A party store with a fair amount of singles, but I donít know how fresh they are. Some growler taps too. Pretty predictable selection though. Service was friendly and answered all if my questions; this just happens to be more of a spirit and wine-oriented place.

Not going to lie, came here looking for bourbon deals since I was on the bourbon trail. Scored some bourbon only sold in Kentucky at a great price so main goal accomplished. I did grab some beer here too, specifically Great Lakes (canít get at home) and some Lexington Brewery brews. Overall it was the hard liquor offerings that awe-struck me, the beer offerings were very good though too. Iím not use to liquor mega-stores so anything bigger then a 7-11 impresses me. So a good rating for existing, deep down I wish one of these were local.

Another Liquor Barn to keep you on your toes. Lots of old products here so buyer beware. I found a four pack of Founders Harvest on the shelf months after the beer was released. And like all Liquor Barns in Lexington, there is still Great Divide (including Fresh Hop!) long after Great Divide pulled out of Kentucky. Still, youíll find something unique that you didnít find elsewhere no doubt.

Easy to get too, but the parking lot is too small. Looked like they had a nice selection of cheeses, sausages, and party favors but I didnít pay close attention. I noticed a humidor but I did not look in it. Looked like plenty of wine (though I canít vouch for the quality), and the beer selection was solid. I personally thought the prices on bourbon were great! I picked up two bottles for what I might have paid double for in Tennessee and would never have been able to find in Alabama. Eagle Rare and 4 Roses were recommended by their staff and they did not disappoint.

Mom and Pop warehouse and deli ambiance. 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. I was not sure if they broke sixers or not, but I was there to get Bells and Stone. Some seasonals seem to stick around longer than in most markets, so this is worth a stop. Upon checkout, I asked if I could get a box, and the cashier rudely pointed to the corner. So I had to drag all my beers over there and box them myself. I can see why the Knoxville crew comes here to stock up, since I live in TN. Good place to get the Bells lineup. Just donít expect any service.

this place wasnt all expected. selection less than the other store, service was horrible. despite being told we could mix singles from six packs and cases, they didnt ring up at the register as singles and cashier gave us the impression we were a bother.

Itís all about selection here. The ambiance, if you can call it that, is like a warehouse. The service is fine if you approach someone, but donít expect a lot of "may I help you" here. But what a huge selection of American micros. One full aisle of that, then another of imports. The imports seemed a bit skimpier, and the Belgian selections was smaller than I expected, but I would certainly make the trip from Knoxville again.

Closest decent selection of beer to Knoxville TN. Not quite what youíll find another hour north in Bellevue at Part Source, but a decent selection with competitive prices. Multiple displays of the saem beer amy make the selection appear larger than what it is, but this place is worth the two hour drive.

This is such an impressive chain. Like a department store for booze (and some gourmet foods) that doesnít forget the beer. About two aisles of US stuff and an aisle of imports, with a separate area kept at cellar temperature. I can spend hours here trying to pick something out.
