A real oasis in southwestern Milwaukee County (there is almost no competition for Three Cellars, just grocery stores with weak selections). Three Cellars relocated Jan. 1, 2009, from a brightly lighted and boring strip mall to this warm, friendly space with a small bar (perfect for the free weekly Saturday afternoon wine and beer tastings). Wisconsin beers remain the strength (owner, Shawn, has been known to drive to smaller WI breweries with minimal distribution networks to ensure a better selection). All beers available as singles and a little discount offered for folks who register (free) on his website. Also possible to purchase a beer for consumption while you browse. A very nice shop.

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.

Only gets lower marks because it can be overpriced, but you can also drink your selection on premise!!!! Great owner who really loves beer.

The service here is Fantastic. I am only an occasional buyer. I stop in maybe once every two weeks. The owners always greet us (my wife and son join me). They have helped us both in choosing beers that suit our palets. They have even tried to stock beers I was interested in trying. I am always impressed with the single bottle selection of both Microís and non-US beers. They also have an impressive wine and sprit selection.

Stopped by Three Cellars, after realizing it was only a 5 minute drive from the hotel i was staying at, so I by-passed the famous Discount Liquor. This store reminds of Dennis Brothers back in the Twin Cities as it was meticulously organized and the man working there (the owner?) was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. He told me about the tastings which I am going to try and make on Saturday. I always love hitting Wisconsin liquor stores to pick up the brews I canít get back in MInny, but this one took the cake as there was a big singles section that will only continue to grow. A great shop with plenty of Stone, Lake Louie, Tyranena, South Shore, Lakefront, Great Lakes, and more! I will certainly be back next time I am in the area! The only drawback was lack of quality imports, specifically Belgians, although they did have some Ola Dubh 30 in stock when I stopped!

Great little place with a real neighborhood feel. Great selection of micros and imports available as singles. Selected beers on tap every week and free tastings and brew classes. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff and a great all around atmosphere.

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.

Iíve lived less than a mile from this store since it opened and Iíve never stopped in, thinking it was just another liquor store. After reading everyoneís comments on here I decided to check it out... what took me so long? This is a great store. The selection of singles is very impressive. The owner states they are at 500 on their way to 800! They carry many Wisconsin beers I had never heard of or seen until ratebeer.com (like Lake Louie) and a good selection of other beers from around the country and globe. The owners are very friendly and they have many free tasting opportunities - every Saturday and a Brewery event each month. Iíve been to a few tastings and as a newbie, thatís a great opportunity for me to try a lot of different beers... and of course buy a lot of different beers. They recently got in a shipment of glassware (Stella Artois/Duvel/Delirium/etc) , so thatís a bonus too. I recommend this place highly if in the area.

Went there because they had a free tasting if IPAs. The tasting wasn’t all that special. Just 5 brews, starting with crap then getting better. Great selection of micro brews all down one aisle. The dude working there was pretty helpful, and told me a bunch of beers he was still trying to get his hands on. Good selection of Founder’s, Left Hand, Sprecher, New Glarus, Avery, Sierra Nevada, Moylan’s and plenty others. Decent import selection as well. And almost everything they sell is available in a 12 oz. bottle, which was awesome.

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.
