Tuesday Brewsday: Blue Stallion Brewing Company - Lexington, Kentucky

A couple of weeks ago, we were in Lexington with Lulu and Bruce, checking out possible wedding/reception venues. So. Much. Fun! Naturally, we stopped at a brewery because, really, can you go to Lexington without visiting one of their many breweries? I don't think so!

Lulu and I chose Blue Stallion Brewing Company. She and Bruce had been there when they lived in Lexington and it's one of her favorites. Gus and I had never been there, but I sneaked a peek at their beer list and knew I would enjoy it (hello, Gose and stout!!).

Tuesday Brewsday: One of my favorite breweries in Lexington, KY - Blue Stallion Brewing Company! Love their Sweet Fudgin' MIlk Stout! #craftbeer #beer #craftbeerlover #craftbeerlife #beerisgood #brewery #wheretodrink #daydrinking #brews #kybeer #kentucky #lexington #enjoytheviewblog #adventuresofgusandkim

Blue Stallion Brewing is located on Third Street, and is right next to the railroad track. Which made Gus sooooo happy, because he is a total train geek, and a train was going by just as we got out of the car. (He rushed right over!)

Their space is pretty big. I thought it was much bigger on the inside than it appeared outside. There is the main taproom...

And another large room with couches and tables and chairs (this photo only shows a small portion of the room - and the sun wasn't cooperating with my photography)...they also have a loft area that I believe they rent out for parties/events. Just off the room with the couches and tables is a room with a pool table.

They have some outdoor seating as well.

Monday through Saturday, Dad's Favorite Deli serves food inside the brewery from 11am to 9pm. On Sunday, Rico's Empanadas (food truck) serves from 11am to around 7pm.

You'll notice in the list of "favorites" below, I only have two listed. There are a couple of reasons for this:
1) I hadn't eaten and didn't want to drink much until I ate (Gus & I were going to Malone's - I'll be  posting a review soon!)
2) Gus guzzled down his flight while I was busy talking and I didn't get a chance to sample any!

So my favorites were both of the beers I actually got to drink!

Lexipolitan - pomegranate lime hibiscus gose (collboration with Ethereal Brewing)

My favorites* (both were soooooo good!):
  • Lexipolitan (Pomegranate Lime Hibiscus Gose - collab with Ethereal Brewing)
  • Sweet Fudgin' Milk Stout
Gus' favorites*:
  • Helles
  • Hefeweizen
  • Pilsner
  • Dunkel
  • Ya Damn Skippy (Porter with peanut butter)

Sweet Fudgin' Milk Stout

I really enjoyed the Lexipolitan and Sweet Fudgin' Milk Stout. Goses are one of my most favorite styles of beer - as is a sweet chocolatey stout - and these two were superb. I'm pretty sure Gus enjoyed his flight because he downed them in record time. Usually I can sneak a taste or two - but not this time!

Right now, their beer is being served in Lexington, Louisville, and Central and Western Kentucky - but their website indicates that it's coming soon to Northern Kentucky! Can't wait!! Also, on May 24 of this year, they started selling 6-packs of their Dunkel and Helles in the taproom. This was just a limited run, so they probably won't last long!

Blue Stallion Brewing

We will definitely be back because there are several beers I still want to try, and Gus is a fan as well! They have a really nice space - lots of indoor and outdoor areas to sit, so if you want a great place to hang out in Lex (that happens to also have great beer), you need to stop by Blue Stallion Brewing!
