Located downtown, street parking only. Big long bar located on the right side, tables in the back. Dark woods, stately looking. Nice vibe. I was a little disappointed with the tap selection, but they had no locals on tap other than Lexington Alltech which is on tap everywhere. Nice bottle selection, but the one I tried to order was sold out. Bartender was friendly. Prices seemed pretty solid. The back of the store does NOT seem to have homebrew stuff anymore. Itís all tables now. Some brewing buckets are still on the right side but those looked like they were more for decor than anything.

I love this place. Always a great selection of beers on tap to go along with a great selection of bottled craft beers. The selections on tap change on an almost daily basis so there is always something new to try. They also have a great supply of home brewing equipment and ingredients. The introduction to homebrewing class is a must if you are just starting to brew.

i tend to go here more for my hb supplies but i do occasionally stop in for a pint and some bottles to go. Service is usually pretty good and prices are definitely affordable. overall a good place to stop into if you are in town. If you homebrew, they carry all kinds of good hops and yeasts.
*Revised score due to lack of knowledgeable staff since some of the main hb guys that worked there left for greener pastures. if they had more competent staff instead of "look at me" girls it could be so much better.

Been several times and itís a nice place. I keep track of what theyíre offering on tap via FB or Twitter. Usually have a diverse selection of beers available on tap with a decent bottle selection as well. A nice change of pace from Beer Trappe.

Stopped by early evening for a beer, place was dead. Nice bar area up front with a homebrew shop in the back. Service was great, good beer recommendation and things to do in town. Selection was pretty good, diverse tap list and a bit bottle menu. Price were really good on draft beer, bottles were ok. Nice place to hang out and have a beer.

A nice, clean place with plenty of bar seating, along with furniture and tables as well. Out back, there is a nice, shaded sitting area and a double deck- a good place to waste an afternoon. Service was the one bartender when I was there, but they had just opened for the day and business was light. The bartender was friendly but not obtrusive, and enjoyed talking shop with myself and Dfab (who also made the trip). Selection is not the best in town, but the 12 taps feature a variety of styles; mostly regional beers, but not exclusively. They did have chips on hand, but no kitchen; it is my understanding that food trucks show up at busier times, and there are good restaurants in the area if you want to bring food in. No tap was priced over 5.5, which is a nice change from Louisville. Another very good Lexington spot that I will return to in the future.

Downtown beer bar with excellent selection. 12 taps often featuring local beers from Kentucky in addition to other beers distributed. Small homebrew shop as well Food trucks sometimes park outside on weekends and you can order from food from Columbiaís next door.
