“high quality local craft beer”
West Sixth Brewing founders Ben, Brady, Joe, and Robin all came to the same conclusion at about the same time – Lexington, KY needs more high quality local craft beer. Since we came from very different backgrounds with diverse sets of experiences and talents, we joined forces to create beer that can be enjoyed not only by craft beer experts, but also by those who just want something tasty to drink after going for a bike ride. Though we all got to this point in our lives in different ways, we strongly agree on West Sixth’s goals. We will provide a taproom and beer garden where the beer list is never the same but that is always local. We will be a brewery that measures its success not only by making great craft beer but also by how it helps our community. We will always strive to protect our environment even if it costs us more to do so. And last, but not least, we all share a desire to create the best beer possible and to be an integral part of building a great beer culture for our great town.
My favorite thing about this brewery is the story behind it. I am worried I may get some details wrong (but you should go and hear for yourself anyway), but the guys who founded West 6th wanted to do a few main things-- 1) contribute to the social economy of Lexington by building a community focused brewery; 2) refurbish a 90,000 square foot old bread warehouse to grow their business and bring in similarly community focused businesses; and 3) start canning their beer for environmental and quality purposes.
West Sixth produces some great beers. Their IPA has quickly become one of my favorites Ohio imports.
It's got a super nice atmosphere inside and out and is a great spot for yoga to watching UK games.
This place has great service and they make great beer. The popularity of their drinks is growing so quickly that Ale8-1 might lose their crown for State Drink. Actually... milk's got that. But we all know milk's only good for melting cereal and lubricating Ovaltine.
