I liked the place pretty well. They had a nice selection and the prices wasnít too bad. iíd say if your in town you should for sure check this place out. Iíve 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 Pazzoís, but itís 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 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.

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.

Maybe the start of the craft revival in Lexington. I first came here only a couple weeks after it opened, and since then, theyíve done a good job keep beers on the shelves and interesting taps going. Unfortunately, some of the more interesting taps are being hyped online, making it impossible for everyday drinkers to get in and have some, but still, a must stop in Lexington.

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.

(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.

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..

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 youíre likely to become a regular.

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 Mephistophelesí 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.
