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.
