The selection isn’t particulary large or diverse but its big enough and has some nice little finds if you know what you’re looking for and a great place to grab some local stuff. Overall quite impressive for a non-metro type locale. Whoever is in charge of the beer buying deserves a pat on the back.
Not a bad place. I’m told their craft beer selection grew significantly over the summer, but their mix and match discount selection is pretty lackluster. They were able to hook me up with a Vertical 10 but not without some effort. If something rare is coming, I usually get told to come back in a few days, at which point, it is typically gone. I feel like some of the employees are more helpful than others. Still, you aren’t going to find a better selection in the Purdue/Lafayette area.
I work at this village bottle shoppe. I’m just going to give you a brief insider about the staff of the place. We have a guy that is attending the california brewers guild in 2011 and also interning at people brewing co. in the summer of 2010, We have also founded a non-profit company called the tippecanoe brew crew that host beer tastings and we donate our profits to pints for prostate. The crew at village bottle shoppe is very well educated in beer and if you happen to come on a night that Sean is working he will be able to give you alpha acid percentage’s on certain hops as well as brewing advise. If anyone has questions on what we carry or what we can get please contact us via this number or send me a mesasge. 765-497-3523.
I like this place. There’s a very good selection. It feels like an emporium. There’s coolers and stands of a variety of decent beers. I was surprised to see some fairly rare imports like Norrebro and BrewDog. Lots of singles available, good Indiana breadth, and some good deals. There’s a mix your own six of discount beers for $5! I got Anchor OSA, Brooklyn, and others for that. A decent stop, worth checking out.
I was pretty excited to stop in here, and so when I did went straight to the beer coolers, and made myself a little 6-pack. The mix and match 6pack ended up totalling $17. They offer no discounts unfortunately. As I get to the counter to show my ID i was denied because I did not have two ID’s (state law). I was completely unaware of this, and while the lady helping was not rude, she made it seem like I should have known this was a law, even though I told her it was from Wisconsin. Fortunately for me, my girlfriend was with and she had two ID’s so it was success. The prices are pretty steep to say the least. But it was a good selection of beer.
quite a nice selection of beer. good service and friendly beer personnel are available. you can get something hidden from the back if you ask. didnt like buying a bunch of beers and not getting an itemized list. sure they would have heard that before.

Good place, I was helped out by the main beer purchaser. He was very helpful and gave me some good selections. Definitely worth stopping at if you’re in town
Not a bad spot to pick up some decent brews. They do have one cooler with single bottles, which is good for picking up stuff that you might not want a full sixer of when trying a beer for the first time. The staff was friendly and attentive. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the area and need good beer.
