Craft beer store meets craft beer bar... Excellent concept! Eight regularly rotating taps and the areas best selection of rare import and American craft beer coupled with a very knowledgeable staff make the Beer Trappe a must-visit for any beer enthusiast passing through Lexington. A lack of food should not deter potential cutomers, as their store policy encourages outside food, even keeping to-go menus from nearby resturants behind their bar. Give this place a shot, and you’re likely to become a regular.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This is a great beer bar and bottle shop rolled into one. No wine or liquor means more focus on having an awesome regularly rotating tap selection. Bottle selection is almost entirely single bottles and very nicely arranged. They also have a respectable glassware selection. Not a lot of room inside but enjoyed sitting outside at one of their 4 tables. The staff was very friendly and took the time to safely wrap the glasses I bought. Had Dreadnaught on tap and purchased bottles of Arctic Panzer Wolf and Breakfast Stout to go. A must stop for anyone 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..

I was in Lexington for the World Equestrian Games and wanted to get some beers not available in NC. I picked up some Dogfish Head World Wide Stout, Avery Mephistopheles’ Stout, and Avery The Beast. While there I had a few glasses of the beer on tap. It was a very pleasant experience and the people were willing to talk beer. When I asked about a chocolate beer on the shelf, they told me that they had found it rather disappointing. It was refreshing that they were more interested in me getting a good beer rather than just increasing the amount I was buying. I would definitely return here on my next trip to Lexington.

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.

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.
