Pretty typical taproom for a small microbrewery if you ignore the entrance/exit into the massive package store. Dimly light with decent sized bar, a handful of tables, and a couple of retro board games to keep you entertained. Service was good and helpful. Tons of taps with a good few dedicated to house beers. Only had the house beers, but the guest taps were definitely solid. Overall a solid place and a good place to unwind if the supermarket-sized beer selection outside the door becomes overwhelming.

I stop here weekly. Good tap list with a much better bottle selection at Party Source. Staff is very helpful and have good knowledge.

Awesome taproom behind Party Source with a great tap list including some in-house offerings and an extensive guest draft list. You can also buy any bottle in the store and have it quickly chilled on-site and served to you for the retail price of the bottle. Service is great and the atmosphere is nice, especially on warm-weather days where you can sit outside or play a game of cornhole. No food yet, but food trucks do come by some days (usually weekends). A must-stop for tickers, and you can load up on carryout from Party Source.

Cool tap room in the very back of Party Source (or the front, if you enter from the back like Iíve taken to doing). Decor is pretty cool and modern, definitely a stark contrast from the brutality of the shelves upon shelves of the store area. In the atap room there is a huge window that displays the brewing operation. Service is always very good in my experience, but I avoid busy hours. Knowledgeable, patient, and helpful. 42 taps, with a pretty decent selection of beers, although some of the import kegs taste like they have been sitting around for longer than they should have. Tasters are all individually priced, though kind of expensive... They vary between $3-5. A flight of 4 costs $12. That can be a drag. Overall, though, this place is a true gem for the city. The selection is great, and the house beers are pretty solid, and there is a sea of bottles to choose from when youíre done at the big lot liquor store attached.

An interesting venture, in the back of Party Source, the best stocked beer store in the area. Service was quick and efficient, with the Ei8ht Ball brews samples @ $2 each. The selection is mostly on tap, but it is really good stuff. Food is not the specialty here, good beer is. Good place.

Same big easy parking lot as The Party Source (TPS). The place is in the back right of TPS on the left. Really like that this place is inside the TPS. Big long bar with large selection of taps. Nobody else was there on a lazy Saturday afternoon. Really enjoy the sampler option.

In the very back/right corner of the store. Large bar with a dozen or so table. Huge tap list with their own beers and guest taps. Definitely a great stop in combination with stocking up at Party Source.

Great. Small footprint in the back of one of the biggest liquor stores Iíve been in. To say the food is limited is an understatement, but damn the cheese dip and pretzle were great. Beer selection was 41 taps with no crap. Staff was freindly and helpful. I would be a regular if I lived anywhere near here.

Stopped in on a Saturday around 2 PM. The parking lot was about half full, but I assume itís more than sufficent. This place is located right off the interstate, so itís really easy to get to. I think the exit ramp was put there just for them, Ha! This place is located in the far back right corner of the Part Source. Lots of diamond plate and black and white checker decor with several big televisions that show the current draft list. 40+ taps and all with great beer. There were 6 Ei8ht Ball beers on draft, a few Kentucky and Ohio beers, and several Belgian, Dutch, and English beers on draft spanning many styles. What brought me here was a De Struise tap takeover including a Black Damnation and several others Iíve not seen available ever before. The service was great. three bartenders were kept hopping by customers and once I got my first set of tasters, my glass of water was kept full and was checked in on a few times throughout my sampling. I stuck to samplers, but the full pours I saw were in proper glassware, so that was pretty cool. They had several brewery specific glasses available, Cantillon, Orval, Rochefort, and especially their own Ei8ht Ball glassware. I liked that those came in several shapes. Pricing was decent. Of course, that could always be lower, but I think pricing was more than fair. The $25 I paid to try the 8 De Struise beers was great, especially considering if I were to have to buy a bottle of each one, it would be north of $300 (just a guess). I will definitely come back here. This place has a ton of potential, and apparently they already have the buying power to maintain this level of greatness.

An awesome beer bar in Bellevue, KY. One of the best selections Iíve ever seen with a focus on international beers such as Trois Dame, To Ol, Brewdog, Omnipollo, Magic Rock, Amager, Mikkeller, Evil Twin, Yeastie Boys, etc. They also feature 5-6 Ei8ht Ball beers, brewed right in house (interesting beers including a tasty APA and awesome coffee imperial stout). The American beers are less impressive but include Rogue, Brooklyn, Southern Tier, Left Hand, Uinta, Bells, Deschutes and locals such as Rivertown and West 6th. Overall, if you come here there will be at least 10 beers youíve never had and really want to try. They offer pints, 4 samples for $12, and $20 for 8 samples. Slightly pricy but a lot of their beers are imports. The location is a bit odd- right in the back of The Party Source, a giant liquor store (with an awesome craft beer selection itself, especially international beers). The bartender was slightly awkward but knowledgable and even gave us some complimentary snacks. Overall this place canít be missed. It is pricey but itís one of the best selections of international beers sold in the US. Ei8ht Ball beers are pretty tasty too ;-)
