Something brew-tiful is coming to The Burl’s campus in the Distillery District. Say hello to Burl Brew, a new craft brewery that aims to become your new go-to spot for the big game.

“The addition of the brewery will not only bring craft beer to the Burl campus, but also a new place to watch sports. With a fusion of beer and sports, we hope we can get more people interested in what we’re doing at the Burl campus,” said co-owner Jomo Thompson.

Sitting adjacent to the music venue and arcade, Burl Brew will operate as a microbrewery to make its own line of beers, while also featuring a signature cocktail menu.

JR Redmon, head brewer, said he can’t wait to release what they have been working on behind-the-scenes.

“The lineup is a culmination of my skill set that I’ve grown over the years. We have been meticulously brewing this beer and I’m excited to bring something new and refreshing to Lexington,” said Redmon.
