Actually got to check this place out on my 21st birthday. Already had a great interest in the place because of the great IPA they have crafted know as West Sixth IPA.

Atmosphere - The place has a independent and outdoorsy warehouse type of feel which I find really appealing. Especially for a place your just coming to drink some good craft beer and have some good conversation.

Quality - Not an issue at all here. The quality of everything was great and definitely on all the brews they had available.

Service - They had regular service and there were no problems such as waits or rude people. A lot of down to earth and kind employees. All local oriented people who couldn't have been more friendly.

Selection - The selection is good. A good variety of styles with all brews in-house. IPA, Honey Rye, Wheat, Amber, Stout. All delicious.

Food - No food served by the company, which I don't love. They do offer a food cart on the road during certain times. Not my favorite part of the brewery but not a big deal. I just want GOOD beer! and they supply that.

The value is average..just as affordable as any good craft brewery I would say.

This is a great up and coming brewery that only has room for growth. The have they're IPA canned and just heard an announcement that they are canning there amber. Excited! Great brewery in Lexington, KY.

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.
