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.
West Sixth Brewing Co.
I really like taking a look at these beers at different temperatures. It really is shocking how good (or not good) some beers can taste at different temperatures, and this really demonstrates (at least to me) how a bad first impression can be as simple as a bad serving temperature!
The second beer in the West Sixth High Gravity Series is Snake Eyes Imperial Stout

This beer, a long time fan-favorite in our taproom, and one of our first ever “seasonals” when we opened the doors, is a beautifully balanced Double IPA.
An American Brown Ale (Description provided by company)
The West Sixth Christmas Ale is spiced ale with aroma of cinnamon and nutmeg with a sturdy malt backbone that will hold up to the chilliest of nights.
The American IPA has been more popularized in the last century than any other style of beer in the world.
This beer, known in the taproom as the Bryan Ave Belgian Blonde, is light in color, but deep in flavor and aroma with hints of spiciness that come from the Belgian-style yeast that is used when brewing the beer.
This fourth beer offered year round in cans is a celebration of malt. Dark and rich with overtones of coffee and dark chocolate, it’s chewy and yet smooth at the same time. Brewed at almost imperial porter strength, we add over 60 pounds of the best cacao nibs in each 40 barrel batch.
