Visited right after work on a Wednesday. Big warehouse style liquor store located not far from the interstate. The beer selection consists of two large rows of warm beer, and a walk in cooler of craft and macro. Decent single selection, all warm, and on the high side price wise. They had a couple of Against the Grain sours and Three Floyds Man-O-Awe. In addition to the bottle selection, they featured a growler filling station which had Abita Smitten Golden Ale, Bellís Oberon, Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, Southern Tier 2X IPA, and Sweetwater 420 Pale Ale available during my visit. Decent beer place, though certainly not on the same level as Louisville Beer Store, Old Town or Sergioís. Would have given ★★★ if more of the beer was stored cold.
70 = ★★Ĺ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Updated 2/10/2014: Been going here for a few years now, so maybe I should update my rating- PROS: If itís a regular release in Louisville, youíll likely find it here. They now allow you to break 4 or 6 packs for singles, which is a big plus. This locationís like ten minutes from my house, so convenient for me- I do about 80%+ of my beer shopping here. Sometimes there are people on the floor, sometimes not, but they can usually answer my questions, or find someone who can. Beers are priced very competitively. CONS: Itís kinda warehouse-y, but with so much stuff, thatís how itís gonna be. Service is inconsistent on beer knowledge, but they donít claim to all be experts (thereís a "beer person" there during regular hours, and usually later on Tuesday-stocking day; friendly, approachable fellow). Youíre not going to see anything too rare or hard to find here, and they seem to get new stuff slower than other Liquor Barn locations; Old stock can be a nuisance here, since our area of town isnít a craft beer destination. If itís not dated, you run a real risk with old beer. OVERALL: Iím happy to have this nearby, it meets most of my beer buying needs, but it gets harder and harder to find new things. Not really worth an out of the way trip.

been there on several occassions. popped in last night was looking for something in particular and they didnt have it (great lakes black out stout). but did find something else...decent sized store that has frozen appetizer types of foods. the liquor and wine selections are enormous i have found a few hard to find items in the past but mainly go for the beer. this location doesnt have the best of everything bit suffices in most cases. you can get anything from singles to bombers to 30 packs. the micro selections are pretty good. i can usually browse and find something that will tempt the taste buds. they do fill growlers but this location only has i think 6 tap handles. their other locations carry more and these are a bit pricey. prices are not over the top unlike other stores in the area. they do have a small selection of home brewing supplies as well..its close to home.

Every type of liquor you can imagine is here. It is basically an alcohol department store. Impressive amount of craft beer stocked. Two large isles of imports, and one large isle of USA microbrews. Hundreds of different breweries are represented. And they generally have several different styles of beer for sell from each brewery. They also have a large walk-in beer cooler. Prices are pretty much average for this area. If you are getting a 6-pack of US microbrews, they run on average from about $7.99 to $10.99. Maybe a bit more for the more rare stuff. 22oz. bombers usually run around $4.99 to $9.99. Imports tend to be a bit pricier. Now the negatives: First off donít bother asking anyone there specific questions regarding beer. They donít know. Second, check the dates on your bottles! They donít rotate stock here apparently because I have ended up with expired and skunky beer on way more than a few occasions. If your brew of choice does not have a date on it, just check to see how much dust is built up on the bottles. They apparently donít dust their products off either, so itís a good indicator of how long it has been sitting on the shelf. Third, there are only four beers on tap at any given time. And they are generally larger microbreweriesí flagship fare at that, (Goose Islandís Honker Ale, Great Lakesí Burning River, etc.). Fourth, no mix-and-match on 6-packs. Actually they have signs out telling you not to do so. They do offer some singles at the front of the craft beer isle, but it is usually stuff that is out of date that they are trying to unload.

Located on the south end of Louisville about 1 mile east of the interstate. Beer selection is not that good; it only has the basic craft beers in the area (Bells, some Three Floyds, etc). If you were on the south end, this is the best place in the area. But I wouldnít make it my choice to find craft beers. Service is nonexistant and unintelligent about their beers. The only person I saw that knew their beers was the beer mgr and she was in the office. The only reason I met her was because the cashier misrang my order.

Not as great as the Liquor Barn at Hurstborne but not bad. The best place along I-65. Good selection of beers and a few taps to keep it interesting. Not a bad stop if passing through.

Large warehouse type liquor store. The beer selection is good, but not great. Nothing all that special. Not lacking, but just not great.

Another Liquor barn in Louisville. Older, but somewhat less for beer than the other Liquor Barns in nicer parts of town.
Lots of selection, but watch out for out dated beer. I was burned with that at this location along with the Hurstbourne store.
