A very nice place. Beer shop combined with a nice bar. A few coolers with cold beer and an entire wall with an extensive bottle selection in a pleasant and clean atmosphere. Nice cabinets displaying memorabilia from around the world. Unfortunately we are a spoiled in the Cincinnati area with good beer shops. I could not find anything I had not already seen at the places around here but I am glad I visited!

Love this place!
If you like world class beers then it's for you.
If you want something extra then don't bother
because that's all they have. Seriously, that's all!
I liked the relaxed intimate atmosphere. the only negative
was having to sit on an uncomfortable high chair which dug into
my legs.
Service was great. Except when I called ahead to check about the
parking situation & a gentleman wasn't very informative about
options other than a 'couple of spots out back'. Parking is a bit
problematic but we were able to get there & ended up discussing
future options with the general manager who was extremely
personable & helpful.
Limited drafts selection. The brew I intended to try after seeing
it listed their website was out but the barkeep suggested something similar
& it was awesome!
And their bottle selection is pretty incredible! I'll be going back!

This is my favorite place to go for beer and good company. The selection is outspend as are the rotating taps. Kevin, the resident Cicerone offers the best advice and reviews. Without him my rating would be lower. Oh....and also Beer School. Learn and try new beers with the guidance of the aforementioned Beer Genius Kevin.

I didn't get to visit long, but I loved this place. The vibe is just awesome, so much breweriana along the walls and it has a completely welcoming vibe. I finally got to meet BEERchitect, and his knowledge of beer is quite impressive. He runs a top notch bar, with plenty of interesting beers on tap. Also a great variety of bottles available for purchase. I'm not in Lexington very often, but I will certainly come here every time I am in the area.

Great vibe. Great selection. Their draught selection is small but constantly rotating. Just about perfect. My only complaint is not enough sitting space. I'm too old to stand around drinking anymore.
