Brewery and bar are located in an old bread factory. Some architectural details are left to enjoy. Bar area seems a little antiseptic.

Service was a little cold. Beer highlight is the Lemongrass Wheat.

Lot's of good beer and food. This place is huge and always packed on weekends. They will fill your growler with a smile.

Stopped by on a trip to Lexington with my spouse on a crummy Thursday afternoon. First of all, don't let the neighborhood discourage you as you approach the brewery. Looks can be deceiving and are here. The place itself is very open and airy with an L-shaped bar with several taps. There are also several tables. The place was actually quite busy for the day and time which is a good sign. The bartender was very knowledgeable about their beers and very helpful. They offer a couple sampler flight options for 8 bucks and they are well worth it. Of course you can get a pint too. They offer 64 ounce growlers (that they keep cold prior to filling) and a rather unique 32 ounce can. I wish we had a designated driver since we had to cut it off at one flight. Even the customers were friendly as we met a really nice guy who was in town on business. This is definitely a place to go back to (with a driver!). The beers were all fresh and excellent as was the atmosphere.

Stopped by after a recommendation from the guys at Country Boy. While the place itself seemed kinda cool there was an overwhelming crowd of young, hipster types playing the stereotype to the fullest. Even the dreadlocked, fedora-wearing bartender got a chuckle from our group.

The biggest letdown had to be the beers themselves, though. Nothing seemed to stand out. 15 beers on tap running the gamut from brown ales to DIPAs with nothing in any of the flights leaving us wanting a full pint. Prices were reasonable and service was on par. We didn't try the seafood joint that was semi-attached to the bar because we just wanted to finish the flights and move on.

Being blown away by the beer, service and vibe at Country Boy- West Sixth couldn't hang and will be a one-and-done stop in Lexington for me.

A nice, big space with plenty of seating. Everyone on staff was nice. They offer an interesting canned growler that is reasonably priced and disposable. It is also connected to a pretty good short order seafood place. I was disappointed that multiple lines were tapped out.

This was a good beer to try. First it needed to be in the Barrels longer I really couln't pick up on the Barrel Aging. If that gets done this beer would get a solid 4.75 to 5 rating from me as it is very tasty to begin with.

A solid environment with plenty of room. Always a large selection of their brews. The crew running this joint are great people. Enjoyable and eclectic atmosphere.
