Founded in 2012, we’re a craft microbrewery located in a historic 100-year-old bakery called The Bread Box on West 6th Street in Lexington, Kentucky. We brew and can our beer out of that location, and it’s sold at bars, restaurants, grocery stores, and liquor stores throughout the state of Kentucky (and across the river in Cincinnati, OH). We pride ourselves on the beers that we make and the impact we have on the communities we’re a part of.Put West Sixth Brewing into our Lexington travel route planning tool to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Lexington.
We focus our brewing talents on a wide variety of beers – we produce and can styles ranging from our flagship West Sixth IPA, to our Pay it Forward Cocoa Porter. In our taprooms in downtown Lexington, we have 15-20 West Sixth varieties on tap, along with occasional special bottle releases from our Sixfold and Barrel-aged series. Now a team of more than 40, we focus on brewing beers with quality and creativity that we’re proud to serve to our friends, and most importantly, that we like to drink!
That said, we measure our success as a company not just on the beer that we make, but also on our social impact in the communities we’re a part of. We support the direct work of nonprofits in our area through programs like our Pay it Forward program and 6th for a Cause. We are environmentally conscious in everything we do (did you know nationwide, 70% of aluminum is recycled and only 20% of glass is?). And finally, we strive to be an awesome place to work, offering discounted CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) benefits, private staff yoga classes, and employee ownership.

West Sixth Brewing reviews
Interesting venue inside an old bakery made the interior unique. Beer was good, but a little heavy on the IPA side. Food from the adjoining eatery was excellent. Very friendly clientele.

Nice little brewpub near our hotel. Typical garage door/picnic table terrace, but it was crazy hot out so we went inside. Service at the bar. Very good variety of beers, there were at least 20 taps, with anything from Mexican lager to Belgian triple. I had the flagship pale ale and the Berliner Weiss, both pretty good, the Berliner especially. I like the fact that you can get food from the restaurant next door, the fried catfish was great. I took a sixer of IPA to go, it's okay. Prices decent. A nice neighborhood brewpub.
One of my favorite breweries! Lots of different beer options and they offer flights. We liked ALL of the beers in our flight which rarely happens. Food is available on-site from Smithtown Seafood. Tons of indoor seating along with a few outdoor patio tables available.
