When we started West Sixth, after an extensive search, we found what we now call the Bread Box in downtown Lexington. While we originally thought we were just buying a building to hold West Sixth, it turns out the space has had an incredible impact on our brewery. It has been a naturally-progressing, authentic mix-use urban project — with for-profits, nonprofits, and community organizations all working together to make something really unique and special.
When we thought about what was next for West Sixth we considered many different alternatives. But the idea that we kept coming back to — the one that got us the most excited — was the West Sixth Farm.
And after looking for nearly 2 years, we’ve finally found it.
The West Sixth Farm is 120 rolling acres in Franklin County located just 8 minutes from downtown Frankfort, and 35 minutes from Lexington. We’re excited to use this farm for a variety of things — to grow ingredients for our beers, host events, create estate ales, and invite people to experience the farm extension of our urban brewery.
We know you all are curious about how and where we source our ingredients to make the beer that you love because you ask about them at every tour! We hope to use theWest Sixth Farm to both grow some of those ingredients but also introduce you all to what a hop plant is, and the sorts of fruit and spices that can make amazing beers.
