Very nice, very relaxing environment. Great that you can enjoy a tap or bottle while you are there in the lounge area. The selection is of good quality but nothing that I found to be particularly special though. If I were visiting, this is a nice stop if you are nearby, but not go out of your way .

Theyíre very knowledgeable about beer (and wine, though Iím not too into wine). The customers are all very welcoming. Itís a nice departure for the typical pub scene. I love the rotating taps, because I know that I can expect something new and different every time I go and can expect all their drafts to be of a good quality. Itís probably the safest place to try something different, so for that reason I highly recommend checking it out.

Small little shop with 4 taps and a ton of singles. Picked up a bunch of new WI rates. Not as big of New Glarus selection I was hoping for. Stopping hear and Discount Liquor would cover everything you would want from Milwaukee. Service was fine while I was there, but I stopped in a 8:50 the night before after driving 20 minutes only to find out they were closed when are supposed to be open till 9. Slow night I guess.

Took forever to drive there. The place is pretty neat inside, more of a bottle shop, but with a small drinking area. Quite a few wines and beers to choose from. Nothing rare at all. Some stuff that has been sitting on the shelf for way too long (sorry an 8 month old Hop Whore is not ideal). There are about 4 tap lines if I remember correctly. Prices are high for Milwaukee. They have an awesome patio though. They will quickly chill any bottle for you and serve it after paying a "corking" fee. I enjoyed my time there, but the location and prices will make this an infrequent stop for me.

I was in town for a couple days when I visited Three Cellars and was hoping to pick up some local beers. This was definitely the right place to go. Impressive single bottles selection. Lots of Wisconsin beers and a bunch of other midwest beers in the singles section. I wish I had been in town longer so I could have made a bigger dent in trying local beers. The one downside I would note is that the prices seemed pretty high for singles, but I was more the willing to pay for the ability to try some many different local beers.

A bit hard to find at the end of a stripmall. Terrific looking/feeling place, with wooden racks of wine & beer all around. Not as large as it seemed when first entering. Nice selection of heavy local plus a respectable range of national craft stuff, including some stuff I have not otherwise seen in the area. Not a large brew area, although very singles-centric. Interesting having 4 taps with 3 separate seating areas to enjoy one - including out on the covered patio. Tender mentioned they can also "chill" any of the bottles in 4 minutes if the taps are not of interest to have on the spot. A bit pricier than the local area, but between the interesting selection and the potential to have one there, I will likely return.

Stopped by here on an early afternoon. Nice, new, clean store that is well organized. Service was alright, the shop owner tried hard but came off a bit pompous. He also went on some rant about CBS that left me un-impressed. Selection is alright, an area of local stuff plus other micros and a few beers on tap. Prices seemed very high on most stuff. Not a place Iíd go out of my way for, although they seem to be the only place around that lets you break up 6 packs and buy singles.

3 Cellars is a great little shop. The owner and staff treat you as if you were childhood friends from the moment you enter the store. Their recently completed tasting patio is amazing and a great place to sit and sip. They get a great selection of Rarer hard to get brews. I signed up for the email list and never think twice about making the 1.5 hour drive if there is a bottle I want. The owner is more than willing to hold a bottle for 24 hours for you if you call and request.
Note: I was torn on my average selection rating. While they get beers that are rare and are hard to find, they are a small shop. I held my rating at a 7 because if I lived closer this would not be my "everyday beer" bottle shop. I would however stop in at least twice a month if not more.

This place is decent. The prices arenít ridiculous, and they offer single bottles. The service is great. I found Discount Liquors to have a much better selection, albeit, they donít offer singles there. Being from Georgia, I found a lot here that I was interested in, but there was a lot that I could do without. I think they cater to the beer geek here, as opposed to Discount, where they seem like they donít give a fuck. Decent place, but I donít think Iíll be going back after the first visit.

Well I was looking for one good bottle shop to stop at while in Wisconsin, so I decided to stop here. A nice place, good ambiance and helpful employees. I was impressed by the bar-like feel to it, but honestly I was a little disappointed by the selection. They had an entire wall of singles with some pretty good stuff, but they only had 4 varieties of New Glarus and a lot of the more common craft beers/imports rather than a huge WI area. Also, this place is way overpriced compared to many other liquor stores in Wisconsin. Still worth a visit though.
