Overview: Chuckís Wine and Spirits is aptly named: if I were shopping for either wine or spirits, this would be a premier stop, especially regarding their wine. Nearly the whole right half of the store is dedicated to wine, and even features a small lounge area with sofas and such to sit and read; also a tasting bar (seemingly for wine) in the back right of the store. Probably one of the nicest wine sections Iíve seen in the state. If youíre wanting Sake ticks, thereís a shelf section dedicated to them as well, with a variety of price options. I didnít use any sort of service much; only to ask if they stocked any Tennessee beers (they donít) but I was approached and asked if I needed assistance, so kudos for that. So, to beer... their selection reminds me of Liquor Barn, maybe a little better than the average Liquor Barn. What concerns me is the age of some things in stock that simply arenít meant to age. 2011 bottles of Czech imperial pils, for instance. Otherwise, you arenít likely to find anything here that you couldnít find at stores in Lexington or Louisville. Price-wise, Iíd imagine they were competitive in the area. PROS: Lots of beer to choose from; nice wine/sake section. CONS: Questionable age on some items (makes you wonder about the stock at-large); no growler station. OVERALL: Worth a stop if youíre coming into Bowling Green from TN, but not so much if youíre coming in from KY metros. A limited amount of parking on premise, and close to I-65.

Typical beer store - probably 200 different choices with a lot of variety, but nothing I havenít seen before. Very small selection of singles, with no particular theme. The "beer guy" was very willing to assist, and probably knows his stuff. I didnít see any signs of taps or growlers. Overall, good.

Stopped by here to check out the selection. Pretty good sized liquor store with lots of beer. Good service all around. Selection was great, not the best we saw but they had some stuff we didnít see anywhere else. Great prices too. Check this place out if youíre in the area.

This store has sadly gone down hill. They used to have a great selection of beer, however their selection has declined, and their prices have gone up.

Located not too far off of exit 22, this is a popular place for us Nashvillians to get out of market beer. For starters, they have Bells, FFF, Founders, Goose Island, etc. Second, they bring in limited release and rare kegs for growler fills. This is because Blake, and avid beer enthusiast himself, has established friendships with the craft beer community in the region. You call ahead and show up when he is working, heíll treat you right. The selection can vary at times because Blake moves a lot of beer, especially the rare and limited release stuff. Sometimes you have to ask for stuff because itís not on the floor. Great store with great people running it.

Checked out this place while I was in Bowling Green for a Fire Department recruit meeting, and I was like a kid in a candy store. I was here for about and hour and a half and left about $150 bucks poorer. Got some Three Floyds Arctic Panzer Wolf, Sam Infinium, a few Great Lakes, a few Brooklyn beers, Bells 10,000, Sierra 30th and Beer Camps, Goose Night Stalker, Stone Oaked Bastard and some Dogfish. Staff didnít seem to be around to help but, then again, I didnít ask for any. Also, I found a Makerís Mark whisky blooper pack that I hadnít heard about and Makerís cigars which Iím always trying to find. Overall, it was awesome! I canít wait for my next meeting in BG so I can drive the 4 hours and come back with more treasures.

I drove in from Nashville with a buddy because iíd heard the rumors and had met Blake, their beer guy, at a tasting. This place is by far way better than any store in TN, and any store in South Florida.
they have beer on tap to fill growlers and a nice 100+ year old bar in the back where they do tastings and events. You can get just about any beer they have either refrigerated or warm, and they sell everything in singles or packs.
Huge display case of glassware at great prices (most under$5) is also a big plus.

Drove up to Chuckís from Nashville. Thought they had a good beer selection. Lots of different beers not found in TN. Staff was very helpful and showed us some good beers kept in the back. Had good selection of beers found in coolers and a larger selection found on the shelves. Picked up some Bells Batch 10,000, Expedition Stout & 3rd Coast Old Ale, Founders Breakfast Stout, Backwoods Bastard & Old Curmudgeon, Three Floyds Arctic Panzer Wolf, Dreadnaught IPA & Behemoth, Great Divide Old Ruffian, Dogfish Head/Three Floyds Poppaskull, also had selections of Great Lakes and Goose Island as well as Anchor Old Foghorn. You can make your own six pack as well as buy beer glassware. Was a good trip and I will go back.
