Ethereal Brewing - a new Craft Brewery and Tap Room in the Historic Distillery District of Lexington Kentucky. This brewery is a culmination of our long time dream to brew great beer beyond what we have made over the years for our friends and family.

About Our Beers:

Our offerings will be quite broad, but our main focus will be on brewing delicious Belgian farmhouse and American craft beers. We love these styles because they are by no means limiting on the creative side of things, and they are just darn tasty! We will have the staple beers people expect (with our first three beers being an IPA, a Saison and a Wit), but we are planning on going way above and beyond with an aggressive one-off program with no limitations on what we will brew.

We are very passionate about good beer and that’s why our brewing philosophy is centered on making the best possible beer we can, sparing no expense on ingredients or our process. That’s why we are confident in exploring the funkier side of farmhouse brewing with a dedicated sour program – we feel the timing is right with more and more Kentuckians getting into craft beer and continually searching for something a little different from the norm.

About Our Name and Emblem:

We chose Ethereal because we feel it does a good job of explaining our philosophy and goals for brewing great beer. Ether is the classic 5th element; it was the substance believed to make up the heavens and celestial bodies, and it’s also used to describe the finest or best of any substance.

The symbol in the glass is an alchemical glyph known as Quintessence – in medieval times it was the symbol for Ether and was also used to sometimes describe alcohol as it was considered the best part of wine and ale. We really dig the alchemical roots, since we like to look at brewing as a blurring between science and magic.

  • This is a neat little brewery. They have a delicious beer cheese. The beer cheese uses some of their beer. I do wish they had more food options but the beer cheese is a must! It’s also self service...

  • Great spot for drinks with friends. There's a large outdoor and indoor seating availability. Lots of restaurants around that offer food but minimal food offered at the brewery. Drinks were affordable....  more

  • Great place, great beer, great people. Ethereal helped change this location from a pretty shady spot into a thriving place you can go hangout with the family. I grew up across the tracks and this wasn't somewhere you wanted to be before ethereal cleaned it up.
  • Cool brewery in a cool area. Definitely worth checking out. Brews are tasty!
