Pretty kickass beer store. I can’t imagine it getting any better in Lex than this place. Stately English pub vibe. The left side of the store is just a row of beer, with a huge emphasis on foreign beers but a good selection of local and US stuff as well. Even some things that are kinda, you know, whale-ish. On the right side is a bar with 8 taps. Samples are available for a buck each which was pretty cool. Street parking only. Prices a bit high but not unreasonable. Pretty decent selection of glassware. The person working (not sure if the was the owner) was a little pre-occupied with a re-design project, but he was helpful and friendly. No real food but a couple of light snacks. A must stop in Lexington.

Sunday afternoon visit with limited time. Two staff on hand were warm, knowledgeable without condescension. Only 500 miles from home, I’ll be back in April.

Dropped in on a Tuesday at 11 AM. Very draft list of eight beers, evenly split between US and European micros, the majority of which I had never had. Have a large selection of bottles that can be purchased to drink on premises or take out. Picked up some rarities. Friendly and knowledgable staff. Perhaps the best setup for a beer shop imaginable.

The perfect beer shop? For me it is. 8 taps with 2 funky beers when I visited. First thing I saw was a highly allocated and (I’d thought) sold out future whale behind the bar. Good start.
$1 for a 2oz pour of any beer they have, so no thimble taster to rush your decision. I love this place. Made up my mind. Time to hit the shelves.
Bottles are well organized and there is plenty of room to shop - this was a Saturday morning. I’m sure it fills up for events. Might not have the largest selection in the state, but it’s not a giant box liqour store and what they have is almost all good stuff.
Kentucky beer prices can’t be beat and Beer Trappe is no exception.
This place is a must stop. It’s not much of a trip off 75 and well worth the short detour.

I liked the place pretty well. They had a nice selection and the prices wasn’t too bad. i’d say if your in town you should for sure check this place out. I’ve noticed that Lexington has a few more locations to check out before you blow your complete beer budget though.

This is a really nice beer store. Inside is clean and well organized, there is a bar with beer on tap and a nice area to chill. You can order a pint and walk around and shop. Service is great, staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Selection is outstanding, great tap list, chilled bottles for onsite consumption and a huge selection of beers to go. Value seemed really good for the area, especially on bottles to go. I love these types of beer stores, grab a pint and do some shopping. Would definitely come back if in the area.

This place is owned by the same family as Pazzo’s, but it’s night and day different. Staff and beer list are AMAZING! Good atmosphere too. This place is worth the trip itself.

Parking is on the street and can get a little difficult on Friday or Saturday nights. The place is a bar and a bottle shop. Ambiance is really cool at this place. There was two bar tenders at the bar to the right. Lots of good quality singles to the left. Some refrigerated brews at the back of the place. Prices and selection were good, so I loaded up. I will be back to this place. Most bars that sell beer to go have a gross price increase, not this place. Bartender loaded my beers into a nice box and even held the door open for me. They do have eight beers on tap, but haven’t had anything outstanding when I have been by, so I have always passed. Website is pretty accurate on what they have. I plan on going back when in the area.

What a hidden gem in Lexington! This is a serious beer bar with many rarities you’ll be lucky to find anywhere else in a 100 mile radius. There is a long shelf of bottles to go as well as growlers to go and of course a bar for enjoying beer on premise. Prices are fantastic like most anywhere else in this town. There is no food. Contrary to this site, they are open on Sunday which I luckily found out from some patrons at Pazzo’s. The Beer Trappe is the must stop in Lexington.
