This place is massive, but the beer selection is really just one half aisle of micros, and a half aisle of macros. Prices were decent enough, but I didn’t find anything special here. Much better choices at Keg across the river.
There’s a huge amount of beer here which is mostly comprised of micros. The import selection is good, but not anything amazing. Fine with me, because I usually prefer to try some regional stuff anyway. I was like a kid in a candy store here, I couldn’t come to Louisville without stopping at this place. They even have draughts with which one can fill growlers to go. I spent over eighty dollars on a full shopping cart of beer and still left behind some brews I wanted to try.
Easy to find location with large parking lot in the front. Service was freindly. Selection is held on shelves and walk-in cooler with bombers and six packs. I found new beers including two BBC brews made for Liqour Barn. Beer store food and large selection of package liqour and wine. Great place for good brews in the tri-state.
Typical Liquor Barn with better selection. A guy stocking asked if I needed help, so that was a plus. Big selection of brews and most were available in singles. Beer is last two rows on the left. When I go back to Louisville I will drop by here.
Good selection of beers with a solid selection of foreign beers. Have a few taps for growler fills - can sometimes find some nice local beers. Also with a walk-in cooler - some extra beers there they don’t have outside. Overall a nice store.
I swung by here to pick up Stone, Brooklyn and some other things not available in Wisconsin. I only spent around $30 but could have done much more damage easily. Selection was decent, ranging from locals (Kentucky Ale and BBC) to further reaching brands like Stone, Brooklyn and Bells. Prices were very reasonable and the fact there is no tax helps even more.
This is definitely one of the must stop locations in town. Getting to it should be pretty easy as it is right off of I-64.

Been here twice now on my way back from the heartland and each time managed to score a couple boxes of sweet stuff. Nice to see stuff from Upland, Three Floyds, and Bluegrass here along with New Albanian and other regionals. Certainly the national stuff is well represented, with Stone, Founders, Bells, Southern Tier, et. al. Service was really helpful too. What’s especially nice about the LB locations is their growler station option. Picked up a couple cheapies from Sheltowee (and I mean cheap, like 6 bucks for the Java Dawg). And with this joint right alongside I-64, it’d be foolish not to stop if you’re passing through.
Chain liquor store vibe, but similar beer aisle layout to the Lexington store. Lots of domestics and regional beers, including Bells, Stone, Barrel House, Schlafly, Atwater, New Holland, BBC, Dogfish Head, etc. Belgian and European selection was a little disappointing, but not terrible. Lots of good wines, liquor, and party supplies too. However, I thought the Lexington store had a few more goodies. For example, a bigger selection of Bells (hopslam, consecrator, etc.).
Huge liquor store with two aisles devoted to beer and a huge walk in cooler. Decent selection of beers both local, regional and most major American brands. Decent foreign selection too. They had a build your own six pack in the back so I made myself a six pack of so-so beers. After walking around and seeing a few six packs with beers plucked out I asked if I could build my own. They said yes and I went ahead and joyfully made up six packs of Stone, Arcadian and anything local that sounded interesting. Five six packs and three bombers later I left the store happy.
Back in my home town, with my wife, reminiscing a little. It’s great to visit the beer and liquior store I used to be taken to as a kid; however, I doubt it was a Liquor Barn back then, but still, same location. With that, you walk in and there’s not much to look at, in terms of ambiance. The beer selection is pretty nice. I live on the West Coast, so most of the selection here is stuff that I can’t get back home. I was able to find some pretty sweet bottles here. The service was great, but I typically don’t need help. The prices didn’t seem out of line, or anything. Overall, great place for bottles, and seems good to me. Definitely worth a stop.
