Visited just before dinner on a Wednesday. Thrift store looking place from the front, though fairly normally laid out grocery store once you enter. The beer selection is in the back corner, selection is located in an open cooler featuring singles, a warm rack, and a walk in beer cooler with the remainder of the selection. Selection is below the other stores I have visited in Louisville, though still way above average compared with most grocery stores. Import selection in particular was solid. Certainly worth checking out, just not at the top of my list for Louisville bottle shops.

Grocery store. Kind of run down looking other than the beer area. Nice selection featuring several beers each from numerous different breweries. Their warm beer selection is lacking due to space, but you’ll still find several end caps next to and across from the beer cave. The beer cave is where the majority of their beers are kept. Prices are typical for the area, although they do have some nice specials fairly often. Newly added cooler shelf of single 12oz bottles for around $2.00 each is a great addition. And they have (I think) 12 taps which are usually running some great local and rare national beers. Ambiance is blah, (it’s a grocery store). Service can be a bit spotty and the only person who seems to know anything about the beer appears to be their beer purchaser. Definitely worth stopping by if you’re in the area. But ultimately there are better places to purchase beer in Louisville.

Grocery store with a pretty big beer selection. Walk in cooler with mostly main stays, some local West Sixth and New Albanian ticks. Singles selection which is nice to tick but not a ton of local stuff. The reason to come here is the growler station. 12 taps that are awesome and cheap as can be. $9-$12 including glassware for great stuff like Maharaja, Gumballhead, etc. Worth a stop.

Great beer place for a grocery store. I pur N/A for food because even though they are a good food source, you generally would not be eating there. Selection and price were very good for a grocery store. Actually better than many liquor stores that don’t focus on beer. Staff is hit or miss, but all seemed friendly.

Stopped in while in town with my wife. They have a good bottle selection with a growler station to boot. The grocery section was solid too, as was the value. Worth a stop if you’re in the area; I’d just avoid IPAs, as I’m not sure how quickly their stock turns over.

Well, it’s a Valu Market Store. but this store in particular has a pretty good layout and such. Did not need service. Selection is quite surprising, pretty comparable to Old Town, and (almost) everything they have is refrigerated. Trappist (Orval, Westmalle, Rochefort) to be had here, as well as other good Belgian, Canadian (Unibroue) and American (Bells, Dogfish Head) can be found at this location. Plenty of good prices on food, good variety, but I didn’t buy any. Great prices on beer. Large bottles of Avery and Arcadia were under 3 bucks a piece, and their other prices were comparable around town. A good little beer store within a grocer.***Update*** 11/25/12- This place has had a problem with keeping beer too long recently (six packs of IPA 6+ months old, for instance); still a great selection, but be cautious around time-sensitive beers here.

this is a grocery store with a small walk in cooler and a selection of i think 10 taps. the selection is nice with everything from boon and st. louis gueuze to local favorites like upland and west 6th. Last trip there my friends and i found a couple bottles of GI Madame Rose that hadnt made its way to Lexington yet. Food selection is that of a grocery store, i noticed anything special. Overall its worth a stop in because you might be surprised with what you find.

Large grocery still, half a dozen or so taps for growlers fills. Bottle selection is very small, bit there was a large cooler. Of course it wad locked, because to shop for beer at noon on a Sunday violates some religious principle that I have yet to discover or understand.

Nice grocery store with a decent beer selection. Walk-in cooler with lots of bottles and 6 packs, ect. Had a few things not seen elsewhere in Kentucky and the prices were good. Worth checking out. Grocery store looked nice too.

This is a grocery, nobody around to ask questions about their selection at the time. Most of the beer is in the back, in their beer cave. There are a few end caps near the beer cave that have some american cases and six-packs. There are some good Belgian singles, a few Germans, some American bombers, but the singles of american brew was lacking. Even in the middle of the summer the beer cave was freezing. I saw a bottle of Abbaye des Rocs Blanche des Honnelles which had a best by date of March 2011 (only 16 months too late). I picked up a couple bottles, but expected a little more based on the other ratings.
