Country Boy has a cool little tasting room attached to the brewery. Itís got one TV in it and no much else other than a bar and tables. Other than a small selection of snacks there is no food available though bringing in outside food is more than welcome. The beer selection is very wide, they had over 10 of their own as well as a handful of quality guest taps. The beers I had were pretty solid and with a constantly changing line up and chill tasting room ambiance, Iím ready to come back every time Iím in Lexington.

Visited later evening on a Thursday. Located in a lightly industrial area of Lexington, parking is on the street or in the lots surrounding the brewery. The tasting room is located on the back side of the brewery, and is mostly comprised of bar seating, high tops, and a small shelf bar ringing the outside of the room. There is also a patio located through the taproom. Place was packed, so service was fast and efficient. Very much a regular crowd, everyone was enjoying themselves. 22 beers on tap 12 Country Boy + 10 solid guests. Food truck had a great grilled cheese, and an even greater Archer reference on the tip jar. Certainly recommended.

82 = ★★★Ĺ (Solid place, near the top of the list for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

This is an awesome place. Itís a warehouse, for sure, but features a simple and comfortable layout. They were open already before their posted open time and the bar was already pretty much full of regulars. 24 taps, 17 of which were CB brews during my visit. Flights of 4 are available for various prices and things generally run no more than $2 a sample. Pint and growler prices are also pretty solid. Beers on tap run a wide range of styles, and all 9 I tried were excellent. Bartender was helpful and friendly. No food, but a food truck showed up while I was there (and this on a Tuesday, pretty cool). I may have gone at JUST the right time, but these guys are clearly the best brewery in town, and Iíd wager they could compete on a regional basis. If you have time for just one stop in Lexington, make it here. Iím going back tomorrow.

Being a brewery it was quite interesting that there were lots of beers from the big breweries on taps. Extremely crowded on Friday night. Food truck just outside.

Easy to find location with parking lot in front and back. Block building with taproom door on left that opened to large tasting room with bar on right and tables around outside of the room. Freindly staff which was also the brewer on that day. They had a sampler set of four beers at a time of their 12 and had 12 guest taps. No food, but were flexible about bringing small portion from outside. Enjoyed the visit.

This is the best brewery in Lexington. Located in a warehouse and it has a dim, grungy feel to it. There are 2 large screen TVs behind the bar. You come here for the beer, though. They had about 10 of their own taps, with tasty offerings such as a jalapeno stout, raspberry stout, brown ale with coffee run through a Randall, peach saison, barrel aged brown, etc. All the beers I tried were excellent. Then there are about 10 guest taps with regional offerings including Against the Grain, FFF, Bells, etc. We stayed here several hours because we couldnít leave without trying another beer. Best beer brewed in Lexington, IMO, so it is a must-stop.

Went here twice on our visit to Kentucky, that doesnít happen often. One night was an Against the Grain tap takeover that was killer. Warehouse style steel building with a really nice tap room, tv above the bar. Service was excellent, the bartender must have been a brewer because answered all my question and even told me how they made some of their more interesting beers. Huge selection of beers on tap, around half of them are theirs except for the tap takeovers. There was a food truck outside that had some great food. Prices were really good, both times I had to double take the check at the end of the night, Iím thinking they messed up somehow. This place is killing it, crazy experimental beers, cool people, really kicked back atmosphere, great prices. Best beer related place we went to in Kentucky.

Basically itís a cinder block room with lots of beer. But, that beer is plentiful, top-notch, with a wide variety. The guest taps take about half of the beers on offer and the house beers make up the rest. THere were a few good beers on the guest side I really wanted to try but I couldnít pry myself from the house beers. All were very well made, tasty, and with a large amount of creative thinking. The barkeeper was super friendly and offered up plenty of samples. I stopped in on a monday so no food truck, but we got some take-out from the local burger joint and brought it in- my wife and I loved that they let you do that. One big tv over the bar for gameday. Must hit this place if in Lexington. (Disclaimer: I do previously know a coupe of the owners but tried not to let that cloud my judgement)

A nice spot in Lxington with an open floor plan and an outdoor seating area as well. Service is good, as is the atmosphere and selection (both in-house and guest). No food, but value is great (flights are very reasonable priced). Definitely worth the stop.

In warehouse not far from UK campus. Was there on a Friday night during the summer and was still pretty crowded (probably a zoo during the regular school year). Despite the crowd I was quickly served from the bar (there was waitstaff walking around but didnít try to order with them - seemed way quicker just to walk up to the bar). Nice selection of beers and decent guest taps. Minimal food in pub but had food truck outside. Great place for some nice beers.
