Not a huge place but itís awesome nonetheless. Looks almost like a warehouse as you walk up to it. Small little tap room with big long wooden tables. Had probably 20 or 25 taps. A few guest taps but most were country boy beers. Very fast and friendly service and very reasonable prices on everything offered. You can tell the most important thing to them is brewing quality beer and it really shows. Everything sampled was very respectable. Nice little beer garden/patio outback with hop vines growing up the side. Awesome place, I will definitely be back.

One month old and going strong. Very good Lexington brewery in a warehouse-ish area near campus. DIY aesthetic inside the small taproom. Bar seating and various tables throughout. Maybe half of the 24 taps are Country Boy, the rest are excellent choices from Louisville, Michigan, and Missouri breweries that rival any other place in town as being the best tap list on a given day. Not a bad beer on the board when Iíve gone. They may have to eventually find a new location for a taproom. I predict that they will outgrow this space by yearís end. Sometimes the Habenero Loko food truck is outside (excellent gorditas) and they let you order food in.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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)

Good beers by them and the guest taps. The atmosphere of this place is amazing, and they may not have food but Gastro Gnomes food truck was there when i stopped by and their food is top notch... This is a must go place if you are in lexington...

At the moment this is the only local lexington brewery with a taproom. The 24 taps inside are absolutely beautiful too see and prices are some of the most reasonable in town. They have a nice selection of other local breweries on tap as well, you can easily find a beer from lore or AtG or Cumberland, not to mention at least one or two alltech beers. Nothing shines as much as the house beers though. If you find yourself in Lexington, you should stop by and enjoy a flight or a couple pints.
