Located north of Main Street at the end of the popular Jefferson on West Sixth Street. Fresh, local beer made on site and served in a spacious taproom, beer garden, and patio.A great place to kick back, drink some great beer, meet with friends, watch the game, or just hang out.

Excellent free tour with a refillable, free glass. Generous samples and friendly tour guides who love what they do and are proud to be doing it. Great food available next door. One of our favorite things to do in Lexington!

We visited this place with friends. Good variety of craft beer. We went on a free and informative tour with Aaron—great place, several samples offered during the tour with a glass for you to keep.

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...More

Yes, children are allowed at the Brewery for tours and otherwise -- we're quite family friendly. Obviously they can't have any beer, but we have Kombucha and a house-made soda on tap as well!
