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.

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.

I love LBS. I could spend hours in the store trying American and import craft beers alike and I in fact have done this many a time. The staff is excited and passionate about beer and it shows. There is unfortunately not a lot of room in the actually store but that’s ok because the experience more than makes up for it.

The place has a nice selection of American and import beers. They have a beer tasting bar where you can sample some of the beers on tap. Thought their prices were high but they have to pay the rent somehow.

One of the best places to get good beer in Louisville. Most of the time you have to stand around or go sit out on the patio if you want to stay and drink but I’m ok with that because the beer is good and the service is good. There’s always someone to help give suggestions of what to order or buy. This place gets stuff no one else in the area does. If I’m ever out at a big box store and someone can’t find what they want I tell them to go to LBS. Also, great events on the back patio like music, food, brewing demos and even a fire pit for the chilly months.

Dusty bottles all around. Could see FFF’s was very popular there as those bottles were nice n fresh ha! Some of the "other" beers were quite dusty. Old beer? No thank you. Prices were a tad higher then I’m use to for most. Love the idea just wish it was busier so they could rotate stock better, not their fault. Will 100% return their next time through Kentucky. Ah their import beer selection is worth the trip alone.=)

Quaint little bottle shop w/8 tap bar housing loads of great craft and imports. Taps are always rotating and the atmosphere is very inviting. Lori and Tyler have a gem of a beer stop with the Louisville Beer Store.

Love the selection and the concept. Unfortunately, the service suffers as the people serving love talking about beer to the point of overlooking customers at times.

Love the ambiance of the place. Lori and Trevor are the very knowledgeable proprietors and Daniel who works many nights is equally capable of helping customers find that perfect beer.

Interesting place. It’s like a beer store/bar hybrid. Not a massive amount of bottles but an excellent selection and what they do have is of high quality. Three Floyds in Kentucky? Surprising. Very good import choices. I get the impression that if it gets distributed in the area then they do their best to get it. Quite a few taps with lots of upcoming beer events listed on the chalk board. Limited seating and the place itself is small so I can see this being an issue. Very clean and well organized. Street parking and I don’t know enough about Louisville to say whether the area is okay or not. Very helpful and enthusiastic staff. Spoke with one person for a bit (Lori?) who clearly had passion for beer and came across to me as very knowledgeable. I thought the prices were very good for a bottle shop and the fact that you can open anything there for just a $1 increase is a great deal. Overall I think this is a pretty cool place with a formula for success.
