Visited during a trip to Louisville. What a place. Met Sergio upon our entrance and spent most of the time in conversation with him about his bar, travels and beers. Unbelievable selection of beers from the tap list to probably the largest selection of beers Iíve ever seen. The best part you donít need a book, you just walk thru the entire bar and check it out for yourself. You can drink anything there or take anything away. Most beers are at prices that make sense regardless of their limited nature or rarity. Overall, one of the best bars in the country due to the selection and Sergioís knowledge of what he has. A must visit location as one of the best in the country hidden in a suburban area of Louisville.
I have to rate this place after visiting, not that it will impact the score that much with all the fake ratings. Anyway, itís a hole-in-the-wall a little east of downtown Louisville. It doesnít appear to have been cleaned in years, the glasses (decorations, not ones they use) are dusty, the place smells like a deep fryer, and it has carpets, which is always a bad idea for a bar. The shelves sag in the middle. Itís a dump, and not quite the kind I was expecting, but it has its charms. The bottle selection is ridiculous, in good and surprising and strange ways - lots of unexpected treats, but also things like 2007 Goose Island Imperial IPA for $10. The tap list is excellent, but I wondered about the age of the kegs after one of the things I tried tasted at least a few years old. Prices are high in general, but I guess thatís what happens when you buy things at retail price and have to mark them up again (there are definitely things for sale that donít get distributed in Louisville). We didnít eat here, which Iím told was to our benefit. The fryer smell, mustiness, and major hoarding issues were enough to keep my wife from ever coming back, but I will definitely be back here from time to time to try something unexpected. Such a weird place. I donít know how to rate it, really.
The selection is the one redeeming quality of this place. Sergio is a great guy to talk too as well. Unless its him, my service has always been lacking, to the point of rudeness. The place does not look clean at all, and its a mystery to find the first time you go. Pricing leaves a lot to be desired as well.
Surreal, in a way....first off, unless you know itís there, good luck.....probably the most non-descript place youíll ever go to....a tiny, little white note on a black glass door that says "Sergioís".....thatís about it.
Walk in, a small tap area, tables, a small kitchen....just keep walking and wandering....like touring a Ripleyís museum....little tidbits everywhere......coolers, refrigerators of various makes, little rooms full of coolers, shelves, boxes.....and itís ALL BEER.....itís dark, cold and hot spots, just keep opening fridge doors and peering in coolers.....phenomenal selection packed into a tiny, out of the way little spot....itís like browsing in a library...take your time and enjoy......truly a memorable place.
Delicious beers everywhere. The staff and Sergio are not only knowledgeable but very interactive with the customers. The selection is amazing. The taps always include the delicious Kilkenny along with a handful of hard to find beers.
Impressive selection, although prices are a bit on the high side. The food is dreadful. Itís like visiting an eccentric friends house with posters, signs and boxes everywhere, and cooler after cooler of exotic beers
Dare I say the best beer bar in the US? Great taps, tons of bottles, and the ability to carry out bottles. Over 1500 bottles of various countries and decades. There are gems of gems here. The layout is awesome, totally old school place from the decor and menus but I love it. Its one cool as place. Sergio is super nice, other staff is a bit spaced out but helpful. The prices are perfect. I will be back and soon.
