Review is obviously subject to change but so far I love it. Mixed between modern and aesthetically simple the bar offers more than just seating with darts and a pool table. The bar is way too tall but the rest of the seating is great and there's couches and a patio.

The beers, of course that's what we are here for, were very interesting and if not suited to your taste there were 6 guest taps. The smoke lager was my favorite but the Hefe was nice and the Wee Heavy caught my brothers attention. The Pilsner was typical and the Dunkel was disappointing but 5 ounce glasses were just $1.75 so it was cheap and easy to try them all.

This is going to be a regular in my Lexington brewery hop and I think there are really good things to come!

Had a couple close German friends come visit. I brought them here within an hour of arriving to Lexington. Bartender racially profiled them and demanded that they tip. In fact, he left his bar to come over to where we were playing billiards and scolded us for not tipping him. Due to their thick accents, he yelled "Look idk where you all are from, but here in America it's expected that you tip. That's how I make my money." He was irate. They had both tipped him generously. Of the three of us, it was me (an American), who didn't tip bc I planned on having several beers and tipping at the end of our evening. What a welcome to America, right? The audacity of that bartender has kept me from every going back, and I regularly discourage my family and friends from visiting. His incredibly rude demand lost this brewery several regular customers. The vibe is cool and the beers are fairly good, but I have to warn anyone visiting that the service is lackluster.

Blue Stallion is a German style brewer and they rarely stray away from that. Have you ever had well-brewed, fresh German style beers?...They are amazing! You get what you would expect from a solid, local brewer. They do make a decent IPA and even lemonade for the non-alcohol crowd. As of early 2017...Dad's Favorite's, a local sandwich shop has set up food service in Blue Stallion, which may be worth your trip on it's own. The one thing you will remember about Blue Stallion is the abnormally tall bar. Seriously...short people may not be able to see the bartender.

Went midday with a few friends while visiting Lexington for the first time. Awesome place! Pool table, darts, shuffle board, and several tvs made our experience a lot of fun. I got a flight of 5 beers, my friends/tour guide got a .5 Liter of one of their beers. Great German beer selection with a few solid guest beers on tap. Also, they have a giant bar (giant meaning tall).

The environment and staff at Blue Stallion make this brewery the best in Lexington. There was a time when my friends and I accidentally showed up about 30 minutes before the doors opened, and instead of turning us away or making us wait, the head brewer left us come sit at the bar and let us enjoy a pint! Great people, great beer, great place.

Stop #471 on my world brewery tour.

Thursday night around 7. Felt like a midget sitting at the massive bar "built to German standards" whatever the heck that means. Sitting in a stool, the bar came up to my neck and I'm 5' 11. Fun stuff.

Got two flights and was able to sample all the beers. I love well done lagers (except Dunkelweizen) and these guys do it right. I had a pilsner, helles, hefe, 70 schilling, dunkel, english IPA, smoked lager, schwartz, wee heavy, and oatmeal stout.

The only beer I could pick apart was the smoked lager/rauchbier as it was a tad too sweet for me (and not smokey which I want too much of). The guys playing trivia next to me were drinking the Dunkel by the litre which I could easily do as well if it was not for driving and work the next AM.

Nice space and a beautiful old world brewing set up very visible from the back. They had a Gyro caterer inside as it was too cold for a food truck. The gals running the bar could be a bit more chatty but it was busy so I won't bust 'em for that.

8 years ago I struggled to find good beer in Lexington. Now I struggle to decide which place to go to.

Went on a slow Sunday night a few weeks ago. The bartender didn't seem very interested in finding out if I liked their beers nor did she offer any suggestions to try on the guest taps.

My main reason for stopping was a couple of their guest taps, which of course they don't offer growler fills of. Blue Stallions house brews were standard fare and even the award winning Barrel Aged Doppelbock was a big letdown.

I hate bashing small breweries because I like the idea of better craft beer but this place didn't seem to have anything going for it except a nice building to house it in.

I hope the keep working at the beer, at least.

I did all the Lexington breweries in one afternoon and as a place, this was my favorite. They have a large bar and also tons of couches and tables around too. It is very nice and spacious inside.

Tap-wise, it was mostly their beers with a few guests. Blue Stallion focuses on German style beers. All the ones I had were good but not mind-blowing.

Most importantly though, it is rare to find a place that serves good beer AND has a pool table!
