Visited here on a visit to Louisville to do a barrel pick with Maker’s Mark. They don’t get much stranger than this. Maybe Kulminator in Antwerp is the only stranger venue. Bar in a residential neighbourhood, has a kind of shop front but then stretches all the way back through the shop with row upon row of fridges selling hundreds of beers, quite a lot of which are ancient. Obscure British cans of old no longer existent lagers like Skol or more interestingly old bottles of Gales Prize Old Ale. And the tap list is pretty outstanding. Zombie Dust, Chimay Blue, Fantome, Etc. Quirky, charming place well worth a visit. Interestingly when I visited there had been some big game on and some frat boy types were in there completely shitfaced, out of their depth drinking 750s of St Bernardus Abt 12. I have no idea why the barman didn’t kick them out as they were spoiling the vibe. I left when they started vomitting
Stopped in for some dinner and beers - liked the tap list and the epic number of bottles. Bartender was really cool, low key causal, semi run down place. Good beer stop. Found some lagers in the coolers way over ripe. So if you are buying bottles I’d be sure to check dates and buy styles that do ok on shelves for a while. Bottles were really pricey draft beer prices fine food cheap.
Absolutely a one of a kind place. It's an old house with a long addition that has some unicorn beers on tap and in many fridges. Not a pretty place, just tons of great beer. Sergio has been there both times I went, beers are served on the honor system, you tell him what you had & he comes up with a price. If you go to Louisville and don't go here you're missing out.
Quite the hole in the wall and unique. Great tap list. Cheap food. Excellent bottle selection. But bottle pricing is insane - easily double what it should be. I’d go for the taps and just oogle the bottles.
Hole in the wall bar that doesn’t even feel like you are in Louisville but damn do they have a lot of beer. If you are looking for something unique I highly recommend checking Sergio’s out. https://youllneverdrinkalone.com/bars/
Visited later in the evening on a Friday night. Some street parking is available, but is minimal. Not in a very nice looking part of town, so I would take a taxi or Uber here and just get dropped off. I had a hard time making sure I had the right place. If there is signage on the front of the building, I never did find it. The Chimay sign out front was my clue I was in the right place. Inside, the place is kind of impressive. Lots of taps with mostly international beers on tap. A great selection of sour beers, plus an unblended lambic I had been after for a couple years. After wandering around for a little bit, one of the guys that was working stopped me and let me know how the place worked. I appreciated that. I’m sure I looked lost. I ordered a beer and a gyro. The food was just okay, nothing really special, but I doubt many people actually come here just to eat. The draft list was amazing, as was the bottled selection. Several coolers lined multiple walls, plus there was a walk in cooler that had exclusively Belgian beers. Plenty of lambics in there to choose from. This place is a hidden gem, and even though it gets a lot of love on here, I don’t think the locals really know about it. Our Uber driver had no idea, anyway. This place is rough around the edges, but if I lived in Louisville, I would come here all the time. One last thing, CASH ONLY. Be ready for that if you go.
As others have mentioned, this place is a real dump/dive, but in a charming sort of way. There are a few parking spaces reserved for customers in the back, if needed. Cash only, though someone else mentioned there is an ATM machine inside. Place is fairly narrow, but long, front to back. Tons of coolers with tons of beer. Easily over 1000 different bottles from many different countries. Several draft options available, but unfortunately, I did not have time to partake. Had a nice chat with Sergio and his brother. Only negative here would be some of the beer looks like it’s been sitting in the coolers a very long time.
