In a residential area - doesnít look like much from the outside but very nice on the inside. Nice selection of beers including some guest taps. Very solid German style beers - very happy to see a nearby brewery have a regular selection of well made German styles. A great place.

A converted small factory building that is much more inviting inside than it appears outside. The bartenders (all female) were able to discuss the Blue Stallion brews, and were prompt and friendly with their service. The Blue Stallion beers are a little light on hops, but that doesnít keep them from being enjoyable. Worth a visit.

Came here on a Tuesday between 6 and 9 pm. Like chudwick said, tallest bar Iíve ever seen. Up to some short peopleís chins. A lot of comments from the (seemingly local) patrons overheard about this, too. Besides that, though, the space is large, and the ambiance is beautiful. Bartender was reasonably helpful. Seemed a little busy, with no patience for nerdy laptop crap, but I understand. 5oz tasters are offered for $2. Samples are offered, which Iíd approximate to 2oz. A lot to try on tap. No food besides a food truck, which was priced $7-$10. No thanks, Iíll stop by Wendyís later (yeah Iím cheap). Overall worth a stop, a lot of new stuff to try.

Visited on a Thursday evening. Parking is scattered next to the brewery, on the street and a lot across the street. Shiny new interior, with a social room as you enter featuring tables, dart boards, a separate area with a pool table, the large bar and then the copper brewery equipment. There were folks hanging out throughout the place, and there was a really nice relaxed vibe. As others have mentioned, they defining characteristic of this place (beyond the superbly well made lagers) is the height of the bar. I am 6í2Ē and felt like a dwarf. The super friendly guy next to me at the bar explained that the German brewer wanted to design it similar to bars in Germany. 8 house beers, focused on Lager styles (which I love) on, as well as 5 well chosen guest taps. I had a really great time hanging out here, and highly recommend a visit.
82 = ★★★Ĺ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Street parking and a tiny lot a short walk away. This is a warehouse brewery with an expansive tasting room. Nicely done. The copper on all the fermenters and brewing equipment visible from the bar is a nice touch. There was a food cart set up next to the bar. The bar is, as others have mentioned, a bit on the high side. The bar filled up with regulars fairly quickly. 20 taps, a quarter of them empty, several solid guest taps and 9 hour beers available. 5 ounce samples run $2. Pint prices were solid. The beers were all drinkable, but nothing really stood out. The Doppelbock and Smoked Lager were probably my favorites. Bartender was helpful and pleasant.

No joke about the height of the bar. Perfect place for basketball players. Quiet on a Sunday afternoon. Had a good conversation about immigration in the US with a Texan. 12 beers on tap with lots of unused ones. Has a pool table and great decor. $2 per taster

A nice new brewery in Lexington. A large restaurant-like feel, well-lit and heated, with large TVs over the bar. The bar is huge! Well huge as in tall. It basically came up to my neck (and Iím not terribly short, 5í5") and even when sitting on the bar stools, it still was quite high. They had about 6 house taps, all German styles such as schwarzbier, dunkel, pilsener, radler, kolsch, etc. I got the schwarzbier and it was pretty good, nothing crazy, just a solid example of the style. They also have a bunch of guest taps - again, nothing crazy, when I was there they had Sierra Nevada, Stone 17th, Southern Tier Xmas, Great Lakes Xmas, and Country Boy. They do have food trucks, but I didnít try them. Overall, worth stopping for a beer (especially if youíre into German styles, but also even if youíre not). I donít think itís quite to the level that Country Boy and West 6th are, but it was a fun place.

It was Oktoberfest night and the Friday night. The place was packed. Extremely loud and noisy. The selection was a mixture of Blue Stallion, local and big brewery beers. Blue Stallion beers were good German style beers. Itís hard to say what itís like when itís not that crowded...

Lexingtonís fourth brewery! Went on opening night. Despite the madness, staff handled things well. To date - and Iím writing this during the breweryís first week of operation - six house beers and six guest taps (all quality). Blue Stallion is specializing in German and English beers, unique for Lexington. Beautiful building renovated. When the fifth brewery opens soon, there will be a nice triangle among three of the places to hit in the Jefferson/Sixth/Third st corridor.

PROS: Obviously thoughtful setup- itís always nice to see someoneís dreams come to reality. Classic pub games, German-inspired seating, nice looking bar area; definitely a nice addition to the Lexington beer scene. Service seemed knowledgeable about their beers; waits are long at the moment, but thatís expected on opening night, when I went. They had six of their beers on tap opening night, and six other guest taps. I *really* like the focus on traditional styles here- I like experimental brews as much as the next guy, but the art of making great beer to style seems lost to too many breweries. They are doing some styles very well (Rauchbier, Pils, 70 Shilling). No food, but they had the food trucks there for opening night, which follows the scheme of other local brewpubs. Had 6- 6 oz. pours for about ten bucks, so a good price on the beers as well. They sell the beers in their traditional glassware, including a 1 L glass option for the Munich Dunkel. CONS: Guest taps seemed a bit phoned in (DFH 90 minute, New Holland, etc.). I hope they do some more local/regional guest taps, or at least some interesting ones from elsewhere. I heard several complaints about the menu being hard to read. My good eyes didnít have too much trouble from the front, but the TV display is nearly impossible to view from the side or from any good distance. I didnít see any other place where the menu was posted, besides the internet. A little up and down quality wise; three of the beers were good-very good, but three others were just alright for me, and I love traditional styles (as stated above). Consistency will hopefully come. OVERALL: Lots of potential here, and lots of good going on already. I look forward to many future visits. There is a small parking lot in front of the brewery, and a decent amount of street parking in the area. On a (very) busy evening, I was able to park and get to the door in less than three minutes.
