From their web site (

Join us for another brewery tour and adventure! We’ll leave Jungle Jim’s at 8:30am, since the first Keeneland race typically begins around 1:00pm. This would make arrival at the Brewery at 10:30am, so everybody can grab a drink and head off with Ken, the Master Brewer of the Lexington Brewing Company for the tour which will last 30-45 minutes. We will then enjoy lunch (and grab another beer, of course). We will depart from the brewery between 11:45- 12:00, allowing everybody a little time to tailgate and play corn hole before the Keeneland races begin. We’ll leave 30 minutes after the last race (approximately 6:00pm) and arrive back to Jungle Jim’s by 7:30pm.
