Took the tour with the brewery and distillery. It's a newcomer to distilleries in comparison to the others in the area. They do make some great beer and good bourbon.

We paid to take the brewing and distillery tours. I was surprised that the brewing tour only included trying the beers they brewed. The distillery tour did show the room where they distilled the spirits, stored and bottled them. I was disappointed at the overall tour or lack of a thorough tour. I did try the Town Branch Bourbon and... More

We had a company outing at this distillery while in Lexington. It was really fun. Everything I tasted was good and I'm not a beer drinker. Saved most of my tokens for the whiskey, so smooth! Definitely recommend! Dale was a great tour guide! Melissa

On my first visit to Lexington my friends brought me here and I really liked it, so when I returned this year, I asked them to go once again. Why? Very interesting tour, but most importantly it is a place where you can taste delicious beer and bourbon! And both are really good! Although you get tickets for samples, I... More

Enjoy the tour learned a lot about bourbon and ale making and got to taste very good Bourbon ale and a bourbon and coffee liqueur. Bought a bottle of the liquor to bring home.

The "brew-stillery" tour was unique and awesome. The tour guide was very entertaining. He asked questions of the group, trivia style. I appreciated the fact that upon giving the answer to some of the questions, he added, "I didn't know this before I worked here." This told me that he worked hard to get all the facts down. And there... More

We were driving through the area, and decided to stop and take a tour. We have been to MANY distillery tours, and wanted yet another stamp in our Bourbon passport. The video to start was interesting, but the tour was something we had never experienced. First, you get the beer tour, and then the distillery tour, which is something unique.... More

First came across Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale a couple of years ago and it's one of my favorites. Since we were passing through the Lexington area, we stopped to tour the brewery. The tour was a lot of fun. You get to sample some of their beer/spirits as part of the tour, but it would have been fun even without... More

The tour was great and the staff great. Save two tickets for the bourbon section of the tour because it's easy to spend them all on their delicious beer!
