The beer selection at the Krafty Draft is phenomenal (anyone saying otherwise must have been looking for a Bud Light). They have a huge number of taps (there really are at least 100), as well as a decent selection of bottled beer and wine (the beer menu comes in a binder). The beers on tap are constantly changing and cover a breadth of beer styles, both craft and imports. I know a few things about beer, but I basically learn something every time I come to the Krafty, and that's a good thing. The beer flights are a great way to try new beers without drinking too much (or breaking the bank), and I really like how the flight cards double as a $1 off your next pint (that way you can finish your session off with whatever beer in the flight struck your fancy).

The food is pretty good, especially whenever they have something that's been smoking. The pork loin sandwich (get it with the horseradish sauce, trust me) and wings are my favorite choices. Most of the other things are pretty standard bar fare (burgers, nachos), but they're priced right, and they do have some different things as specials on different days of the week.

As for the setting, the word eclectic comes to mind. It looks like a large house of sorts (I've heard some people say it was a model home at one point), so the inside is kind of laid out in different areas like that. There are a couple of bars (the one I generally go to is the big one when you enter) as well as tables with chairs (I'm pretty sure there's even a recliner or two). It honestly feels a bit homier than your average bar, and certainly a whole lot less commercial (maybe corporate is a better word). The staff have always been great and Billy (the owner) knows his beer (had never really even heard of a Gose before going to the Krafty and having a conversation with him, a sad fact that was immediately rectified). It's just a laid-back, fun place to go, meet up with friends and have a few brews. There's nothing else quite like it in Lexington.

100 beers on-tap, and the menu is laid out in a way that is very descriptive and helpful. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful, as well. Beers are available in full 12-oz pours, half pours, and flights. Food was just 'meh', but I'm ok with that.

Great place if you are in the Columbia / Lexington area. Locally owned and relaxed atmosphere, great selections on tap and they change regular. Several of the better regional breweries represented like Terrapin and Foothills. Billy and his wife run the place, great folks all around.
