I love the aesthetics, deer heads with tiaras, grungy floors and walls, hole in the wall feeling. 25 taps, 13 originals and a ton of oddball charm, Country boy was a ton of fun. The crowd was eclectic, 70 year old next to 20 something's, a low hum of voices and no volume on the tv, thank God, I was in a Bliss.

I had a bad experience one my first go around but have been back several times since. The quality of the beers is top notch and these guys don't mind to buck convention. Knotty Pine is phenomenal and RX Strength barrel aged Stout is amongst the greatest beers I've ever had.

Great place, run by great people, and most importantly, great beer. Sinkhole Imperial Stout, Heart of Dankness Black IPA and their bourbon barreled offerings are excellent. Overall beer quality of all styles is very, very good.

Service is very good, bar staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Flights of four are available; no upcharge for half pints.

What a cool place!
Very relaxed friendly atmosphere for folks serious about craft beer.
They don't serve food but usually have a guest food truck outside
& even welcome you to order delivery or bring food with you.
Not very comfortable seating but some of the shorter stools aren't
too bad.
Good fresh beer!
I would've liked more information about their offerings online before
arriving. The website only listed 8 of the 24 drafts on tap. Rather than printed
lists, you must rely on mere scribblings on 2 chalkboards behind & at
either end of the bar which didn't even include % alcohol.
Fun place though & I look forward to returning.

Country Boy Brewing in Lexington, Kentucky.

Vibe & Service: Great laid back vibe here, with friendly staff at the bar, although while we were there, it was pretty busy, and the bartenders were too.

Quality & Selection: Nice selection of their own beers on tap, along with some other local and not local beers.

Took a trip to Lexington in September of 2015 just to come here. I was barely getting into craft beer around that time, but still enjoyed it here. Great atmosphere and great beers on tap.

Always been a fan of their beers. Recently got the opportunity to check the brewery out. While it was crowded, it was still pretty laid back. Kinda seemed like one bartender in particular was preoccupied with small-talking with other patrons, but I finally was able to get out to him what beer I wanted. The other, female bartender was very nice and courteous. Simple layout, no-frills, great beer. I'd love to go there again on a weekday.
