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.

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.

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!

Country Boy has the most freedom to brew what they want and with whichever ingredients they choose to add to get just the taste they're striving for. Add the experience of their brewers, and you have the best brewery in Lexington. DH and the fellas, and some fabulous ladies, will take care of you.
