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. (521 characters)

Very cool place! Went here on a trip to Lexington with a few friends. Very friendly staff, good beers, cheap merch, and they let you bring food in! We brought in some really tasty pizza from Mellow Mushroom and had dinner while we chilled with some beers before an awesome concert at the Lexington Opera House. (310 characters)

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. (207 characters)

Lot's of good beer and food. This place is huge and always packed on weekends. They will fill your growler with a smile. (122 characters)

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. (981 characters)

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. (811 characters)

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. (275 characters)
