I took the Saturday 2pm tour and had the best time. Joe, one of the owners, gave the tour. Very personable, he was brutally honest throughout. I learned a great deal and was entertained. After the tour I sat in the taproom and enjoyed a well constructed Porter and Brown ale. The architecture of the original building is well preserved and lends to the atmosphere. The employees are knowledgeable and kind and are great reflections of Lexington. I consider West Sixth an absolute must if you come to visit or live nearby.

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.

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.
