Visited here around lunch time on a weekday. Very nice facility with ample parking for cars and bikes. Decor is a mix of historic and modern, making it functional and clean yet with some added ambiance. 3-sided bar, a number of tables and plenty of standing room. Adjoining seafood restaurant can provide food for West 6th customers. Good variety of beers on tap. Growlers (as cheap as Iíve ever seen) and growler fills available to go, as well as 3 types of canned beer. A pretty good hike from center city, but free city bus service to the area is available at times, and the drive is short and easy.

Stopped by here on a Tuesday, between 3-6. Love this place. Itís kind of in a suburb. Visually, itís beautiful. Big open space, and a huge brewery behind the scenes. Seems really well-organized, especially for a 2 year old place. Relatively large facility. Nice mildly higher-end feel to the taproom, with like 14 beers on tap (11 new to me). Apparently experimental kegs get tapped on Wednesdays, Firkins on thursdays. The bartender serving me (Kelly?) was super-nice, and extremely knowledgeable. Very impressive beer knowledge dropped by her. Rest of the staff was rockstar too. Matt, and a guy with killer dreads... One of the volunteers even offered me a place to stay for the night in case I needed it. Tasters were between 2-3$ a piece, mostly $2. Most of the pints are $4.50, which is super competitive compared to Cincinnati breweryís prices. Awesome, awesome place. Will stop by again any time I get a chance, especially if this is what the tap list usually looks like... My first time stopping by here, they only had 3 beers on tap (during the Magic Hat controversy). 11 new beers for me to try is a major win. Awesome, fun time here!

Visited early evening on a Thursday. Large place, shiny new brewery located in a residential area. I entered through the side, which appeared to be an event space, then you enter the tap room proper and there are two large bars, and high tops and tables throughout. Also a big, nice patio wrapped around. The brewery itself is visible, and also looked shiny and new. 13 West Sixth beers on + a firkin (which seemed to be an every Thursday event). Service was prompt and friendly, and the crowd was buzzing and fun. I had the pretzel and it was pretty stale. Overall, fun place to visit.

Kinda stuck on the end of a residential neighborhood. Nice vibe in the neighborhood. The inside is not as nice. It kinda feels like a mall food court with the white tile walls, the acoustics, and well, the restaurant thatís attached. Didnít try the restaurant, but it looked like a fast food seafood joint which could be pretty awesome. It was busy but the servers were nice enough. They have a flight, but they pick it for you. They were a bit flexible with me, though, which is cool. Beer ranged from slightly above average to very good. Definitely worth a stop.

The most interesting aspect was that for food, you go outside to an independent food truck for "food truck" food. The beers are decent, on a similar level to Country Boy, with the exception to their IPA (which is really good). Service was good, if not enthusiastic, and the palce absorbs sound well, even when crowded, so conversation is comfortable. The ambiance is big windows, but dark inside with only accent lighting (which makes it hard to write ratings. Worth a stop if you are in Lexington.

A great brewery in Lexington. Very large space - there are 2 areas that I saw, one more catering to groups with a couple rows of long benches, and the second was the bar and then a bunch of tables. High lofty ceilings. The place was decorated nicely for Christmas. There are a few TVs, but you have to turn around to watch if youíre at the bar. They had around 8 taps with some interesting beers such as a lemongrass wheat, smoked mild, IIPA. They do have special experimental beers on during the week I think, but had run out by the weekend. Minimal food - pretzels and cheese, but they do have food trucks occasionally (not when I was there on a Sunday early afternoon). The bartenders were very friendly (admittedly this was when there were few customers) and gave us a few samples. Pricing is cheap - especially the swag ($2 pint glass?!?). Overall, a great stop. I think the beers were not quite as good and interesting as Country Boy, but theyíre a close second.

A roomy and inviting local brewery in a nice part of town. Friendly staff, nice selection of West Sixth taps, plenty of room to sprawl out. I like the rocking chairs and local flair.

Nice sized brewpub in quiet residential area - quite a bit of seating, especially outside. Had 5 of their own beers on tap (just ran out of a 6th on my visit). Food truck outside or you can order delivery. Pleasant place.

West Sixth has done a real nice job with the old bread factory- very clean set-up, good seating with reclining seats, nice beer garden area with large windows into the brewery area. Plenty of places to sit. Service is friendly, and answered my questions about their beers, etc. without too many issues. They now typically have around eight beers on tap- all their own beer. Their hoppier beers, especially their excellent IPA, are the main draw here, but they do other styles in an able manner. One issue I have is with their flights being pre-determined- you can build a custom flight, but itís a few dollars more. W6, like Country Boy, favors the food trucks, and like CB often has Habanero Loko, which is kinda incredible. They also have spicy pretzels/beer cheese on site, which is quite tasty. They sell cans of their IPA and Amber to go for about 10 dollars/sixer. Iíd like to see a bit more variety in their regular tap offerings, some more guest taps (especially from the state/region) but otherwise these guys are establishing themselves as a regional favorite.
