West Sixth makes great beer and has created an open, bright, inviting space to enjoy your brews. Everyone is friendly and if you are hungry, grab a bite at Smithtown Seafood that shares the space. They often host community events like yoga in the back room or running club night. They are known for donating a portion of their proceeds... More

We took a one hour tour, which was free and included a glass for 4 generous samples. They are eco-friendly and give back to the community in multiple ways. Their beer is excellent, and the attached fish restaurant is also tasty. A great way to spend an afternoon!

YOU guys are nailing it! I was fortunate enough to be able to try 3 different beers in our short visit and all were absolutely delicious. Thanks for the nice break from our long drive. If I find myself in this area soon, I know exactly where to find some good brews.

Whether on our way back from Red River Gorge or Nashville we find a to detour through West Sixth for a beer. High quality beer with a great selection. Family friendly including dogs. Grab a beer, a board game, and a burger from next door and enjoy. Love this place.

Whatever mood you're in, this place has something to make it great. The barreled beers are unique and quite the experience to taste. Not in the mood for beer? Kombucha on tap. No really, it's legit. Personal favorite beer though is the cocoa porter. If you're hungry they have a side shop that serves sandwiches freshly made when you order... More

Being a Lexington native who has purchased and enjoyed every west sixth beer found at my neighborhood grocery store/liquor barn, I thought it was time to take a tour of the brewery itself. The tour is offered twice a day on the weekends and not to mention, completely free... which is so generous. Before the tour I stopped at Smithtown... More

I don't want to get in over my head on this review, but baby..this is great beer! This place is comfortably open and spacey. No loud music! Great place to gather and converse. There is a fish market eatery on site, and food trucks at times. Beautiful location, and great staff. I just want to give a shout out to... More
