Great little microbrewery in Lexington. Iíve been visiting since they opened. The owners are very nice people. I try to stop and fill a growler or two whenever in town (putting my second kid thru VMI). My only complaint is the off taste they sometimes have that seems to come from their water. Iíve been told itís a PH thing or lime in the water or something similar. I believe this is fairly easily fixed although not suggesting itís inexpensively fixed. Seems to be the only thing standing between them and really great beer.

While in Lexington for a family gathering my brother-in-law took me to this very small brewery. Blue lab is a very small brewer. I got a nice tour from Bill Hamilton. They have 60 gal production for each batch. I purchased the IPA. It is a balanced ale. I hope to try more of their products. They serve 5 restuarants in Lexington.

A nice little tasting room. There isnít a lot of room and the tap system is certainly up-start with coolers. But it was quite clean, it reminded me a lot of a winery tasting room. I thought parking was easy on a Friday afternoon (4:30pm?) and it was alumni weekend for W&L (wanted to stay to chat up a couple of the Lady Generals). The beers were all average, reminiscent of a brewpub chain, meaning fitting of their styles, but nothing special. The only other comment I had was the fact that the beers skewed a little bitter/carbonated in my opinion.

Great new micro brewery in Lexington! Very nice owner and bigger selection than most other micro breweries. Beers have unique flavors. Highly recommend.

Newish brewery in Lexington, which isnít really close to anywhere. Parking was easy for me, but it is street parking. The brewery is in what clearly used to be a medical office, with the register at what clearly used to be the receptionist area. Other than their livery and some dog paraphernalia they havenít changed much else. The people there were nice. The brewer I believe is a scientist with a homebrewing background. The beers ranged from fairly poor to OK, but nothing was majorly off about them, so hopefully that means there is room for improvement. They offer three growler fills and will fill outside growlers, but insist on putting their sticker on the growler. They said they would charge me a fee on the first fill ($3) but they didnít end up doing so. Easy access from I-64 and I-81. Might be worth a stop if youíre passing through.
