Nice brewpub with L-shaped bar and medium sized room with big long tables. Service was good and personable, place was not that busy on a Monday afternoon. Good selection of West Sixth beers. I did not try the food, but sounds good. Good value. Overall I enjoyed my trip and hope to go back.

First stop after dinner. This is a pretty nice and large space with a good vibe to it. I didnt count the taps when I was there, but it was quite a bit more than 10 - maybe 16 plus? Staff was super friendly and happy to talk beer with the customers. Brewing equipment visible behind glass with a grease pencil inventory of what was brewing where - a nice touch. Swag station with glasses and clothes. Several flight options, and individual tasters for 2-3$ A lot of the beer was solid, but nothing really stood out, and a couple were clear misses. If the beer were just a bit better, this place would be really good. OOHH, and they have Crowlers, which is still hella cool to this California boy.

Fairly large place, with the brewery on one end and a large tasting room on the other. L-shaped bar with no less than 17 of their own beers on tap. They do firkin Thursdays which involves tapping a firkin on Wednesday, interestingly enough. Flights of four are available, or you can do their five flagship beers. They’re connected to a fish store that does all kinds of fried seafood - order there and they’ll bring it to you in the brewery. Staff was friendly enough. Growlers and crowlers available, as well as sixers to go. Nice place.

Definitely my top choice among the three breweries I visited within a 1 mile circle of Lexington! Nicest vibe, friendliest and most knowledgeable staff, best beers, best price structure. Collocated with someone kind of food joint next door which is most convenient, too. If I could only go to one in Lexington, this is it. Brewery #685.

West Sixth is just outside of downtown Lexington in a nice, big, inviting corner building. They don’t have any house food besides some pretzels, beer cheese, and popcorn, but they do have a side door that opens to the seafood joint next door. Didn’t try it, but the pretzels and locally made beer cheese (in a plastic resealable container) were good; just wish they could heat the pretzels. Anyway, there were 16 taps, one of which was a ginger ale. All house taps. The standards were there, with some seasonals and some weekend specials. Saturday is a great day to go to get the full gamut of their offerings at any given time. There were 3-4 people behind the bar at any time, and they couldn’t have been any friendlier, especially after getting the surly "service" at Country Boy. It wasn’t overly crowded, but still was full at the bar and had plenty of tables occupied. There’s a big side room with doors that open garage-style, so I could see this being a big Saturday afternoon hangout spot when it’s nice outside. Overall, had a great experience here and am looking forward to many return visits.

The building itself is nice. Very clean and open. The beer is overwhelmingly mediocre. No food but there is a seafood place right next door that will bring your food to you in west sixth so that was pretty cool. Our bartender knew absolutely nothing about beer or how to pour beer for that matter and it took almost 20 minutes for me to get the flight I ordered when they weren’t even that busy. I hope the service gets better because that makes or breaks an experience at a place for me.

First and for most the beers are awesome.. Yeah they have no food, but usually there is a foodtruck around just like all the other breweries in lexington. Wish they had more beers on tap but they do fill Crowlers and Growlers...

West Sixth is a good brewery with a nice open floor plan and excellent service. They keep a good selection on, including their staples as well as some brewery-only options. No food unfortunately, but absolutely worth the stop.

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 I’ve 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.
