This is a beer store with 8 taps, only one of which was local, several regional. Bottle selection is extensive, especially the Belgian stuff. Not many local beers, though - maybe there just arenít that many to be had. Staff was friendly.

(Visited 09/2010): The Beer Trappe is a nice little store/bar on Euclid Ave on the east side of Lexington, not too far from UK. There is street parking right in front of the store. The inside is relatively small and well organized, with shelves of beer (many singles) running the length of the left side. There are also smaller shelves in the middle part of the store, and a fairly small bar on the right side that seats just a few people (and was at capacity on our visit). There is a collection of tap handles behind the bar as well. Bottled beers range in the hundreds, with lots of craft brewers represented domestically and as imports. Some highlights included the Mikkeller Single Hop series, Bellís, Schlafly, Stone, Dogfish Head and many more. In addition there are around 8 taps from brewers like Bellís, Flying Dog, Stone and Schlafly. Service was decent on our visit. The guys behind the bar didnít really go out of our way to help us but granted they had their hands pretty full with the bar patrons. They were friendly enough at checkout. Overall this is a worthwhile stop for anyone in Lexington.

What a hidden gem in Lexington! This is a serious beer bar with many rarities youíll 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 Pazzoís. The Beer Trappe is the must stop in Lexington.

Pretty kickass beer store. I canít 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.

Middle for the block on Euclid with street parking all around. Short narrow bar against back wall with eight taps. Freindly staff with good knowledge of beers on tap and on wall. Afternoon before basketball game so it was not real busy and found a seat at the bar. Very good selection of bottle beers for drink in or carry out. I found 7 new beers. They did not have food but can be found in area and carried in. Couches in the front for group drinking and general gathering. Will visit agian when in area..

Visited early in the afternoon. Street parking is available at meters. Did not look around for free parking. During my visit, we were the only folks in there. The person working asked if we would like help with anything, but I was fine just looking around myself. I found some nice belgian beers I ended up buying. Prices seemed higher than I would have expected, but that was really only on the beer I ended up buying. That could just be my expectations being off. The feel of the place is like a small European pub. Kind of dark with a small bar. 8 taps. A few tables to sit at with your beer. Lots of glassware is available here, as well. One thing that caught my eye was all the old beer signage. I really wanted to ask if they would be open to selling some of it, but never did ask. Iím sure they arenít. Anyhow, this place is pretty cool and is a worthwhile stop. Itís a couple miles outside of downtown in a more suburban looking part of town. I would like to come back again sometime.

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 havenít 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.

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

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.

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.
