Not much new to add, I do agree that this is the best singles place in the city. IMO some of the beer is overpriced, they list $8.19 as the per-six price for stuff like Slab City, but then have FFF sixes at less than $8. Regardless, a cheap way to fill in those "ratings holes" of local micros.
Another place Iíd recommend going to if youíre in Milwaukee, specifically for their single bottle selection...which is basically everything. If you want to try each & every available New Glarus brew, this is definitely the place to go. They also have offerings from Wisconsin breweries such as Ale Asylum, Sprecher, etc with regional single bottle offerings from Alaskan, AleSmith, and others. Iím a fan.
One of the last places you can mix your own 6íer. Pricing was a little tricky on my mixed 6íer last time i was in, but it was still cheaper than if I would have tried all those beers at a bar. Not many exclusives here but definitely a good selection of your standard craft/import beers. About 15 minutes from Milwaukee. Worth the drive if you are looking to mix up a 6pk!
Owner is friendly and forward thinking about expanding his selection. He is a knowledgeable individual with knowledgeable and friendly staff. They have recently stocked two different types of Corsendonk as a single selection offering, which I was shocked and pleasantly surprised to find there.
Excellent place to pick up singles. It looks like a dumpy place, but I love a place that has ambiance by lacking it. The service consists of two dudes sitting behind a counter not giving a shit, which is awesome, because I donít need your help when picking out beer. Iím sure they would have been more than helpful to answers questions. Anyways, the bottle selection was nice, and I didnít have any problems finding things here that I didnít see anywhere else. If youíre in Spillwaukee, pay this place a visit. The prices were fair, as they seemed to be pricing their beers as everyone else was. Great store, with a great selection.
New place is much more open and lit than the old place. What micros were jammed in 18 coolers in about a 20x15 area is now spread out and easier to see. Bigger has not - to this point - meant more micros. The staff is cashiers, not someone to ask if expanding the micro business is the next step of the plan. Overall a nice place for the Milwaukee area to buy bottles, sometimes with a better selection than even Discount.
