Updated 2/16/2014. PROS: I donít really know how to describe the atmosphere, except that it feels like home. The taproom isnít going to set any standards for aesthetic pleasure, but itís has a welcoming feel. Service is always fairly quick and knowledgeable. Selection usually includes 1/2 their beers and 1/2 guest taps, all for dirt cheap (tops out at about 5 bucks) and you can get half pints for half price. Iíve had some surprising beers here (Four-year aged Expy for 3.25). CONS: Food truck model, so no in-house food; I donít live here. Is in Lexington, and not in Louisville. OVERALL: The one KY brewery that Iíd want down the street; I love this place. Parking on the street around the building, and in a lot out back.

From the outside, at night, it appears that you are in some wharehouse district, but inside, it is a warm friendly place (even though if you pay attention to the walls, you ARE in a wharehouse. The staff is enthusiastic and attentive, the beer is reasonable (if not outstanding), there isnít any food of note. Worth a stop.

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.

Very open space and friendly service. Decent tap selection. Fairly popular. Will return for sure.

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.

9 guests taps, includig 2 from FFF; another 13 CBB taps. A wide range of beers even with just the in house beers. Friendly service and customers. Bar, table and patio seating, with outside seats both in front of the entrance and in back of the pub.

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.

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)
