This place has a great selection of beer. A constantly revolving keg selection, always something exciting. I normally go for homebrew supplies, and grab a beer while I am there. It is small so they don't have an extensive range of supplies. Good amount of hops, and most of the grains you will need. Prices are just a bit higher than the big stores around Lexington, but still reasonable and a good place to spend your money, if you are going to spend it. The guys there are really helpful whether it comes to choosing a beer or helping with brewing. They also have all kinds of events for homebrewers and beer lovers.

I've been here 3 or 4 times. Service is spotty, been served soured beers {porters, not sours). Many better options in Lexington.

While they do still have food trucks, there is also now a pizza kitchen on site.

Lexington Beerworks is a beer bar in downtown Lexington. It's right off a main road so it's pretty easy to find, even if parking is a bit tricky; if you're stopping by for a beer, chances are the businesses behind their building are closed and there's plenty of parking available there, just drive around to the back of the block.

They make a strong attempt to educate their beertenders on the finer points of their offerings which is refreshing for us patrons. They have 10 taps or so with a pretty good selection. They also serve bottles, cold and warm, and you can take bottles home if you want. FYI, a cold beer served at the bar is more expensive than a warm version of the same beer you take home. This is common at any beer bar with a retail license, we pay for service after all. The place isn't huge, but there's usually enough room to find a table or a seat at their brasstop bar. There's also a covered patio out back.

Lexington Beerworks doesn't serve food, but there's almost always a food truck out back offering Mexican, Greek, Italian, or whatever specialty is available that day. They also have a lot of homebrewing equipment for the aspiring homebrewer and they offer weekly homebrewing classes as well. The selection is great and the prices are reasonable, Lexington Beerworks is a great place to stop to get a great beer.

Beerworks is a must stop for any beer aficionado in Central KY. They usually have a great selection of tap beers as well as a tremendous selection of bottles. On the weekends they almost always have a food truck. They also have a great selection of home brew supplies and most, and I stress most of the staff is very knowledgeable about their selections. i would strongly recommend Beerworks to any beer lover that lives in Lexington or planning a visit.

Great addition to the starving Lexington craft beer scene. Location is prime for downtown folks. The only inconvenience in architecture us an awkward aisle and relatively small restroom. Bar and shelving is beautiful.

Service is great, albeit a bit overeager if business isn't hoppin. Would like to look at the taplist before being offered recommendations based on what style I like...as if I could narrow that down. Social media and email feeds are fairly desperate, as well. Play a little hard to get!

Selection is great, both bottled and draft. On part with the best in Lexington, which surprised me.

Pricing, I can't figure out. How do you charge 5 bucks for a holy moses, but only 5 bucks for a new holland dragons milk? The 4 oz difference doesn't compute, but I'm frugal....ie cheap.

Also a great place to buy homebrew supplies. If they don't stock it, just ask and it shall appear! Awesome!

Definitely a great place to go for a beer or five. Still ironing out some kinks, but love the spirit! They're not businessmen, which is good, but get them talking about beer, and you're set!
