungy floors and walls, hole in the wall feeling. 25 taps, 13 originals and a ton of oddball charm, Country boy was a ton of fun. The crowd was eclectic, 70 year old next to 20 something's, a low hum of voices and no volume on the tv, thank God, I was in a Bliss.

I had a bad experience one my first go around but have been back several times since. The quality of the beers is top notch and these guys don't mind to buck convention. Knotty Pine is phenomenal and RX Strength barrel aged Stout is amongst the greatest beers I've ever had.

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.
