This small place is jam packed with beer, flor to ceiling. Amazing number of special beers that I haven’t seen anywhere else. Half a dozen or so taps, and you can open any beer from the coolers or shelves to drink in the store. Prices were on the high side, but worth it for a collection that obviously took a lot of effort to put together. Oh, and free food just started showing up, I have no idea why. Good vibe with lots of happy and enthusiastic customers just hanging out. A great addition to the Louisville beer scene.

+++ Updated Rating September 2013 +++
Revisited during another trip to Louisville. The selection in this store continues to amaze me - nicely organized and beautifully displayed. The real feature here is the Shelton Brothers availability, if you have a bunch in your market you may not be as impressed as I was. I visited early evening this time and there was a very friendly group hanging around. Both of my visits have had great service, surprised to read so many comments to the contrary on here.

+++ Original Rating April 2013 +++
Visited soon after they opened on a Tuesday. Small bottle shop with a big selection that also features a very well chosen list of 8 draft beers. The store is mostly comprised of coolers and shelves of beer, there is not anywhere to sit and chill, though you can stand at the bar near the check out. The selection here was truly fantastic, particularly Belgians, and Lambics. They had the largest variety of Fantomes I have seen in one place. Service was very friendly, wen out of their way to make suggestions, and was truly engaged with learning about what I was looking for. Once he established I knew a bit about beer, we had a nice geeked out beer conversation. Between this place and Sergios, Louisville is truly a special place to shop for beer.

88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)

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

6 drafts and bunch of bottles but I came away wanting more. New looking place, looks cool and clean. The prices are really cheap, almost a third of what I’d see in Chicago. However, compared to the selection I’ve seen in a lot of other places the selection was lacking. Decent place but nothing special

Louisville Beer Store is on Market Street, just outside of downtown. Great ambiance inside. Really clean and well-presented. Impeccable organization and cleanliness. I didn’t get acknowledged by the staff, though. Prices are also high. The size of the store limits inventory. There is an 8-tap bar which had some good stuff on, but I didn’t have any. They were sold out of everything I was looking for at the time, but I’d be willing to visit again when trying to find something in Louisville.

A very nice store in downtown Louisville. A nice ambiance for a store with a bar that has some nice taps. Impressed by the level of selection as well and the staff was helpful. A nice place to stop.

Nice bottle shop near downtown Louisville. Small but cool ambiance with a ton of bottles and some good drafts, which you can drink (as well as sample) there. Value was good too. The only thing that wasn’t good was the service; the two employees behind the counter were completely disinterested, and unknowledgeable to boot. Not rude; just in their own worlds (and s...l...o...w...). This place would be great if they reconstructed their staff, but it’s still worth a stop.

While I have yet to make it to Sergio’s the Louisville Beer Store is an excellent addition to the local beer scene. Walking in you are hit by shelves of imports including a complete range of the entire Mikeller Single Hop series. Prices seemed fair considering the general price point for most items.

In addition there were five taps. Not your run of the mill choices one was a De Molen. Choices were either full pours or samples including a flight of everything. A cooler in the back has pre-chilled options for things you want to open immediately.

Overall this might be a place I visit again. While they don’t have the same breadth as Keg Liquors across the river they seem to be trying to serve a different market. Both should be successful.

Good selection of Belgian beer. Pretty good selection of german and american beer. Place is a little small. Most of the store are singles, which is good for those who don’t know what they want or when trying new stuff. Most of the stuff is on the shelf and some is refrigerated. You can have a few different brews on draft. Pretty expensive, expect about a 25% increase in price for most items.

The best place to go south of the river for variety - have a nice selection of Belgian and Scandinavian beers especially but also a solid selection of German, Japanese, and US craft beers. Solid selection of Three Floyds and New Albanian beers as well. Service varies - sometimes good, sometimes indifferent. And sometimes the opening time may just be a suggestion. Definitely worth a stop - only a few blocks from Against The Grain and Sergio’s.
