I first visited Liquor Outlet (old name) in college and thought it was pretty cool. Years later, I been to hundreds of stores. And this liquor store continues to rank up with most. The prices were always great (though I understand KY raised the taxes on booze in April or May of 2009). The beer selection is a whole aisle and while you may not be able to find the very top of the line imports, the overall selection of domestic micros is impressive.
I was more impressed with the amount of alcohol related items in this place than the actual beer selection (which is above average). There is a few aisles of breads, olives, cheeses and sauces to shop. Hard to find foods too. In the back are two aisle of party supplies (everything from playing cards to party hats). If you like wine, there are probably five aisles, arranged by style to browse. Wine Spectator ratings are attached to help. Hard liquors, mixers and glassware are in the next two aisles. To top it off, the back wall contains homebrew supplies and literature. I easily spent an hour just wandering around.
You can always count on getting your staple beers and liquors here. Most of the time there is a great selection of beers...craft and imports. Occasionally you will be able to score some hard to find beers (e.g., 120-minute IPA by Dogfish Head, etc.). If you go shortly after they receive their deliveries you have a better chance at getting what you want. The workers are usually knowledgeable about the beers too.
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.
Your one-stop shop for your libation needs. Very good beer selection for a state that isnít known for good brew. Plus just about every liquor you could want and lots of party supplies. They have a walk-in cellar for wines. This location has an excellent selection of singles, and sells 1/2 gallon growlers at very good prices. They ícouldí have more singles cold, or a cellar room for Belgian beer. This location and the Springhurst store both sell brewing supplies, I cannot comment on the Fern Valley location. Prices on homebrew ingredients and equipment is pretty good, and they will order larger items for you. The in-store selection is not large, but contains the essentials.
Thereís 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 couldnít 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.
(Visited 7-14-08) The last stop on my beer tour for the summer- and it was worth the wait. Itís set in a strip mall, but donít let that fool you, the place is huge! Had an isle devoted to bourbon which I just had to grab a bottle or two. As I went to the beer isle, I noticed endcaps with 750ís and bombers on unique stuff (Stone vert, homewrecker)- had to grab those. My amazement was that I kept saying aloud,Havenít tried that, heard that was nice, havenít tried that... 2 isles and a walk in cooler later, I had a full cart of beer. My only complaint- couldnít make 6íers of my own choosing- DANG!!! While the staff are ok, I was there for the beer, and had the task of explaining to the wife why my cart was full. Perhaps I should see my mother in law more often who lives nearby...
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.
been in here a few times, most recently was to grab a couple of bottles of black butte xxvi. which they had several of. several taps handles so you can fill growlers. they are improving their singles shelves which is always nice because times i just want one or two bottles. liquor and wine selections are great. beer selections are quite good and they do have a walk in cooler as well. but iíll be damned if i can find the entrance to the secret squirrel room where the rare beers are kept. overall pretty good job there.
