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.

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.

Visited here around lunch time on a weekday. Very nice facility with ample parking for cars and bikes. Decor is a mix of historic and modern, making it functional and clean yet with some added ambiance. 3-sided bar, a number of tables and plenty of standing room. Adjoining seafood restaurant can provide food for West 6th customers. Good variety of beers on tap. Growlers (as cheap as I've ever seen) and growler fills available to go, as well as 3 types of canned beer. A pretty good hike from center city, but free city bus service to the area is available at times.
