Visited early evening on a Thursday. Big, new liquor store located right off of Shelbyville Road. Clean store with the beer located on the far side of the store. Two full racks of warm regional / national / import craft along with a walk in cooler. Many of the regional beers are featured both warm and cold, worth checking both selections. No singles available, though there was a growler station. Solid option on this end of town.

70 = ★★Ĺ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Update of my initial (lazy) review. PROS: You can try a variety of beers on tap here for very cheap ($1-3 for a six oz. pour); they probably have the best cider selection in the city (that iíve seen); good sized food section that offers competitive prices to other higher-end markets in the area (Whole Paycheck, Trader Joes). CONS: You can no longer break six packs here; while similar in size to Springhurst LB, the selection is not as strong or diverse; can be a pain to get in and out of during high-traffic hours; service is present, but doesnít seem especially interested. OVERALL: Probably the second-best LB in town, a distant 2nd to Springhurst. The biggest differences being selection, service and the ability to break sixers (or have singles available).

One of several Louisville locations. Good selection, but nothing that isnít available at other full-service liquor stores. Workers heve never sought to aid me in selection, but, I admit Iíve never asked for assistance. Good, but standard issue.

Typical Liquor barn with slighlty less selection. Beer is the last two rows on the left. Pretty big selection, however nothing special. This kind of place really needs to have all of there six pack selection available iin singles. I donít plan to go back.

Great store. Very big and a great selection to go with it. They donít specialize in beer but they always have a very respectable selection and friendly staff as well as fair prices.

itís big and is usually void of people. No real service to speak of other than the check out line. Good selection of singles and a few hard to find beers. Good value but not cheap by any stretch of the imagination. Iíd go back if I still lived in Louisville.

This is your standard big box liquor store. The beer selection is typical of a chain although I did notice a few bottles of things like Upland Raspberry lambic on the shelves. Compared to some of the other locations the selection is much smaller. Parking may not be a problem but traffic can be depending on the time of day.

Overall this is a decent place to stop for common stuff. However if you want quality imports I would check out the Louisville Beer Store or Kegís Liquors across the river instead. Both are worth the extra distance.

This is the newest of all their stores. Located 1-2 miles west of the interstate. Selection is relatively the same as the Hursbourne and Town Center stores. Help was nonexistant. Was trying to find Dogfish 120 and the mgr said they didnít have any and didnít know when they get some in.

the newest liquor barn. I don;t have the time to go through this place in detail. It is just like all the other LBs, with a large beer/liquor/wine/food selection with some home brew equipment too. A nice stop that brings the LB branch much closer to my home!
