About Us

We are Chuck and Jon Adkins, a father and son team that started brewing about 4 years ago. Our hobby started with a suggestion from my wife. She made a comment about how we should go to a brewing class and that she would pay for it. And so it began; what started as a small hobby quickly became an obsession. We can’t seem to brew enough beer. We love to brew.

Bottom of the Barrel started as dream when we couldn’t find the specific ingredients we needed to brew a special recipe that we had. The more we talked about opening Bottom of the Barrel the easier it was to move forward. Our dream is to be the largest homebrew shop in Lexington KY, where you can get whatever you might need to make your favorite beer, wine, and cheese without having to substitute ingredients. We also want to provide a place where people who love to brew can just hang out. We look forward to hanging out with some new and old friends while talking about brewing.

We currently teach hands on classes every Saturday at noon. Our classes are designed to get participants involved in the brew process. We also can teach individuals on a one on one basis with an appointment. Gets some friends together and let us teach a group how to brew. Contact us and let us know how we can meet your needs.
