This is one of the best beer stores Iíve been to on the east coast. I have been looking high and low for Flying Dogís Wild Dog Gonzo and they had it. Damn I should have got more than one bottle. Only 5,000 made. Anyway they had a pretty good selection of beer to choose from and a first for me, a fill your own growler station with about 7 beers on tap to choose from.

Chain liquor store vibe, but similar beer aisle layout to the Lexington store. Lots of domestics and regional beers, including Bells, Stone, Barrel House, Schlafly, Atwater, New Holland, BBC, Dogfish Head, etc. Belgian and European selection was a little disappointing, but not terrible. Lots of good wines, liquor, and party supplies too. However, I thought the Lexington store had a few more goodies. For example, a bigger selection of Bells (hopslam, consecrator, etc.).

I swung by here to pick up Stone, Brooklyn and some other things not available in Wisconsin. I only spent around $30 but could have done much more damage easily. Selection was decent, ranging from locals (Kentucky Ale and BBC) to further reaching brands like Stone, Brooklyn and Bells. Prices were very reasonable and the fact there is no tax helps even more.
This is definitely one of the must stop locations in town. Getting to it should be pretty easy as it is right off of I-64.

Great big barn of a a store as the name implies. Big selection of booze & wine. Food stuffs, too. But I was there for the beer. Very nice selection, focusing mainly on the micros. I was hoping for more regionals, but much of what they had is available in the Chicago are, my stomping grounds. Still, I managed to do some damage to my wallet. This is definitely a beer shop worth visiting.

Excellent selection of microbrews and imports. Good selection of Goose Island which was $5.99 for a 6-pack. Also, Rogue, Stone, Bellís and Dogfish Head are well represented. However, there was no Three Floyds to be found which is supposely available in Kentucky? If you need service your kind of on your own unless you hunt someone down. Also, I was impressed with their Bourbon selection.

Thereís a huge amount of beer here which is mostly comprised of micros. The import selection is good, but not anything amazing. Fine with me, because I usually prefer to try some regional stuff anyway. I was like a kid in a candy store here, I couldnít come to Louisville without stopping at this place. They even have draughts with which one can fill growlers to go. I spent over eighty dollars on a full shopping cart of beer and still left behind some brews I wanted to try.

I was more impressed with the amount of alcohol related items in this place than the actual beer selection (which is above average). There is a few aisles of breads, olives, cheeses and sauces to shop. Hard to find foods too. In the back are two aisle of party supplies (everything from playing cards to party hats). If you like wine, there are probably five aisles, arranged by style to browse. Wine Spectator ratings are attached to help. Hard liquors, mixers and glassware are in the next two aisles. To top it off, the back wall contains homebrew supplies and literature. I easily spent an hour just wandering around.

This could quite possibly be the weirdest place Iíve ever been to. Itís a supermarket setup thatís really dark with non-matching fluorescent lights. The ceilings are very low too. Like 10 feet. I donít like the feeling at all. Their slogan is "the ultimate party source." They actually have aisles with confetti and plates and decorations and shit like that. They have a freezer section of frozen finger food and stuff. They have a good selection of cheese and various other foods that youíd eat while drinking. You go through all of this before seeing any booze. Lots of wine and liquor. Beer selection is very good. Lots of domestics and some rare finds, e.g. those giant magnums of Arrogant Bastard ale. Good selections, from Rogue, Stone, Great Lakes, Goose Island, and Dogfish Head. Nice amount of Kentucky and Southern beers. There is a large beer cave with most of the six packs chilled. The European beers selection is pretty cruddy. Nothing that is outstanding, except Rochefort 10 and 8. Singles are of old beers and none of them good. Prices are quite cheep. Service was bad. Checkout guy was impolite. And had no idea where to look for a beer without a price sticker on it. When I found it for him he said, "Five dollars for a little bottle, hope itís a good beer." What a douche. It was a Thomas Hardyís 2004. He was right, though. It sucked

Nice selection of beers including Stone, Goose Island, and Avery. The import side is the standard stuff. Some single are available but mostly old stock. For Kentucky, I was happy with a few finds. A nice glassware selection including Stone RIS, Arrogant Bastard, and Santa glasses.

Good selection of beers with a solid selection of foreign beers. Have a few taps for growler fills - can sometimes find some nice local beers. Also with a walk-in cooler - some extra beers there they donít have outside. Overall a nice store.
